Re: What Makes Byk Tick?

Byk has a good show but is a Terrible handicapper. Haskin asks Where does Byk get the time to handicap? How long does it take to pick numbers out of a hat?

Dave was always a gentleman and made interesting posts. We chatted a bit off forum quite a few years ago. I'm sure he'll be missed by those close to him.
