Every now and again, however, when I feel it's a sure thing, I do indulge myself in the occasional non-lucre style wager.
So do some of my pals...
My friend, David Lynch, an F-15 pilot in the U.S. Air Force is no fan of the Red Sox (I know, weird, huh?).
So he wanted to bet.
The wager was simple: should the Red Sox lose the ALCS I was to become a *Miami Dolphins fan for the day (ouch!).
On the flip-side, if Boston made it to the Series Dave would become an instant Red Sox fan for a day (double ouch! for him).
Now, he's usually pretty accurate when it comes to flying that jet and training those weapons systems on his enemy. However, last night his foe had slightly better aim and a little bit more explosive battering power...
...and so, as a result, I present to you the latest Boston Red Sox super fan!
U.S.A.F. Major David L. Lynch - F-15 Pilot - Red Sox Fan!
Way to go, Dave, we knew you'd come around sooner or later! Looks good in red, too, don't you think?
p.s. - please don't bomb Hyde Park in Austin...
