By midseason, it had become a reflex action. A Buffalo Sabres player would get open for a scoring chance, and he'd pass up the shot. Instinctively, I'd look at Phil Housley. The coach would lift his hands in disbelief, turn his back to the play and take a second to gather himself. He'd then say something to the players on the bench. Almost from the moment Housley ret…

On Sunday, I bet another and won that, too. Each bet was $20, a modest sum to pay for the thrill of waiting for the games to come in. This is easy, I thought. I could do this for a living. Then I came to my …
