1/2 I get why we do the "how the books did" report every week during football season. People want to know. Still not sure why, but they do.

This week went like this:
Early games, the people had Ten, Indy and other winners

Then, Sea and Pats both lost.

Those two losing had it..
2/2 the people hanging on by a thread. The books were back ahead for what the old timers call a "ham sandwich."

Finally, the #LARams -800 and -13 go down to #FlyEaglesFly to blow up any teasers or money lines that may have made it.

The #NFL is a tough racket to beat every week
For some published reports of "how the books did", follow these guys (in no order):

The scores tell a story every week.

Story time from the book:

For the past 20+ years, Memorial Day meant it was going to be a busy day in the book..

All the games, people off work, and business was booming..

I’d hustle to go from working to getting to Pap Pap & Grandma’s for food..

This year, it’s different..
because now we are all living together..

2020 was life changing for so many of us..

I had a stroke eight months ago, and, not only do I feel amazing, but I gained so much..

Perspective, reflection, gratitude, just to name a few..all things I had but I needed a reminder..
In addition to Mrs Consig and the three Consig girls, I now have Grandma Deb & Pap Pap Rocco in the house with us..

A lot of generals up here in the ocean of estrogen, and, despite being a couple loud guys from Pittsburgh, Pap Pap and I are outnumbered..

As we completed this..

Story time from the book:

In the book, you don’t see women that much. It’s sports, it’s betting and it’s a lot of ego on both sides of the counter..

I say it all the time, but in case you missed it, nobody knows shit..

Except the women, of course, and Mother’s Day was always..
a special day in the book for me..

One thing we all know to be true is that we are here because of our mom. Whether your mom is a part of your life or not, that is on you and her..

It’s the hardest job in the world, yet there is no greater benefits plan or job satisfaction...
When I was in the book on Mother’s Day, I always gave any woman who came to the counter the Consig special..

Two drink tickets for Mother’s Day with your trip to the window..

“But I’m not a mom.”

I would smile and go “it’s fine. Have one for you and your mom.”

I would..

Story time from the book:

I often remember sporting events from days spent in the book over the years..

Games, bets or moments that were shared with people.

Dates & numbers that are etched into my memory.

April 23 is a date I will never forget but it was not for a game.. Image
or a bet but it involves both in a way..

Eight years ago today, on a Tuesday, I was off from the book when my phone rang at 6:38am..

Mama Consig was calling..

“Hey, Ma. Good morning. It’s a little early. What’s up?”

There was a long pause.

“David, I woke up this morning..
and your father wasn’t breathing. I called him, shook him, tried everything. He is gone.”

I jumped up to my feet immediately.

“WHAT? What did you say?”

She repeated her words, and I dropped to the floor from the worst gut punch I’ve ever taken.

The noises that came out of..

Story time from the book:

Little Consig got me last week with the shit bet..

Today, we bet on whether the most important man on the walk to school (and my next job), the crossing guard, would be wearing the same pants he has worn every day since her return to school..

day, we walk by this man as the wind howls. He holds up his stop sign in one hand and puts his other hand up, stopping traffic immediately like the crash test dummies commercial.

Most people walk by in a hurry and don’t say a word. I am not most people.

I see him every day..
and I greet him with something and a thank you everyday.

Keeping little Consig and all the kids safe from the maniac, running late for work, moms and dads is a grind, and I appreciate his efforts.

One day last week, I noticed he was wearing brown pants for the first time..

Story time from the book:

Last year, every morning, Little Consig and I walked to school..

8 minutes, priceless time, just me and her on the way to kindergarten..

We just went back to full time school this week, and already, we have a bet..

As a Consig kid, you got action..
when you want it, and we make odds on everything..

Parents know the day starts way earlier than the walk to school, but, as that Patriots guy says, there are no days off..

Here is what went on today by timeline on the walk to first grade in northwest Las Vegas..
6:30am, wake up call fight.

7am, argument to brush your teeth and get dressed ensues

7:01 mama leaves for work

7:08 Grandma yells upstairs “did yinz hear about the ketchup shortage?”

7:20 Pre game shit occurs

7:30 Still shitting..when I ask why, “there are no wipes”

Story time from the book:

So we are through round one of the Madness. It has been an absolutely crazy couple of days,

The next two days are always so much fun because now you know me, I know you and we are all enjoying the hoops.

Here are a few tips to make it go smooth the..
rest of the way of “boy band weekend” otherwise known as the NCAA tourney in the book..

1. NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY, cares about your bracket unless they ask. And even then, they may just be trying to be nice.

You had Ohio State in your Final Four? Texas? Or you had UConn..
in the Sweet 16? Two shits. Not one, but two shits. That’s how much anyone in the book cares.

And for all you geniuses (Not you Matty from Yahoo) who picked Oral Roberts and Abilene Christian and Ohio U outright, you all lyin..complete bullshit..

These guys could actually..
