What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
If you are a fan of “The Simpsons,” you know the two characters who characters who appear in the info-mercial for the juice machine. First, there’s actor Troy McClure, who you may remember from such films as “Cry Yuma” or “Here Comes the Coast Guard.” Then, there’s the classic quack Dr. Nick Riviera, who has many classic lines, but the one that matters for our purposes here is the infamous “Juice Loosener.”
What kills you in gambling is “the juice,” otherwise known as the fee you pay to place a bet. In most cases, this is 10% of the bet and you pay it up front. That’s why it costs $55 to place a $50 dollar bet. That’s what is killing the J-Dub Gambling Challenge. Most doctors will tell you having a glass of juice with breakfast everyday is a healthy thing. Those doctors aren’t gamblers. Juice kills.
DISCLAIMER: Because gambling is illegal at Bushwood, sir… and when it comes to gambling, I slice like Jack the Ripper working the deli counter on crystal meth. That’s why this in no way, shape or form is a gambling advice column, and all “bets” are mythical in nature. In other words, don’t come crying to me when you lose your house payment betting real money like I’m “betting” Monopoly money.
