Just Win, Baby

Just Win BabyI had a good chuckle this morning when the San Diego CW6 News morning team of Marc Bailey and Heather Myers were forced to wear Raider colors during the broadcast. This is what happened after they bet weatherman C. S. Keys that their San Diego Chargers would beat his (my) Oakland Raiders last night.

Back in the day I used to do “jersey bets” all the time. I’d go head to head with someone in the office. Whoever lost had to not only wear the other team’s jersey for the whole day, but they got their picture taken and the photo was sent via email to the entire office. A number of coworkers had their picture taken with my Raiders jersey, and there may or may not be a pic of me wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey. I won’t admit to it.

QUESTION: Have you ever done a jersey bet or something similar? If so, how did it go?

The Raiders lost to the Cleveland Browns? he he he
The closest I've come is our blog challenges here. Living in Maine there aren't many people around willing to bet against the local teams, and when I was in the Corps we had to wear just one uniform at the office. LOL

I did one with one of our lawyers back in the 90's when the Pack played the Niners in a playoff game. He wore the Packer jersey all day during one of our Marine Corps Ball fund raiser car washes.

I just did one last year for the Packer/Bears NFC Championship game. He wore the jersey all day, even to meetings, but he made sure he also wore his Bears lanyard. I have a pic that I've posted before on FB, but I don't know how to post it here.
