What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Now, you might think since each installment of this series features a disclaimer from the Small Town Pizza Lawyer, that would cement our cheap chain pizza loyalties. Nothing could be further from the truth. We here at Dubsism are gamblers, which means by definition we are opportunists. Not only does that mean we will jump at any chance we see as a potential money-maker, it also means we will be all over any “low-hanging fruit” in terms of premises for these bits.
As such, when the J-Dub Gambling Challenge netted a cool $4 after last week’s action, that amount reminded some of us of a certain age who used to subsist on cheap pizza for a great deal for it Be it three decades ago or this very day, a common characteristic for those days of young adulthood was a significant lack of cash.
Let’s be honest. In those days in or right out of college, most people don’t have much money. That means a deal like this meant you could fill up the part of your refrigerator not reserved for cheap beer with enough “four bucks a copy” pizza to live off for days. To be even more honest, you can eat like that in your 20s free from fear of nuclear-powered heartburn or pepperoni-grease and cheese induced colon-clogging constipation.
Another thing you don’t fear early in your adulthood is the heart-exploding coronary such a diet can give you. But when you hit your 50s and you’re a gambler, you don’t want to keel over because your diet is 70% baked cheese and hog anus; you want to flop over in your supermarket sushi when you left ventricle locks up because Clemson didn’t cover the over.
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.
Having said that, let’s get ready to gamble…
