    I created an account at both, but I've only put $ into Draft Kings so far. I put $10 into my account, and got a free $3 play when I signed up. Thought it might be fun, I don't have a gambling problem, so if I don't win, I don't win.

    That said, I think I have a pretty good week 1 team. At least on paper, anyway.

    Is there a difference between Draft Kings and Fan Duel?

    They are both the future bookmakers of America. Enjoy.

    I really can't say that I blame you whatsoever.

    But with that said, I wouldn't be shocked if the Chargers won the 'Ship this year. :facepalm:

    I use DraftKings for golf. That's where the "Fish" are to use a poker term. Bunch of old white guys using golfers they've heard of instead of course history and current form.

    I stay away from football because too many injuries happen. More luck and less skill in my opinion.

    That explains the loud fireworks I heard. :smile:

    I didn't even know about it, if I had, I could have taken a 3/4 mile walk to an awesome overlook of the stadium. :cuss:

    I've not seen it since the last time I was there at the Murph in 1987.
