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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2017: The “Mr. Rogers’ Word For Today” Edition

If you’re my age, you remember Mr. Rogers.  Even if you aren’t my age, this guy bookends your PBS Saturdays.  You can begin a beautiful day in the neighborhood with Fred Rogers, and wind it up with “Wunnerful, Wunnerful” re-runs of Lawrence Welk.  Either way, one of the staples of “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” was his “word of the day.”  This was his way of offering education is small, easy-to-digest bites, and after what happened last week in the J-Dub Gambling Challenge.

Two weekends ago, I suffered the worst weekend of gambling losses in my three decades of betting on college football.  One weekend ago, I made a modest comeback.  Last weekend was like Mr. Rogers leading Lawrence Welk’s orchestra in a touching tribute to the late great Tom Petty.  Even if you think that’s a good idea, once you hear “Last Dance With Mary Jane” get destroyed on the accordion, you get where I’m going.

But just in case you don’t, that’s why I alluded to those tasty morsels of education known as the “Word of the Day.” If you’re two-thirds my age, you might remember Eddie Murphy’s spoof of Mr. Rogers where he hit “Word of the Day” harder than Adrian Peterson’s kids. In other words, be it Mr. Rogers or Mr. Robinson, we have an important lesson for all you little would-be gamblers out there.

That’s right, kids.  J-Dub’s “Word for the Week” is “Non-Cover Win.”  To make a long story about as short as the J-Dub Gambling Challenge’s bank roll, a “non-cover win” is when the team you bet on wins the game, but they didn’t cover the point spread.  This is the bane of the gambler, and it is the prime mover behind the bank roll taking a $585 hit last week.

I know to kids that doesn’t sound fair, but that’s why they call it gambling, and that’s why only bad people like those of us in Mr. J-Dub’s Neighborhood are gamblers. After all , it’s not like you can judge me…you’re reading this.

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.

  1. So Michigan State has beaten Michigan eight out of the last ten times they’ve played?
    What’s up with that?
