I've been to at least 30 NFL games. When my wife and I had our second daughter, I still tried to convince her to name the kid Eli Manning. Now that we have two, I don't go to games anymore, but I still follow football obsessively.
One year, I predicted an entire game - who would score, how many times - and it's a legend among my friends. It came up at dinner recently and wife said, "if only you could actually make money off your amazing skills" and I know she was making fun of me, but I wondered if I could.
I'd heard about FanDuel, a sports betting platform before, so I thought I'd give it a shot. They have 2 apps - a fantasy league and the FanDuel Sportsbook feature for legit betting. I thought I'd try Sportsbook - your first bet is risk-free, so even if you lose, you can get up to $500 in site credit.
I signed up with my email, credit card, and SS# - the social blocks actual pro players, coaches, and referees from betting. Even though I'd never bet before, FanDuel made it easy.
They list all the sports on the left, and you can make different kinds of bets, like standards, teasers, and round robins - I didn't know what those were before I started, but after reading their betting guide, I know what I'm doing.
I can't wait to place my first bet on FanDuel Sportsbook (c'mon McGregor). Especially with the offer they have for new users. You get 12-1 odds for pre-fight Money Line bet on McGregor to win the fight on the first $10 wager. Right now, McGregors odds are at -300, so its a massive boost that could win me up to $120 in site credit for a $10 bet.
Dripping in sweat, I watched New York WIN. WHICH MEANT I WON. I became a legend that day. I wore my jersey (for the next 3 days) and paraded around like a peacock in front of my wife. She asked when I'd be getting my pennies, and when I showed her my actual winnings, her jaw dropped.
The app makes it all super easy - it looks more like a game than a complicated gambling site. It's free to sign up, and you can play as much as you want whenever you want, so once, for fun, I put money on a hockey game - every day there are Daily Odds Boosts, which are bets with a higher chance of winning. It was really fun and my friends are getting in on the action, too.
I've always been a football fanatic, but with FanDuel Sportsbook, I feel closer to the game than when I wear my NFL boxers.

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
