What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Remember a while back when I called the Pac-12 the “Fredo Corleone” of College Football? Well, they exacted their revenge for that slight last week. Just look at the GIF and picture those three bat-wielding beat-down artists as Arizona State, Washington State, and UCLA. Just when I thought I was at a point where I could trust them, all of a sudden I’m a batting-practice target To be fair, they weren’t the only ones who turned me into a figurative bag of shattered bones, but they are the ones who like Fredo “broke my heart.”
To be fair, they weren’t the only ones who took a Louisville Slugger to my kneecaps this weekend, but they were the ones who in short order took away all hope of a recovery. Sure, my Payday of the Week tanked, and a monsoon in the Midwest wreaked havoc on over/unders across the board, but it was those West Coast games that pounded home the reality last weekend was the biggest beating I’ve taken this year. When all was said and done, the J-Dub Gambling Challenge bankroll took a $775 hit, leaving the season total at $5,675.
There may be a saying about getting right back on the horse after you get bucked off, but I’ve never heard one about what you do after you get your knees pounded into peanut butter. So, screw it…let’s get ready to gamble!
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.
