Chubbs from Happy Gilmore has a Connection to Rocky Balboa

This is going to sound crazy, but remember when Adam Sandler was actually funny?  I don't know if it's because the collective conscious of the United States just had the sense of humor of 15-year-olds during the 90s, or if Sandler was legitimately funny.  All I know is that Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore will forever be two of my favorite comedies. It's hard to decide which is the better of the two, but ultimately, I have to give the nod to Happy Gilmore.

Adam Sandler's sport comedy about a hockey player turned golf player has just the right balance of slap-stick humor, fun but not overbearing romance and Ben Stiller.  Even more impressive is the fact that potty humor is kept to a minimum (by Adam Sandler standards, that is).  Of course Happy wouldn't have made it very far on his journey to winning his grandmothers house back through playing golf if it wasn't for this guy:

That fine specimen you are looking at is Chubbs, the former pro-golfer whose career was cut short when some jerk aligator took one of his hands.  The kindly old man takes Happy under his handless wing to teach him the finer points of the game.  Happy looks at Chubbs as a father, he trusts him and admires him.

But should he?

I submit that Chubbs is not who he says he is.

First of all, for a man who lost a hand to a gator, don't you find it out that he wears so much Lacoste apparel?  I mean, every piece of Lacoste clothing has a gator emblazoned on the left side.

A Lacoste polo AND cardigan.  


The picture above is a bit grainy, but take a look at Chubbs' arm.  Notice the bulge at the tip where his wrist should be?  It looks an awful lot like a hand.  But what could Chubbs be hiding? What if I told you that Chuubs was also a transportual just like Happy Gilmore?  What if I told you that, in another life, Chubbs was actually a boxer?  This boxer in fact:

That's right, I think Chubbs is actually disgraced boxer, Apollo Creed, who clearly faked his death when he saw he was losing to ivan Drago.  He then moved to a new town and masqueraded as a pro-golfer.

Okay, so my theory is crap when you scrutinize it.  Really the only evidence I have is that both Chubbs and Apollo creed were played by Carl Weathers.  But still it gives you something to think about.  Also, I still can't believe that this guy
