What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Vegas’ long national nightmare is finally over. The winning streak enjoyed by the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll is finally over.
Maybe it’s because I tempted the gambling gods with last week’s post bemoaning a small return on investment. Maybe it’s because eventually all things return to the mean. Or, maybe it’s just because I made some awful bets.
Pick whichever reason that suits your fancy; it really doesn’t matter. The bottom line for the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll got closer to the bottom to the tune of $538, leaving the season total at $6,633. But just to be on the safe side, I want the gambling gods to know I’m grateful for every penny over the original $5K.
Now, let’s see if I can get it back…
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.
If you think you have a gambling problem, go find the 800 number on your own. I’m not a goddamn public service announcement.
Since I live in the heart of Big Ten country, almost literally in the shadow of Ross-Ade stadium, those around me who know I’m a gambler will invariably ask me about the Boilermakers, so I might as well bet on them…

We went back to the very first college football game in 1869, and the premise is simple…you’re the champ until somebody beats you. The current champion is the Texas A&M Aggies.
Texas A&M is idle this week
It’s like the game says…the idea is to hang on to your cash. That means this is the “big play” of the week; the one that should make today “Payday.”
