I don't own a Seahawks jersey so it's on him to provide one for me.


I think the consensus among the forum was that Keyser did in fact welch on a bet with Mission, and in fact his name has been used in this context in the past. I don't feel bad about it nor do I believe I violated any forum rules. But that's not for me to determine, of course.

Please forgive AcesandEights. He knows not what he does. I am told though he is a big fan of Monty Python and you were instrumentally involved in giving him his first taste of the BBC. And to this day he cant get enough of it.

I think you are good. If they don't want to collect, that's up to them.

I'd also like to point out (as I've pointed out before) that when AcesAndEights lost the safety bet to me he contacted me right away (before the game was over) to pay up, and paid me as soon as I gave him the required info. No delays at all.

I have no idea what happened between Keyser and Mission. Can someone send me a link to the thread?



Keyser suggested that Romney winning the last election was a shoe in. Some one asked them if they wanted to stake money, giving terms and amounts. Keyser responded in a way that read to may as 'yes, you are on'. Obama won, Keyser claimed it was not an acceptance of a bet at all. Many people called him out on it. EvenBob rode to his defence. Much debate was had, and the bet was accepted as never being on by both sides. Others have different opinions.

I now try to ensure that both sides have acknowledged bets in private and in public when made. I have not had any trouble with the two posters I have had friendly wagers with.

AcesAndEights,

I think we should just buy you a puppy so that you can get the attention that you feel you need.

Grow up ;)

By the way, I don't feel as though I'm violating any of the forum rules if I call you an attention whore. However, I won't call you an attention whore, since I can't get away with as much as you can on the forum. ;)


I don't think this thread was attention-whoring at all. I have a legitimate, gambling-related question, so I figured I would post it here since we have plenty of folks who have made similar prop bets in the course of their life.

That is probably a good idea. I have not had problems with my 2 bets either.

By the way, does anyone know what Larry is talking about? Is this a joke that has gone completely over my head?

I'm aware of their original derivations. Now I understand what you are talking about.
