View Full Version : Avatar Bet-- Houston vs. Dallas

About 2 years ago, I asked many of you fine gentlemen and ladies for a game of Avatar Bets for the Texans @ Cowboys pre-season game of 2005. Like I expected, most declined, proclaiming come back when we play for real.

Well, the pivotal week is upon us-- Texans @ Cowboys, Round 2. Many of you state the Texan's will beat the Cowboys through pure emotion and mental toughness, others believe the key to victory is putting the rush on Bledsoe. Who's ready for a little Texas gamble to spice up the already coveted game? Now's the time to put the money where your mouths at.

The rules for an avatar bet are quite simple. If you so choose to join in, your Texan avatar is put on the stake, along with mine as well. If the Texans lose, you're required to wear the Star of the Cowboys for one week, if the Cowboys lose, I'll handicap (considering an Arena Football team could beat the Texans), I'll wear the Texan avatar for 6 months (one year if I get 20 takers).

And please, for the sake of this thread, don't give some excuse like "I could never wear the Cowboy Star" as it's obvious to read into what's the true meaning behind that.

Thunderkyss, you don't think 6-months compared to one week is enough? I'd say the Cowboys beat Texans 1/2 odds, Texans beat Cowboys in 6/1. (Don't know if I got it the other way around.)

Just to make it a little more interesting, If the Texans win and they get a sack on the QB, then you would have to have that picture as your Avatar.

And if Dallas wins, and sacks our quarterback, then I would put that picture as my Avatar.

I must say, I am quite impressed with the showing of takers in this gamble of epic proportions. Though our teams may differ, we show a common unity resemblant of the undying Texas spirit of never backing down from a challenge, with a watchful eye to the future. Let us have an injury-free meeting this weekend, and solid performances out of both teams.

By the way, the "The End is Near" picture is really neat if I do say so myself. Even if it does have Cowboys on there.

And you can ask our kick/punt returner. You know, that guy that went to the Pro Bowl. He went to Hampton University so I DAMN well know that he knows the deal up in here.

Does everyone see now why avatar bets are sucker bets? We have ONE Dallas fan making an avatar bet with DOZENS of Texan fans. Texans Win!! Big deal:yawn: , we would have one Dallas fan wearing a Texan logo. Moreover, if Houston would have won, said Dallas fan with Texan logo would probably not be making too many trips over here posting.

But as it is, we now have dozens of Stars to remind us all of the loss. Consider the ratio when making sucker bets in the future.
