What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
For the fifth 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 for this annual event 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.
Speaking of gambling, the 2019 version of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge snapped a two-season hemorrhage. This year the gambling Gods smiled on the bankroll, taking the original $5,000 to healthy $7,755. That’s why the prize for winning this College Football Bowling Challenge is something you can actually spend.
It’s pretty simple. Pick the most winners, and we will send you $25 hard-working American dollars. That’s enough to buy a case of beer to spray all over your living room in celebration. Not only that, the winner will receive a certificate suitable for framing to signify that for one brief moment in time, they were better than all the other Dubsists out there.
