What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
The Dubsism tag line on the home pages still remains as the best description of this site…it is what your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions. Dubsism was founded in 2009, and in that time, not only have there been many posts, but also several partnerships, both of which have led to some features you can only see here at Dubsism.
Comparisons – Exactly what you would expect…looking at things outside the sports world and showing you that if life imitates art, then sports imitates life.
Lists – We love a list here at Dubsism, and our list of lists isn’t what you will get anywhere else.
Grinds My Gears – My rants about teams or people in sports who piss me off.
Open Letters – More”center-cut” chops of J-Dub at his best…pissed 0ff.
Signs We Are Near The End Of Civilization – The Bible talks about Armageddon; believe what you will. But there’s plenty of evidence out there supporting the idea we are screwing up our own lives every day.
Guest Columns – This series takes us to all the guest columns and collaborations Dubsism has done over the years. For all questions about the business of sports, the Dubsism “go-to” guy is legendary general manager Joe McGrath. The sports world has a definite intersection with the law, and private investigator Jim Rockford covers that. The sports world is getting more international every day, and to walk us through that we have King George VI. On special occasions, we even have a round table made up of former NFL place kickers.
Dubsism even has collaborators that actually exist. The one seen most often is Ryan Meehan from First Order Historians. He’s lent a pen to all kinds of things, not the least of which was the sole Dubsism foray into politics. But most often, Meehan shows up on The Deep Six, which is a Meehan creation (often featuring and/or done by J-Dub) exposing the foibles of pop culture in sports. Meehan is also the creative force behind 7 Questions, which is an awesome interview series with comedians and other entertainers.
Dubsism has also worked with Chris Humpherys from SportsChump, who not only gave us the definitive podcast on The Masters, but his skill as a bartender partnered with my rampant alcoholism is a match whose level of perfection hasn’t been seen since Dr. Jonas Salk and the polio vaccine. Several former members of Sports Blog Movement show up in the annals of Dubsism as well; hockey and soccer guru Jeremy Wiebe offered us some great insights into the world of European soccer.
Dubsism has also been proud to be the web’s exclusive home of the Jamie Moyer for the Hall of Fame campaign.
There’s also several features which began on the now-archived Sports Blog Movement and now make a home on Dubsism. Sports Doppelgangers is the series for sports and celebrity look-alikes SBM archive here, and the most recent episodes on Dubsism here.
Conversations Not Meant To Be Public: Great stuff unearthed by Dubsism’s investigative journalism division. DISCLAIMER: Buy “unearthed,” J-Dub may mean “completely fabricated.” But its some seriously funny stuff in any event Again, the SBM archives are here, and the most recent Dubsism pieces are here.
