What would you do in the name of a bet?

Well, I’ve been thinking about this since I joined up here at Sharskworld and gee! – we get all these comments about teams that win and teams that just loose for some reason or other, not to mention heart sore comments because their teams are not getting the points. I know I’m one of them.

Now I would love to get some comments about this subject and if I know myself there are a lot of them out there. Well, I’m going to tell you mine and let me tell you something, never ever again!

It was during the Super 14 last year. I must admit I’m a challenger and I love to take bets, but then my team must win. This one just went rock bottom downhill!

The bet was if the SHARKS beat the CHEETAHS and the STORMERS beat the BULLS, the Bulls fans has to wear the sharks rugby shirt or the other way around.

First I asked my son if he was in for it and he said just plain no -he is not going to wear a Sharks jersy, so I phoned up another Bulls supporter in Pretoria and asked him if he was keen – of course he said no problem! Well, at the time I really thought the Sharks were going to win but then came the shock and well, you guessed the rest. I must say we were camping at the time and it was dam cold! I didn’t take another jacket but my Sharks one… well it came handy but it was all in a GOEIE GEES as would they say in Afrikaans

I would love to know how many fans had to do something like this and what did you do.

  • Before the S14 Bulls/Sharks final I made a bet with a Bulls friend of mine that whoever loses must put on the other team’s jersey and sing the other team’s song and have it recorded on video so that it remains in evidence for prosperity.

    I had the Sharks shirt ready and could see he was already dreading singing “We are black, we are white” (I had the camera ready with a huge grin on my face) when Habana ran through to score.

    Somewhere there is now a video of me with a piece of paper reading/singing the Bloubul song wearing a way-too-small Bulls jersey :evil:

  • @Charmaine (Comment 6) : I don’t take bets on things I can’t control :) For me, it’s bad enough if the Sharks lose without having any other conditions attached!

  • I am only going to talk about this once. My mate Phil and myself made a bet last year for the first game of the season, Sharks vs Stormers. Loser had to NOT shave until the winning team was kicked out. Phil spent 15 weeks growing a beard which looked terrible by week 4, never mind week 15.

    This year, after many beers, the debate arose as to how we could increase the stakes. Bottom line, loser between Sharks/Stormers in May has to wear an earring for what will be the last month of Super 14… Never mind the 4 weeks of the earring, it’s a piercing that never closes and for eternity, one of us will have that hole!

  • @deanoelsch (Comment 16) : @deanoelsch (Comment 16) : you c i’m not the only one to something like a bet its just put so much excitment into the game and just hanging out if you know what i mean so much fun instead of just watching the game and then just going home to bed, its the memories that count and they stay with you until the end and of course when you get get togethers well the storys that come out of hiding just makes it worth while. A person only lives once so i try and give it my best shot of life.
