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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2019: Week 6 – “Right Actor, Wrong Movie”

Last week, I called the Pac-12 the “Fredo Corleone” of college football. Considering the Pac-!2 tried to leave me bleeding in the gutter again, it begs the question…who is dumber? Fredo himself or the guy who keeps betting on him. While you are discussing that amongst yourselves, I might as well share my new theory about the Pac-12. While that conference may still be a John Cazale character, it’s just not “Fredo.”

Rather, I’m changing my analogy for the Pac-12 to Cazale’s “Stan” in 1978’s “The Deer Hunter.” There’s a couple of reasons for this. One is Cazale was dying of lung cancer during the making of this movie; all of his scenes were shot first as he dies before the film was completed.

Secondly, there is so much playing of “Russian Roulette” in this movie there just simply can’t be a better metaphor for gambling on the Pac-12. Either way, you’re going to end up dead, and whether it was Marlboros or a .38 revolver, you will have done it to yourself.

 

Sincethat is out of the way, let’s talk about the bankroll this week. Despite the best efforts of the aforementioned “Suicide Conference,” the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll is back in the black, if only by the slimmest of margins. After last week’s net profit of $258, the total for the season so far stands at $5,018, which while that may not be much, it represents the latest the bankroll has been on the upside this late in the season in three years.

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.
