As I start to plan for my retirement, albeit a bit late,
Editor’s Note: Way, WAY too late.
As I was saying, as I start to plan for my retirement, I’m beginning to think that counting on income from sports gambling winnings may not be the best plan.
Editor’s Note: You can bet on that.
At the beginning of 2020, my home state of Illinois legalized online sports gambling. I thought nothing of that because within no time at all, there were no sports. Thanks, COVID.

Now that the Olympics are over, I am thrilled to be back to watching real sports like Skateboard Pole Vaulting …
