    Friendly wager involving the Steelers......

    My brother in-law, who is a big Colts fan, & I have bet on this years upcomming Colts/Steelers match-up. The loser has to wear the other teams apparel at our yearly Memorial Day party next year & to the next Steelers/Colts game that we will attend when it's in Indy.

    I don't want to be too sure of myself, but I'm extremely confindent the Steelers can win this game easily. Peyton will be playing against the elements rather than the nice, climate controlled environment that he is accustomed to. And Peyton sucks against a 3-4 D.

    If I end up losing this bet, it will kill me to have to wear Colts gear!! I would rather buy my brother in-law lunch every week for the rest of my life.

    Has anyone done any wagers similiar to this in the past that they care to share?

    I COULDN't, I repeat COULDN't wear another team's colors. I don't even wear the color orange period...EVER. I feel great that the Steelers can and will win this game, but you don't know what could be going on with the team at that time. What if (God Forbid) BR7 is out for the season or something? I wouldn't do it.

    This bet was proposed to me & I couldn't back down. This game will bring out the same sort of nervousness that I get for a playoff game. If I lose, I will have a few months to prepare myself before paying up. It won't be easy, lots of alcohol will be involved before I have to suit up, & I will take the longest shower of my life when I'm through.

    But, if I win. I will have an enormous amount of joy seeing my brother in-law wearing Black & Gold.

    Oz, this is always a tough bet.... Moreso than if money were involved, if you ask me... But being that we have Indy at home, outdoors, in November, after Pitt plays there the day before, could work to your favor.

    Yes, I have done this same similar bet with Brenda as well as one of her friends in the past. Luckily, I have won, and they had to wear Steeler garb out in public for an entire day (including to work)... Unfortunately, the year before last, I lost a bet because Cincy beat us. I had to wear a Bungle jersey in public. And had to do so during our victory over the Colts in the playoffs... Man, there were Steeler fans HATING me! Teasing me and taking pictures for proof! It was the worst day of my life, and no amount of alcohol was able to wash away the pain that afternoon. Nor soap to get me clean enough after feeling "dirty" that evening...

    Now a good story is this: A local bartender and I had a bet for the wildcard game against Cincy, and I won... During the Super Bowl, she had to wear my #7 jersey, ball cap, and a TT draped from her waist!.... When many of the regulars came in for the game, they were astonished that she was black-n-gold from head to toe. They teased her, and threatened her to never take her to a game again (all in fun, of course)... .... She also said that her tips suffered that day, and has refused to bet me again since then...

    ...My only other comment, is that if it is done with good natured intentions, it can be fun. You can always wear Steeler accesories (cap, towel) and get so dramatic about it that everyone enjoys a good laugh. Which is what it is all about anyway.

    I agree with you about this being more of a tough bet than $$. We are betting our pride which is priceless. We both do a good job of running our yappers about how good our teams are & everyone that knows us, knows where our allegiences lie......
