Listen every degenerate has their bad beat stories. After all there are millions of bad beats every weekend. Impossible finishes that snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. But of all my heartbreaking losses and there has been thousands of them this horse race may have been my most painful ever. I had 500 bucks on the 3 horse to win at 19-1. 19-1! For all you mathematicians out there that means I would have won roughly 10K if my horse won. I’ve never put that much money on a long shot before in my life. To be honest I’m not even sure why I did it. It was just a spur of the moment type thing. I just had a feeling. It’s only internet dollars right?
Well needless to say I collapsed into a ball of despair when this race ended. I’ve watched this race at least 50 times because I’m masochistic like that and I still don’t know how he didn’t win. Like everytime I watch it I expect my horse to blow by the winner and for me do a Scrooge Mcduck swan dive into my money vault. But somehow every time I watch it the result is the same. I just don’t get it. How didn’t I win this fucking race? I’ll never come this close to this big of a score again. Shit so ain’t right it’s not even funny.
