What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
For the fourth consecutive yea, 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 $985. That’s over an 80% 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 160661 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:
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.
