    Default On this, the anniversary...

    ...Of my sig bet victory over LoSt, I've got to wonder how the bet stacks up with the all-time greats on this site. Obviously I have a horse in this race, but I think it stacks up pretty well.

    Why, you ask? Well, there are several reasons.

    • I won the bet despite LoSt pulling one of his favorite tricks: making a prediction and then taking a huge step back on that prediction when he's called out. In this case, LoSt said Cyler Sanderson would tech David Taylor. I bet him that this wouldn't happen, and then he stipulated lowering the spread to a major decision. I accepted.
    • Losing the bet brought out the foolish egotism that is so characteristic of our virtual neighbor. In this case, he began spewing outlandish comments like "I was a lot more on the mark then you were as far as the spirit of the bet." I've never been quite sure how that was supposed to work since I won the bet, but such comments are to be expected.
    • A couple weeks later, LoSt himself jumped on the David Taylor bandwagon, stating "The hype is legitimate."
    • Last and most notably, the signature I assigned him was simple, short, and incredibly effective. What was it? "I'm an idiot." The terms of the bet were just 8 days, but that signature has affected every post he has made for the last year! In an act of endearing I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I retaliation, LoSt changed his signature to "Gold is an idiot" immediately after his punishment was over.

    So let us commemorate this anniversary by reminiscing this and other of LoSt's brash outbursts.

    Also, what are some other nominations for best sig bets of all time? I'll nominate the Zapp/Gofer bet of last year, which, after winning, Zapp gave Gofer one of the most viciously cruel sigs I've ever seen at a critical an emotional time: right before NCAA's. I think I physically cringed when I read it. I dare not repeat it here, but perhaps someone else can muster the courage.

    I don't remember the specific bet but it was 3 years ago with the ever infamous poster, "BIG". Whatever the bet was he bet his POST counts against my post counts on the bet. He was defeated soundly and his POST counts dropped to 0 from well above the 5 digit range. He shortly thereafter disappeared from the "other" site, though I have an inkling he is around here somewhere, lurking....

    I think notorious BIG was suspended temp. by the commish for some crappy, over-the-top insult to a female poster. He was allowed to come back, but stayed away in a huff. Good riddance to bad rubbish, IMO Brother Gopher.
