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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2019: Week 5 – “This Is The Business We Have Chosen”

There a scene somewhere in the “Godfather” trilogy where the subject of people being murdered is being discussed, and it is lamented as the cost of doing business.  The line “this is the business we have chosen” is also something gamblers can say after they’ve taken a brutal beating.

Well, the beatings don’t get much more brutal than what happened this past weekend.  In our last installment of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge, the theme was all about how gambling is all about hope…and cheating the foul specter of death.

While that may be a balancing act as precarious as leaving a radio on the side of the bathtub, it doesn’t help matters when you have a low-wattage bulb like “Fredo” unwittingly or not helping you to meet your maker.  As far as this gambling challenge is concerned, the Pac-12 Conference is the “Fredo” of college football.

You can count on “Fredo” not only to fumble the pistol while you’re being gunned down in the street, but to sit there and cry while you are bleeding out in the gutter.  Later, “Fredo” who doesn’t know he’s setting you up to get whacked.  Eventually, you won’t be able to wait until you can send “Fredo” to go fishing.

Through all that, it is still at the Cuban “nudie” show that you realize “Fredo” and “Johnny Ola” knew each other, it was Barzini all along, and that the challenge bankroll took a $593 hit, leaving it at $4,760.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER (mandated by our very own Small Town Pizza Lawyer):

Thanks to the Supreme Court, gambling is no longer illegal at Bushwood, sir. However, the Supreme Court can’t really help me unless one of them is willing to keep Mrs. J-Dub from braining me with a cast-iron skillet if she found out how many dimes I’m dropping on college football. That means that as far as she knows, all wagers are mythical in nature and this is in no way, shape, or form a gambling advice column. In other words, if you lose your own “real” money, that’s nobody’s fault but yours, so don’t yell at me when we meet at the plasma center on Monday.

    Yeah, I hit no winners last week either BUT I’m alive in two my eliminator pools.

    Knowing that I’ve already taken the Pats, Chargers and Texans, who should I take this week, oh swami?
