A Bet Lost

A while back I made a bet with my friend Ashley, who is a Kansas City Chiefs fan (and yet, somehow still my friend).  She bet that Kansas City would beat Oakland.  Of course, I bet on the Raiders.  They were crushing KC in virtually every statistical category.

Then, right before the game, Oakland’s starting quarterback and their star running back, Darren McFadden, were both sidelined with injuries.  Against our backups, the Chiefs prevailed.  I wanted a medical redshirt on the game.  Ashley was having none of it.

So Michaelyn, my lovely girlfriend who would never ever delight in humiliating me, bought me a piece of Chiefs attire to wear in a picture to set for my fb pic for a week. 

I’ll leave it to you to guess which one is presently my facebook pic.

    You should also mention that time the Packers won and you had to buy me dinner. :)

    Third one. It’ll help keep you from being mistaken for an actual Cheifs fan.

    I have so much delight.

    At least it’s a cunning hat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snvVOl6LNwg

    A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he’s not afraid of anything.

    You don’t seem to be very good at this betting thing. You sure you want to play poker with me? *evil grin*

    Such bright, happy colors the Chiefs wear. The Raiders, on the other hand, dress like they’re going to a funeral.
    And they play like it sometimes, too. If Tim Tebow makes a miracle run in the playoffs, it will be the Raiders’ fault.
