Hey Boys,

I have a funny one for you. I was just picking a friend up at the Airport and I had my Bruins jersey on. A little Habs fan comes running over and says there not going to win there not going to win. I say do you want to bet , how much? I say $100 and he looks confused and says yes. I have his business card and he has my cell number. I dont know if he will answer my call my once we crush the Habs tonight. I will keep you posted.

Go Bruins,

Lou.

Very foolish wager IMO

you have no way to make the guy pay, and then if you lose you feel like a fool for paying a guy that likely would not pay you

my two cents

It's only $100..i think it's worth it just for the sake of a good story..kind of interesting to see if the guy will pay.

It is tough enough getting paid from a friend or acquaintance after you win a bet.  On the other hand, a stranger is a whole lot tougher and less likely.  If you do win your bet, get used to his secretary or him constantly reminding you that he is busy or in a meeting, regardless of when you try to get a hold of him.  And that is even if he answers your calls in the first place.

Hey Boys,

I have good news.

I went and collected a $100 bucks from this Habs fan yesterday at Tim Hortons. I have a picture I am going to post as soon as I get the picture off of my phone.

Go Bruins ,

Lou.

Glad you got paid Lou... I still think it was silly to wager with a stranger
