Anyone else weird like me?

Reddit Sports - 6 hours 37 min ago

So as I was growing up and playing sports I noticed a weird trend. I write left handed for one. Kick left footed(?), bat left handed, play tennis left handed. But, when it got to other stuff like throwing, I do that right handed and I shoot a basketball right handed. All my coaches thought I was goofy. Anyone else like this as well?

UMBC was +2500 on the moneyline against Virginia, while the Cavs were -10000

Reddit Sports - 6 hours 39 min ago

I'm in Vegas on my annual March Madness trip, and checked the moneyline after UMBC's magnificent upset win. (For those who don't gamble, +2500 means a $100 bet on UMBC to win would have paid $2500, and a bettor would need to bet $10000 on Virginia to win $100.)

I asked the cashier as the sports book if they had anyone who had bet on UMBC, and he said, "Oh yeah, we always get a few. Some people like the odds and want to take a flier on the underdog." When I noted that Virginia was -10000 and no one would make that bet for so little return, he snorted and said, "We always have some." So some people out there blew $10000 for the opportunity to possibly make a 1% return on their money.

Some other people out there really really love UMBC today.

Need a belay in Athens, Greece

Reddit Sports - 6 hours 49 min ago

Hey guys! First post here, so let me if this is in the wrong location.

I'll be in Athens next week and I'm looking for a climbing partner to hit some of the local sport walls in the afternoon/evenings. I found a few details on Mountain Project, but am still looking into more crags. I climb around 6a/5.10b on outdoor lead, but can clean some harder routes if you want to put them up. :)

PM if you're interested!
