A man who knows a good deal when he sees one.
Well, somebody's putting their money where their blog is for the upcoming NBA Finals, featuring America's Team
battling the forces of evil. Everybody's favorite blogger and the next Mayor of Los Angeles Tony Pierce
has called me on my belligerent rantings
and possibly sleep-deprived challenge,
putting up an overnight shipment of two whole Zankou chickens
, slow roasted, a nice tub of garlic spread, and a dozen or so pitas against an framed original photograph of Bruce Springsteen's boyhood home
. (I might even throw in one of The Stone Pony
, not that it will have to come to that.)
For those of you out there more interested in more conventional wagers, the current series line has the Lakers at -$900, meaning that you'd have to bet $800 to win $100 if you bet on L.A. The Nets are at +$600 meaning that a $100 bet will get you a whopping $600. Since Vegas doesn't have any equivalent odds in chicken, I guess Tony and I will just have to leave our wager as is.
Update: Ken Layne
and Jeff Jarvis
are also getting caught up in the madness.
