Sports hungry gamblers place over $1 million of bets on a push up challenge.

It seems like it's been forever since there were any sports. It's a strange world without them. I have friends that are really losing their minds because that's all they enjoy. For them, the only activity better than sports is betting on the games. At this point, they are totally lost.

Replays of old games will only last them so long. Especially, when Illinois was about to get legalized waging on sports. It was supposed to start with March Madness. Now what?

Well, I saw fans were placing bets on "WWE Wrestlemania." Some brave souls have been throwing money on predicting the weather. Yeah, I know. They're really desperate. I think the big-timers will gamble on just about anything.

According to,

"Bettors were able to get their fix this week after an interesting bet was live-streamed on Twitch for 12 hours. Peter Christensen bet Jonathon Bales $2,000 that he wouldn’t be able to do 2,400 push ups in 12 hours. When it was all said and done, the community bet over a million dollars on the feat."

"Spoiler alert: Jonathan Bales won the $2,000 bet against Peter Christensen and it only took him 11 hours and 5 minutes to complete the 2,400 push ups."

What will they bet on next?
