We’re happy to announce that this summer over a period of several months we will all be competing in the Life’s a Gamble Summer Olympics.  There will be two teams:

The Backyard Burners lead by Nic


Dem Boys captained by Dan and Tony.

Each team will have a total roster of 6-8 people.  For each event the leader picks their best guys for that sport.  So in 3 vs 3 Basketball Nic will be picking his best two basketball players to join him against Tony, Dan and somebody they pick to be on their team.  The event list is not final and at this point several events are tentative.

  1. 3 on 3 Basketball
  2. 5 on 5 Soccer
  3. Tug of War
  4. Relay Race
  5. School Day (4 Square, Tetherball and Dodgeball) Best 2 out of 3 sports wins the day.
  6. Free Style Wrestling
  7. Bowling
  8. Golf
  9. Shuffleboard
  10. Table Tennis
  11. Rowing (2 person kayak race)

All events can be expected to have expert guest commentary and many will be filmed for the blog.  All events will be open to the public.  Any serious listeners can contact us via email @ lifesagamble727@gmail.com to see about the possibility about joining one of the teams rosters.  This is a long shot, but can’t hurt to try.  Our superfan LU is set to join the roster of Dem Boys.  Keep checking for Olympics updates both on the podcast and on the blog.
