Two sporting events that I attended stand out. The first was the "Belichek call" game between the Patriots/Colts in 2009 in Indianapolis. Had a friend who's business had a sky box. When Brady and the Pats offense stayed on the field for that 4th and 2, it was deafening. Although Lucas Oil is not quite as loud as the RCA Dome was. One other game stands out, not that the game had any meaning at the time, but more what it symbolized. It was in late July of 2013 between the Cubs and Brewers. This was the last game I attended at Wrigley, but was the Cub debut for Jake Arrieta, who was pretty unknown at the time. I had a friend who's a very good handicapper and when that trade was made, he was raving about Arrieta's upside. I guess the Rizzo trade preceded the Arrieta trade, but without Jake, there's no World Series win in 2016.
Least favorite city? St. Louis. It's a dump. It's hotter than hell in summer, the entire infrastructure is seemingly always under construction, someone tried running me off the road there once, and in terms of violent crime, its a top 3-4 in most dangerous cities in the country. The fact I'm a Cubs fan doesn't even enter into it.
I spend about $60 a month on trading software. During a long term bull market, its not really necessary, but non bull markets, it helps provide clarity, using an algorithm that combines fundamentals and technicals. It also can track 8500 different companies, something I could never do.
