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….
