Dubsism

What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Tonight, J-Dub Becomes 1K-Dub

The best talent for a blogger to have is propensity to rant. I love to rant about sports, and most people give two shits less about them. 1,000 posts ago, that was really the genesis behind Dubsism; an outlet for my rants which nobody wanted to hear.  Somehow, this thing has lasted for 1,000 posts.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.  This all got started on the day in 2009 when the Minnesota Vikings signed Brett Favre; that was the day the very first post on this blog came as an outlet for my reaction to the extreme stupidity that happened in the Twin Cities that day.

During the next 999 rants, Favre remained a popular topic on Dubsism, which is surely part of the reason why this blog has grown into one of a select number of independent sports blogs that have both  survived the test of time and that occasionally gets a reader.

As far as the test of time angle is concerned, look at some of what has happened over the last 1,000 posts.

  • Joe Paterno goes from Dubsism’s most-blogged about person to a legend who suffered an ignominious end
  • Speaking of falls from grace, Lance Armstrong go from cancer-surviving hero to disgraced juicer
  • One of the greatest comeback’s in sports history EVER… The US America’s Cup Team storming back from a 1-8 deficit to keep the Cup where it belongs by beating New Zealand 9-8.
  • Tim Tebow’s entire professional football career, and it’s apparent rebirth in Philadelphia

While you ponder that, take a look at just some of the things Dubsism has brought you during that same time.

Out of the 1,000 the one about Top Salaries in Obscure Sports was the most read, but the one about University of Tennessee students who like to pour booze up their butts is rising quickly.

There were several choices for what got you to comment. On the serious side, there was an assessment of the Penn State sex abuse scandal. From the ever-popular “List” format, lots of people had things to say about The Quintessential List of the 30 Greatest Quarterbacks.

There were movie parodies, such as the Dubsism version of Apocalpyse Now which takes place in the swamps of the SEC.

In addition, there were hundreds of J-Dub posts on the now defunct Sports Blog Movement, many of which are featured in series that now make a home on Dubsism.

  • Sports Doppelgangers: The series for sports and celebrity look-alikes
  • Tales of Depression and Sorrow: Stories of long-suffering fans of not-so-good teams
  • Conversations Not Meant To Be Public: Great stuff unearthed by Dubsism’s investigative journalism division. DISCLAIMER: Buy “unearthed,” J-Dub may mean “completely fabricated.”  But its some seriously funny stuff in any event
  • Grinds My Gears – My rants about teams or people in sports who piss me off
  • Comparisons – Exactly what you would expect…looking at things outside the sports world and showing you that if life imitates art, then sports imitates life
  • Signs We Are Near The End Of Civilization – The Bible talks about Armageddon; believe what you will. But there’s plenty of evidence out there supporting the idea we are fucking up our own lives every day
  • The Deep Six: A Ryan Meehan joint (often featuring J-Dub) exposing the foibles of pop culture in sports
  • Dubsism has also been proud to be the web’s exclusive home of the Jamie Moyer for the Hall of Fame campaign.

That last series takes us to all the guest columns and collaborations Dubsism has done over the years. For all questions about the business of sports, the Dubsism “go-to” guy in legendary general manager Joe McGrath. The sports world has a definite intersection with the law, and private investigator Jim Rockford covers that. The sports world is getting more international every day, and to walk us through that we have King George VI.

Dubsism even has collaborators that actually exist.

Several former members of Sports Blog Movement show up in the annals of Dubsism as well; hockey guru Jeremy Wiebe offered us some great insights into the world of European soccer.

The one seen most often is the aforementioned Ryan Meehan from First Order Historians.  He’s lent a pen to all kinds of things, not the least of which was the sole Dubsism foray into politics.

I’ve also worked with Chris Humpherys from SportsChump, who not only gave us the definitive podcast on The Masters, but his skill as a bartender partnered with my rampant alcoholism is a match whose level of perfection hasn’t been seen since Dr. Jonas Salk and the polio vaccine.

That’s why tomorrow night (4/25/2015, @ 7 p.m.) you will see both Meehan and Humpherys featured prominently in the Blogger’s Roast of J-Dub in honor of his passing this milestone.

After all that, the one thing that remains…I was absolutely right in everything I ever said about how the Brett Favre era in Minnesota would end.  Everything.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  1. Congratulations, my brother.

    Glad to be along for the ride.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go text somebody a picture of my penis.
