    Need help on a Bet

    A friend of mine has been talking alot of crap about the ISU-Iowa game and we wanted to make a bet. She decided that I had to get an Iowa tattoo somewhere on my body if ISU lost. I can't think of anything that she would have to do in return (she hates tattoos so that is out for her).

    if you take this bet... you're an idiot... don't make that high of stakes on a game we're supposed to lose... put down the kool-aid

    There is no way I would take that bet. There is nothing I would do if it meant I had to get a Hawkeye tattoo.

    Re: Need help on a Bet

    I wouldn't take that bet either. I think ISU has a good chance in that game, but that **** is permanent. Make it a henna tattoo or something. As far as her side of the bet.....I can't come up with anything other than the obvious.

    Re: Need help on a Bet

    well..........you have to be able to weight the risk reward. You could also be a little sleazy and somehow find a loophole. Like if she said you had to get an "Iowa" tattoo then there would be a lot of tattoos you could get that refer to Iowa except not necessarily the Hawks. What I would do is set up what she has to do if she loses first and see where you stand. I mean if she doesn't lose anything don't make the bet. But if you could get her to agree to get a State tattoo, if she really hates them, then maybe do it and work out the loophole later. Man I am a dick.

    Also, I've been drinking the Kool-aid since I was in the womb. Gotta love my parents for raising me right and being the biggest Cyclone fans in the state.

    Re: Need help on a Bet

    Not a fair bet. ISU changes their logo every decade. So her tattoo "for life" will actually only be good for a few years.

    If you lose at least have the hock thing tattooed vertically so if anyone asks... you just really really like fred flintstone.

    So she is going to make you get a tattoo but refuses to get one herself? That is a really dumb bet. She can't requre something permanent and then do nothing comparable for her side.
    If you do end up getting it, I guess you could have them tattoo Calvin taking a wizz on the Tiger Hawk.

    Re: Need help on a Bet

    2 years ago a good buddy of mine made a bet with me. He went to Iowa Dental School and is a dentist now. If Iowa won, I had to take him on an all expense paid trip to Vegas. If ISU won he had to make me a gold and small diamond removable grill for my teeth.
    ISU won, and he has said many times for me to come and get it done, I just haven't thought about it much/had the time.
    Now that's a unique bet.

    If you DO take the bet, you have to go by spread.



    I'm not sure your relationship with her, so......I can't really tell you what to ask in return
