Basketball-fuck off who cares. 
Baseball- no longer entertaining. 
Hockey-I'll watch until the Jets are eliminated, then pfft.

Football-to be determined. Not crazy about the Las Vegas Raiders and the game in general has been losing my attention for years.

Don't really watch much of Golf, tennis, NASCAR and boxing pretty much doesn't even exist anymore, at least for me. 

I'll catch EPL,  especially Liverpool games. 

But on the whole I really haven't missed it and have caught up on reading, listening to music, real wrestling and binge watching tv shows. 

I think that in the years to follow I'll mainly get sports through 15 minutes of highlights. And not because of millennial short attention spam syndrome but mainly because of the quality or lack thereof of the product . 

What's proline?

Betting on games. Maybe just a Canadian thing. Pick anywhere from 3 to 6 games, can be a mix of any sports that have games during a week. You can spread them out over the week or like I do for NFL pick 6 games off the Sunday games or the Monday nighter.
You pick WIN, LOSE OR TIE. Team has to win by 7 or more for a win. There are odds posted, like NE 2.5 to win over Cleveland and Cleveland is set at 7.0, say so higher payoff if Cleveland wins.
I normally play $5 and 6 games.
It's like a lottery ticket really. The system when your ticket is entered will multiply your $5 say x whatever the odds are for the games you picked.
Something like $5 x 2.5 × 5.0 × 1.6 × 4.0 × 4.0 × 5.0 or whatever they are and that number is your payoff. But you have to get every game on your ticket correct. 

You can pick 6 sure fire favorites with the lowest odds and bet $5 buck and make maybe $50 or less.
On a couple of occasions I've won over $2000.00 in a weekend and back in the days of tie games in hockey won $660 by picking 6 games in hockey because I had Boston and Montreal as a tie game and Boston scored with 6 seconds left in the game to tie it.
There must be something similar in Murica.

The rules changed on how much could be bet at any one time years ago.  I think the limit now is $50 but it was much higher at one time and these two guys in Toronto did nothing but handicap games and break things down and were spending big money and winning big. Ontario Lotteries got passed I guess, you really aren't supposed to win in their eyes, much like casinos. These guys had no jobs but were making a shitload of untaxable income because it's considered a lottery and therefore  not taxed  in Canada. 

This thread was great till Rossi posted that AA ruined it.
