Recently I’ve started putting more thought into trying to win a GPP instead of not winning GPP’s. This can be a nice strategy thread for people that are also trying to start winning GPP’s too.
One thing I like to do each night is pick one theme song on youtube and listen to it on repeat for 3-4 hours while I’m building lineups. I think it turns me into a maniac and that’s what you need to win a GPP. You need to be a maniac. Driven to the core of pure psychosis. You gotta feel the flow. That’s the key. I feel like a lot of guys just sit down and belch out “CHAD PINDER” or “ANTONIO BROWN” and then get mad they didn’t win a Million Dollars. No man. You got to get sick about this stuff. You’ve got to treat this like you’re a real athlete. Be the ball. You can’t just say Chad Pinder you’ve got to BE CHAD PINDER.
Then most importantly I play the SAME SONG while I watch the games. You don’t want to watch the games listening to a different song than you built the lineups to or that’s completely sabotaging the mentality behind building those lineups.
Like all day today I’m listening to “I dont know much, but I know I love you” on repeat. ALL DAY. My neighbors think I’m crazy. Ask me if I give a heck. I’m trying to win a Million Dollars and they’re trying to cook Hamburger Helper and feed their golden retriever. You got to make yourself go crazy man. Same song. ALL DAY. That’s the only way to drive yourself completely insane enough to start visualizing the winning lineup that night. By Hour #3 you’re sitting there singing along and blending DFS with the Music.
Aaron Neville’s looking deep into Linda Rondstadt’s eyes
Look at this Slate, I know which game ESPN Is showing,
Listen to Kevin Roth’s weather report, to find out which way the winds are blowing,
I don’t know much, but I’m fading Kershaw,
And that may be all I need to know.
Then by nightfall I fully expect Linda Rondstadt sweet voice to start morphing into
Look at these prizes, I’ve never won one that matters.
Look at these lineups, So Broken and so Battered.
I don’t much, but I know I love Rotogrinders.
And that may be All there is to know…
Okay, whose everyone like in the TCU vs SMU college football showdown slate tonight? Is this like a Tracy Chapman “Fast Car” slate? Or more like a “Mr Jones and Me” Counting Crows type a deal?
