Fellow bloggers and hockey fanatics, @According2Jewls and @TheSimpleDude, and I decided to make a wager on this abbreviated NHL season. If you’re a sports fan you might be familiar with the kind of bets you often see made by the mayors from cities with teams playing in championship games, like the World Series in baseball or the Super Bowl in football. If you’re not a sports fan, the bet usually goes like this: each mayor proposes a prize package of items (often food) unique to his/her city and whichever city’s team loses must then send the prize to the winning mayor.
It’s not a secret that I’m a big St. Louis Blues hockey fan, and as it turns out, Jewels is a lifelong Philadelphia Flyers fan. The Simple Dude, hailing from the frozen north (Minneapolis and thereabouts) brings the Minnesota Wild into the mix, and so we’ve agreed that of the three teams, whichever finishes this season with the best record will be declared Winner, and the other two bloggers will be Losers, and be required to send a prize to the winner. I’m not saying it has to be food, but I when I win I will take Philly Cheesesteaks and a Juicy Lucy. Thank you.
GO BLUES! Long Live the Note!
