Gambling: Confidence hasn't been lost

I’ve had one friend tell me he was “sharpening his résumé’’ in hopes of serving as my midseason replacement. Another asked, “What’s it like to be in crisis mode?’’ And my mother said she’s worried I’m going to lose my job.

Yes, last week was my worst week ever in print, but I’m looking at my deficit as an opportunity for a revival. I’m a second-half guy. Entering Week 11 last year, I was down nearly $400 and roared back to finish at plus $1,522 after the Super Bowl.
