I've Paid My Debt to the Curmudgeon

I've made good on my bet with the Curmudgeon and gone one better. 

If you recall, we made our annual bet on the LSU-Bama game and LSU did not manage to pull a win out of the Mad Hatter's Hat.  Bama steam rolled the Tigers.

Our bet was for $100 toward the Wounded Warrior Project.

In the "one better" tradition, (last time the bet was for a six pack of Sam Adams and the Curmudgeon went "one better" and paid up $100 to WWP), I've signed up for a monthly donation of $19, which comes to $228 a year.   That's about two six packs of Sam Adams a month; I think I can spare that (and so can my waistline).

Good bet between you two. A better bet than Adrian and I had in 09 with the Saints...he lost ten lunches to me!

@Pat,

God bless you, my friend. You can never know how proud I am of our friendly rivalry that is purpose-driven.

God bless our wounded warriors and all who work so hard to help them.

Until next year!
