Anyone Make any Bets?
Tue Jan 14, 2014 8:04 pm
  • I don't mean the monetary kind. I mean the kind with friends and or coworkers and significant others.

    My woman had been harping on me to bet something on the game after the Digits won Sunday. So I made an offer earlier. If the 'Hawks win, she's required to say "Go 'Hawks" after every conversation she has with every person until the end of Superb Owl Sunday. I'm waiting to see if she accepts.

  • Do you have to say the same about the 49ers if we lose?

  • I'm waiting to see what she wants. It has to be equivalent.

  • I may bet a friend a bottle....after all we kinda destroyed the bottle he bought up on thanksgiving weekend. We were watching the game and talking bout the Niners and Seahawks. And I may ask him if he wants to bet monikers on facebook. If his team wins I change my moniker to Niners, if my team wins, he has to change the moniker to my team. I wonder if he will accept. ???

    What did they decide?

    That's a very interesting bet.

  • I have a bet on Facebook with a few Niner fans that if the Niners lose they change their sidepic to Russell Wilson for a week and vice versa. The caveat this time being that the winner gets to pick the picture that the loser has to use. I pointed out that this is unfair because there are no bad pictures of Wilson while there are quite a few really bad pictures of Kaepernick. Could you imagine having to look at the naked pic, or the turtle love pic or worst of all the bicep pic for a week. I took the bet, of course.

  • So my wife's cousin is a 9er fan, we've been betting a bottle each game the hawks and 9ers have played against each other for 3 plus years. I mean top shelf stuff, didn't start that way but the competition didn't stop on the field. I must say I now have a hella collection of top shelf Tequila.... Expecting to add to that after this Sundays game. :49ersmall:

  • I never bet on my team. But oh my God, the cash I could have raked in this season!

    Friendly bets usually backfire, so forget that too! haha

    I hope they are all exempt employees - if not you are violating federal law if Seattle loses and that could be expensive...... just saying (I still like the bet just pointing this out)

  • I'm having a coworker flying to Vegas tonight, putting $50 on the Seahawks to cover the spread against the 49ers, and $50 on the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl. So, it may seem like I'm a negative Nancy expecting to lose, BUT MY MONEY TELLS THE REAL STORY.

    GO HAWKS!

  • Dman let's do both. But I have my own proposal. A bottle of the winners choosing... within reason... and change the profile on FB. You know in over 3 years I have never changed it so I have stipulations. IF I lose I change it the next day and it is there until the end of the superbowl.
    Deal.
