Now, for me, a Phillies-Rays series looked like it had no interest to me what-so-ever. Sure, the Rays are a nice story and the Phillies played solid baseball throughout the year. Still, I have no vested interests in either team and really couldn't have cared which team won it all.... That is, untill a few days ago.
Last week, when the Phillies won it all, I remember seeing Rob S., our good friend and WCBN Sports Director, in class following the Phillies/LA game. He was in high spirits, lo
oking a little weary in class the next morning having just celebrated a Phillies WS berth the previous night. I remember thinking "Man, I should have made a World Series bet with h
im this year. It'd at least keep me interested."
Well, as it turns out, I already had!
Last Spring, Rob did a Live Blog for the Sixers/Pistons first round playoff series. The Pistons were up big, on their way to another disappointment in the Eastern Coneference Finals, so
I thought I'd spice things up a bit with this bet:
If the Phillies win the Series this year, can we get you to sport the Dalembert 'hawk, and have "RS" on one/both sides of the head?
Rob took the bet, thinking he was in the clear. Heck, no Philly team has won professional sports championship is his lifetime. Why start now?
Now, the liklihood of Rob sticking to this bet isn't good; A Dalembert hawk during autumn in Michigan doesn't do much to keep a guy warm. Therefore, I want to get all the readers out there to help me find a new wager to take the place of the old one.
(Keep in mind, if Rob wants to keep the old bet, I'll let him. This is just a contingency plan)
So what should the alternative wager be? Leave your suggestions in the Comments area and the winner will be revealed this Friday during the Game of the Week at 7pm on WCBN 88.3 FM.
