Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, David Ortiz, Nats' Tickets, NY Yankees, Orioles, Sox, Washington Nationals, Yunkees
As you can see from the pictures below, I spent an entire Red Sox game last night wearing a Yankee hat.
(Sox defeat Orioles, 10-1)
Because once again I made a bet on the Sox and lost.
A Yankee fan bet me that the “Yunkees” would beat the Sox in a game earlier this year. They did, and thus I was committed to wearing the dumb NYY hat to a Sox game.
So I doubled the bet, saying if the Yankees won the second one of the three game series, I’d wear it twice. The Sox won, and I was free.
But I couldn’t leave well enough alone, and we bet on the third game.
So I ordered the T-shirt you see, and ‘paid up’.
(Early in the game, Ortiz just before he hit a towering HR to center.)
At least I have the T-shirt available for future bets.
Against any team the Sox play.

Last Minute NAT’s Tickets Available
Because of an unforeseen ‘obligation’ — something to do with grand parenting — I have two terrific tickets (fifth row behind the Visitor’s Dugout) available for free to a Nats’ 4:05 game this Saturday, Sept. 19th.
Email me (Samesty84@gmail.com) by Friday the 18th, and you can have the tickets.
First offer goes to anyone who promises to take a kid (broadly defined) to the game.
Second choice will be anyone who has not already been to a game with my tickets this year.
Third choice, anyone else who wants to see the Nats, even if we’ve been to a game together or you’ve used these tickets.

I didn’t see the NAME of the person
Who WON your bet!
All your other ‘contests’ listed the ‘winners’ names….
Maybe some of us want the ofer our congrats
To the winner of the bet while offering our condolences to the loser

That’s a very good point “The Duke”!!!
‘He who was not named’ is the above Commenter Jim Karrigan, a long-time ‘Yunkee’ fan who rarely stops making fun of my heroes (the Sox). I can’t wait until he loses a bet with me and has to wear a Sox hat.
I also ‘forgot’ to credit another ‘Yunkee’ obsessive, one Steven Begleiter, who gladly presented me with a cheap version of the Evil Empire’s head gear.
I like the T-shirt hedge. Maybe Richard in a Yanks cap is just what’s needed to put the Astros, Rangers, & Twins over the wild card hump. The BoSox can still do their part to decide the race. What would be sweeter for ‘haters’ than a slow collapse as the finish line is in sight. However it ends up the best month & a half of baseball starts now!
