The Slice

Theoretical beers and betting on sports

Because of losing sports bets, I have owed one of my colleagues, a hard-drinking page designer, several beers for years now.

We kept sort of a loose, running tab. No actual beers were exchanged.

But the other day I proposed that we go double or nothing on a Thursday night college basketball game. Had I lost, I would have owed him, well, I'm not really sure how many beers. Quite a few.

Alas, my team won. So I am out from under that crushing debt.

Will I quit while I am ahead? We'll see.

Have you ever had an ongoing wager that never really resulted in anyone being paid -- at least not in any traditional sense?

Sort of reminds me of Bitcoin.
