What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Once again, we find ourselves at the end of one of the holy times on the Dubsism Liturgical Calendar; we are at the last of the Twelve Greatest Saturdays of the Year. Save your breath telling me about how there have actually been fourteen of them this year; we live in a world where the B1G Ten has fourteen teams and the Big 12 has ten.
While one can quibble over the numerics, the only number that matters is the balance on the J-Dub Gambling Challenge bankroll. Last Week saw a net profit of $138, thanks largely to a push on the Payday of the Week and the fact that I fundamentally misunderstand that Pac-12…probably because it actually has 12 teams as advertised. Anyway, the bankroll stands at a healthy $7,498 heading into the last Saturday of the regular season.
And while this might be the last time this season we say “let’s get ready to gamble,” stay tuned for the details on the upcoming Fifth Annual Wally Hotvedt College Football Bowling Challenge where you can stack up your college bowl picks against the most interesting independent college football prognosticator on the web.
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.

Happy Thanksgiving, brother.
May none of your wagers be turkeys.
Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. But you know at least one of those wagers will be a turkey…which is OK as long as it doesn’t have ptomaine.
