    Sucker bet?

    LOSING BET: Hawk Fan Pays The Price

    Posted on: 12:09 pm, December 17, 2013, by Staff Writer




    An Iowa Hawkeye fan is still paying off his bet on the Iowa vs. Iowa State mens basketball game last Friday.
    We found him in Ankeny on First Street and Delaware Tuesday morning.
    He lost a bet and had to wear a sandwich board that says Im stupid and bet on the Hawks.
    Gabriel Glynn says he and his friend have made bets in the past on ISU and Iowa games but this one is the most painful.
    The hardest part was making the sign. That was probably the most painful part. Its pretty cold out here but that was pretty awful, says Glynn.
    Glynn says if he had won the bet, his Iowa State friend Mark Charter would have had to be out in the cold with an ISU sign instead.

    Interesting fact: Normal people look at that picture and think he is drinking coffee but really, he is using it for spit.

    Yes but I bet his pucker factor was off the charts with about 12 seconds left in the game.

    Ew - my cousins in TX used to spit in Dixie cups & leave them on the side tables at the ranch. My then 2-year old son grabbed one once, said "look, Mommy - juice!", and before I could catch him, drank it. Then promptly vomited it back up. I made my cousin clean up the mess. Served him right!

    I got to shovel "ISU" into my neighbors driveway back in 2000 when Tinsley and Fizer knocked off KU. To be fair, I've also had KU mowed into my lawn on more than one occassion.

    Re: Sucker bet?

    I thought I made a pretty good bet. At halftime of the game, I proposed this,'

    The loser would have to change his Facebook Profile Picture to the logo of the opposite school, and post the final score everyday until his team loses again. So, my buddy now has a ISU logo profile picture, posts the score, and can't stop until the hawks lose again.

    Evil! Now he has to almost hope for the Hawkeyes to lose. I like your style!

    I figured it was to collect change.

    Re: Sucker bet?

    I just couldn't make any bets like this. There is always the chance you would lose and I'm pretty sure if I had to wear a tiger hawk I would get a nasty rash.

    Of course, Mrs. Velo's cousin thought it would be funny to dress up my son in a hawk shirt when he was a toddler and send the pic to me while I was on RAGBRAI. I was contemplating calling child protective services on her.
