The Third Annual Wally Hotvedt College Football Bowling Challenge

For the third year in a row, we here at Dubsism are pleased to bring you the Wally Hotvedt College Football  Bowling Challenge.  If you aren’t familiar with Mr. Hotvedt, he was one of the hosts of a “deep cut” from the history of independently-produced Twin Cities television known “Let’s Bowl.”  This was a bowling-based pseudo-game show turned full-on parody of crap television.  For those of you familiar with the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, you know “Let’s Bowl” was a staple at the iconic Bryant-Lake Bowl.

“Let’s Bowl” has a lot in common with Dubsism.  They both involve sports, they both involve a lot of parody, and they both got an audience of several. On top of that, Mr. Hotvedt and J-Dub share some debilitating  personal problems, namely a shame-based coping mechanism, issues with the old John Barleycorn, and in J-Dub’s case, degenerate gambling.

That’s why Wally Hotvedt is our Grand Marshal, and will be until he A) gets accused of sexual harassment or B) is declared legally dead.  To be honest, we are a bit worried about “B,” because nobody has heard from Wally in a while.  But to be even more honest, that’s probably why “A” hasn’t happened yet.

Here’s what different about this year’s College Football  Bowling Challenge.  This year, J-Dub got brutalized in his own season-long gambling campaign.  That means this year is your chance to “spike the ball” on his worst year EVER as a guy betting on college football.  Out of his original bank roll of $5,000, all J-Dub has left is $2,640.  That’s an almost 50% loss, and you can inflict 100% misery by kicking his ass in his own challenge.  Judging on the regular season, that shouldn’t be that tough.

Joining the Wally Hotvedt College Football  Bowling Challenge should actually be easier that sticking it to J-Dub.  All you have to do is follow this link, use the pool ID 142201 and password letsbowl, pick your college bowl game winners, and if you can out-pick J-Dub, we won’t tell the probate court you are willing to be the executor of Wally’s will.

For purposes of clarity, just like the J-Dub Gambling Challenge, this is a “pick against the spread” pool,  which means:

» All games are picked against half-point spreads
» 1 point for each correct pick
» How it works:

  • Picking against the spread is where you try to determine which team will cover the spread; not necessarily which team will win.
  • While certain teams will win their game, they will not “cover the spread”, and thus if the team is selected it will count as a loss.
  • Example:
    • The home team is favored by 16.5 points (-16.5)
    • The home team beats their opponent by 8 points (31 to 23), but, the home team’s spread was (-16.5), so, when picking against the spread, the home team’s score was 14.5 (31 minus 16.5), which is less than their opponent’s score of 23.
    • This means anyone who picked the home team to win by 16.5 points or more was incorrect, since they only won by 8 points

Sign up today, and maybe you can have the opportunity to tell J-Dub he’s an even bigger loser than Wally Hotvedt.  The results of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge can tell you that.

As a Philadelphia Eagles fan. I think I'm taking the Carson Wentz injury in a rational manner... GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY! Watching a Cheap Trick concert. Rick Nielsen's guitar for the win.
