SORRY ABOUT THE ALL CAPS

Hey kids! You know who the Habs play this week? Yes, it's the Washington Capitals and their Unfrozen Caveman Millionaire Hockey Player (tm myfo)! On Tuesday. And on Thursday. With an event like this, we turned to our friend Shmee over at Capital Addiction for some ideas.

The result? A bet! Well, not a "bet" per se. Shmee, fearing the IRS, the FBI, and /or mob reprisals, has deemed it a "predictions contest." We predict the Habs will win. Shmee predicts the Caps will win. Whoever is wrong will be forced to write an epic poem on why the other team has a better player than the other team's best player. Or something like that, we're still working on some details. We're lawyers, so the negotiations are going badly.

Considering we had our asses handed to us the last time we tried this, we need some redemption. If only we could get CapsChick involved too, we could have a three-way! Uh, bet. Three-way bet. Er, predictions contest.

Uh, what if they both win one?

HabsFan29 said...

like I said, there are some details to work out

we'll come up with a tie-breaker formula as complicated as a World Cup group tie-breaker!

Shmee said...

Hmm....we can decide it based on who is closer to goals scored?

I was at least hoping for a Russian hooker pic, but in all honesty, Ovie sort of looks like an ugly Russian hooker. Which is part of why I love him.

it's a long week, Shmee. I've got plenty of Russian hooker pics in the vault

Shmee said...

Its a little ridiculous how excited I am getting about this.

CapsChick said...

Oh, if ONLY!

I was feeling a little hurt that I wasn't asked to join in the fun, you know? Maybe I'll accept your apology. Possibly. If you're really nice.

...of course, in the interest of full disclosure I should probably mention that the Habs really are my second favorite team and any "pro-Habs" post I had to do would not exactly be painful ;)

@CapsChick

You were considered as a worthy candidate for the contest, but sports bigamists, even if one team is the Habs, drive me crazy! (ask Jordi)

With that said, I totally apologise! I'm willing to do the 3-way! (bet)

CapsChick said...

*gasp* You hate me because I love two teams? Fine, I hate the Habs! I do! With your stupid...guy who...and the idiot who is always...being...

Fuck it. I can't do it, I love the Habs - not as much as the Caps, though, so maybe that will drive you a little less crazy? Probably not. It's okay. My dad has tried to disown me three or four hundred times and I'm still in line to inherit a vast estate of old Caps jerseys, so I'll wear you down eventually.

I'd be more than happy to engage in a little 3 way (prediction contest) if you'll still have me, though!

HabsFan29 said...

@CapsChick - I was just inviting you in another comment window:

Well you know what CapsChick, considering this format, we could really do a three-way! (bet)

If Shmee consents, and you are able to post your predictions at 2:30, you're in!


this will be epic!

ovie has a semitic nose

I always thought it looked melted. Like he was asleep and he had his head titled so that the right side of his nose was next to a heater or a candle.

Shmee said...

I have often dreamed of a 3 way. Blogger contest, I mean.

CapsChick said...

2Girls1(Stanley)Cup?

Oh...wow.

I'm not even sure how to respond to that one other than EW.

Or HA! I can't decide.

Don't you mean improve it? I mean, considering the tone you have taken with your blog?

Shmee said...

2Girls1(Stanley)Cup?

I cant stop laughing long enough to be horrified.
