What Would You Do?

This is a hypothetical exercise that is being concieved based purely upon my lack of anything to do at work(because I am so good at what I do that I did it all already… I swear). That and the fact that I think it could be pretty funny. What else do we really got to do, these UFA’s don’t seem to want to create much news. It relies on a simple premise given a set of extreme cir*****stances.

What would you do if your team won the cup in 2005 and……you had dropped a cool 10 million on your team today in Vegas.

Rules:

1. You are NOT married.

I’m not sure what people are going to do with this rule, but i feel it is much more fun than if you are actually married. This also allows the hypothetical, “My wife would never let me lay a bet” situation from arising in anyone’s response.

2. You got the 10 million that you dropped on your boyz from a guy named Lou, who told you as he was handing over the cash that he has amassed a collection of torture devices that would put a museum to shame.

Translation: Not only has your team just won the Stanley cup, but you can now pay Lou back and not have to get a personal tour of his museum of horror. As happy as you would normally be if your team won the cup, and you’d won money… multiply it by 10-fold.

3. You are operating under the current odds that I lifted from somewhere on the internet. This bet is getting placed today. If you are a Caps fan, man is next spring gonna be a good time in this hypothetical future.

(won’t let me space these for some reason, apologies.)

4. Be creative and humorous. I’m not posting my own thoughts on this because I want to think about it a little before I throw what I would do down in black and white.

never mind the bullox,
