For me it does play a role. Checking scores. Watching games. Watching numbers. The television always has a game or match on. Everyday for thr past 10 years I dont think I've gone without watching sports (barring a medical issue or emergency of some sort) Money does come and go. You win some, you lose some. If you win enough you just have enough to keep going and never stop. No sane woman wants to live with a man like this.
