What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Two weekends ago, I suffered the worst weekend of gambling losses in my three decades of betting on college football. While it may be a wee bit over-dramatic to make a comparison with a nuclear war, last’s week slight recovery from getting a $1,600+ smoking hole blown through the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bank Roll was just like the 1980’s “doomsday” tale “The Day After.” To make a long story short, the people who survived the initial blasts made a meager comeback, endured a fair amount of suffering, but the movie ends with them still alive and with at least some hope of a future, even if it might be a bit bleak.
In other words, as overly dramatic as it may be, a net profit of $108 after a $1,648 loss seems a bit like eating emergency rations huddled in some half-destroyed bomb shelter wondering if I should be embracing life or envying the dead.
With that image in your head, HAPPY SATURDAY EVERYBODY!!!
Having said that, let’s get ready to gamble…
DISCLAIMER: Because gambling is illegal at Bushwood, sir… and when it comes to gambling, I slice like Jack the Ripper working the deli coumter 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.
