So my blogging buddy Mark Bialczak and I had a virtual pinky bet last weekend, as our alma maters were going head-to-head in a college football game with the loser posting a victorious, smiling photo of the winner.
Being an overly confident ass, I just knew my Iowa Hawkeyes were going to beat some Maryland Terp tail. When my black and yellow outfitted men scored a touchdown due to an interception in the first minutes of the game, my confidence soared.
I had a hunch Mr. Mark wasn’t feeling so peppy after that turnover….
My head swelled to an inconceivable size when Iowa scored a second touchdown within the first quarter making the score 14 to zip, zilch, nada.
But it turns out that we Hawk fans did a victory dance three quarters too soon.
Much to my dismay, those Terps found themselves up 21-14 in the third quarter and at that point, even Mark’s cutie of a puppy, Ellie B. got in on the cheering.
Turns out my hyped up Hawkeyes failed to rally and lost 31-38.
So without further ado, please give a big round of virtual applause to the winners of what will surely be an annual pinky bet, Mark and his dear wife Karen.
Until next year….
[…] besties, Mark Bialczak is a fellow Big Ten fan, who cheers on his Maryland Terps. Last year, we had a bet that whomever’s team lost must be featured on the winner’s blog and ….. here he […]
I would love to have now a moon shine shot and with my fluorite book I will be in totally relax, b.t.w I love the overall of your dad 🙂 !
The overalls rock, don’t they? I’ll save you a moonshine shot AND a Jell-O shot in hopes one day we get to share them together!
Yes they do and yes one day we will meet and have Moonshine and Jell-O shots together !! 🙂 I already will say to you cheers 🙂 !
It’s a date!
Oh, I could never hate you Mr. NYC. Especially when you speak the TRUTH. Iowa super sucks this year. That’s actually how all of the moonshine shenanigans started…we were pitiful years ago and to make the games more interesting, we started doing shots…at least we got a ‘tradition’ out of it!
Don’t hate me for saying this, but Iowa sucks this year. You had better drink a lot more!
Those are some funky coveralls…
I think you meant funny….
That to. I like the colors cause it reminds me of Steelers colors!
[…] yesterday, Kitt Crescendo, author of the cool blog The Inner Wildkat, saw Ellie B.’s picture with me on my friend CBXB’s blog blog and asked about her […]
Feelin’ your pain. I bet on the Niners against the Broncos this week with my foreman. I know, I know, it was a fools errand, but they’re my team. Cost me ten bucks. I’m confident I’ll make it back as we have a bet on the Series and of course I have the much hated Giants. 😉
There you go! Get your money back on the much hated Giants! We can’t ever stray from betting on “our” teams now can we? What kind of fans would we be? Although sometimes I want to divorce my Hawkeyes, we always manage to make up during the week…!
You’ve got to stick with them during those bad years. It make the victories all the sweeter!
[…] can find her post from today, Friday, right here. Yes, it includes her paying off the pinky bet by posting two, count ‘em, two, of my […]
This is why I am always careful about getting a bit too full in the mouth before a game. There’s a reason they’re played despite rankings… 😀 Love Mark’s dog pic…what kind of doggie?
(Sorry girlie….although your pussy’s cute, I’m a sucker for a mutt.)
Ha! His dog Ellie B. is a rescue and I’m not sure of the mix, but I will ask him. I hear you on mutts being adorbs but still, my pussies are handsome felines!
As one who has been the proud parent for both, I completely understand and agree. 🙂
Hey, Kitt, our cutie is a recue mutt who looks to be mostly shepherd. The rest of the mix, they told us hound. We guess lots of other breeds as Ellie B acts differently every day. 🙂 I like to go with Dingo, from Australia, when she escapes the leash and goes on runabout. (See my post coming tomorrow …)
LOL! As long as your dingo isn’t eating any babies, you should be good.
I thought your dog might be a shepherd mix, but I couldn’t quite tell body size from the pic, and my older dog, a shiba inu, has similar markings. 🙂
I need to check out shiba inu. Have I seen photos of your dog on your blog, Kitt?
It’s possible. I’ve done a couple of posts where they were in there. I think I might need to do one on their very different personalities despite being same breed, though. Maybe within the next week. 🙂
I’ll be looking for the post and your cuties, Kitt. 🙂
Annual it is, CBXB. My pleasure to watch with you in different time zones. Wait, Nashville is Central time isn’t it … I’m so confused … must be that lingering thrill of victory.
Yes, next year your Hawkeyes get my Turtles out in corn country, and I’m putting on the big fret already.
Tomorrow we travel to Wisconsin to tangle with the Badgers. Wouldn’t we be doing you guys a favor if … ?!
Yes you’re correct, Nashville is on Central time.
Maybe the Hawkeyes will fare better in basketball?!
Oh those dang Badgers can be sneaky and now that you say…you would be doing us a favor…..!
I think you’ll kick us but good in men’s basketball. Watch out for our women, though, Final Four material!
