Today is the day Shannon The Dude is set to begin his 50-mile walk around Lexington with a $5,000 cash prize waiting for him at the finish line if he can complete his journey in under 20 hours. The whistle will blow to send him on his way tonight at 10:00 p.m. which gives him until 6:00 p.m. Friday to accomplish his mission: two full laps around the STD Trail.
Considering this is the biggest event in sports right now and yes I know the NBA starts tonight, I set odds for anyone interested in gambling on Shannon The Dude’s walk. I cannot take your bets because I live in Kentucky and gambling is the devil here, but you can glance over the odds and leave your picks in the comments section at the bottom for funsies.
