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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2017: The “30 For 30” Edition

The “30 For 30” documentary series is one of the few things the pigeon-brains at ESPN do well.  The latest installment featured the exploits of classic old-school wrestler “Nature Boy” Ric Flair.  Fret not DVR devotees, this won’t contain any spoilers.  While I was never a professional wrestler, I was once a professional gambler.  If you’ve been following the J-Dub Gambling Challenge this college football season, you’ll understand why I’m sticking to the sanctuary offered by gambling “retirement.”

The point here is that professional gamblers and professional wrestlers share a common trait; we both have lives full of stuff to which the average guy can’t relate.  Most of you never did stuff like Flair did (again, no spoilers) and most of you never had to cover your bookie action by mortgaging your house while you were unemployed and cooking up cover stories to your live-in girlfriend about why dudes are showing up on your door-step at 6:30 a.m. demanding $2,000.

Another reason why this is the “30 For 30” edition is that’s what the bank roll took down last week…$30 hard-working, old-fashioned American dollars.  That may not be worthy of a Flair-esque “WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” but it’s what we have. That means the worst season in the history of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge enters the homestretch month of November at $3,788, but there’s still time to get things right. Insert your own “famous last words” jokes here…

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.
