I’ll start off with the bad news. The Eagles lost. Very sad, it would have been cool if they’d gotten into the Super Bowl. I also technically bet my first born child (and lost) with a friend of mine from law school. Luckily I don’t think my friend will make me pay up.
The good news is that I also won a bet. While at the beach this morning with sub and his girlfriend, sub and I agreed to bet on the Eagles game at 3.5 points. I took the Cardinals and the points as an emotional hedge (being from Philly and all). The bet? 1 trillion Zimbabwe dollars payable in actual Zimbabwe currency. After the Cards went up something like 24-6, sub bought out for 100 billion Zimbabwe dollars. That means he bought out for like 3 bucks on a 30 dollar bet. I was cool with it though — I just wanted to lock up some actual Zimbabwe currency. I couldn’t possibly care less about the actual value of it. Anyway, I now have this fine bill on its way (thanks eBay) to my house:
It turns out that, with the eBay premium and shipping, sub actually lost $9.81. Ship it.
