Sucker Bet

Two days ago I got an e-mail from my friend, fellow twin parents and mommyblogger Gidge.

It said this:

So since our respective beloved teams are playing this weekend………wanna make it interesting?
I’m suggesting that whomever loses has to write a post about how great the other one is …BLOG CHALLENGE? UP TO IT?

So of course I jumped on it.

The problem? Her team is the reigning Super Bowl champions The Indianapolis Colts and my team is The Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Her starting quarterback is Peyton Manning. Mine is Jeff Garcia.

Her starting running back is Joseph Addai. Mine is out for the season.

And the game will be played in the RCA Dome. The Colts ALWAYS win at home.

Tampa_Bay_Buccaneers_FlagAnyway – Go Bucs!

I’ll be over here writing my essay about how rad Gidge is. But I’ll be writing it with my fingers crossed.

And I’ll be happy to never have to use it.

Stranger things have happened. I mean – I accidentally made two people at the same time. I lost a contact on my cat. Harlequin NASCAR romance novels exist. The Bucs could win.

But I won’t be holding my breath.

  1. Start writing.

  2. “…Stranger things have happened. I mean – I accidentally made two people at the same time. I lost a contact on my cat. Harlequin NASCAR romance novels exist. The Bucs could win.

    Well, the Lions are 3-1. Sounds like the planets are aligning for a Bucs win.

  3. Hell AMISH Romance Novels Exist.

    That doesn’t mean the Colts won’t eat the Bucs for dinner.

    I think that Jeff Garcia should have to write about how great I am too.

  4. Jeff Garcia will be in no position to write anything after the vaunted Colts D tramples his ass all day Sunday.

  5. Or, you could even win in BBM’s fantasy football league. D’oh! (Yeah, that’s me down in the cellar with you. Hey! Do they have any wine down here?)

  6. Redneck Mommy says:

    I’ll cheer for you. I think you may be slightly delusional, but still, I’ve got your back.

  7. Wait, are you both pre-writing your posts? What happens to the winner’s post, does it just go away?

    Here’s what I think: if the winner has already written a nice, flowery piece about the loser, she should still post it, only substitute the loser’s name with someone else to whom the sentence applies.

    For example, if Gidge writes “I met Sarah in my twin club,” and the Bucs get spanked this weekend, she would post “I met Sarah Becky in my twin club.”

    Or if she writes “Sarah is a poor sucker who accepts ill-advised wagers from friends who get her into trouble,” she would post “Michael Vick is a poor sucker who . . . ”

    Follow me?

    I’d like to see how many, if any, attributes can only be applied to you (or Gidge)(as if).

  8. But you have Jon Gruden. Who left my poor Raiders shortly before it all fell apart for them. I miss Jon Gruden.
