Help with a wager

I know someone in Canada who wants to wager on the US/Canada game. Of course, I am hoping the US will win, but they are underdogs, and rightfully so. Here's the bet:

Canada wins: I buy him a Phaneuf Maple Leafs jersey

US wins: He buys me a Joe $$$$ USA jersey

If a gun was to my head, I would pick Canada to win. But I'm so tempted....but I shouldn't do this, should I?

If they don't you can bet that the entirety of the Canadian population of this message board is going to blame Joe somehow.

I kind of hope Canada does win so we don't have to hear more Joe hate

If the money is not a big deal, then go for it. I think I'd still ask for odds though!

yeah, you need odds.

Like, if Canada wins you buy him a Phaneuf t shirt and you get the Joe $$$ jersey

Yeah, definitely get some odds. Have him spot you a goal differential. Something like if Canada doesn't win by >2 goals, then he wins. If they win by 2 goals or less, you win.

Leafs t-shirt / Pavs USA jersey is a safer bet.

you should put a wager on who finishes higher at the end of the tournament. Don't put a bet on a meaningless pool play game.

Canada is playing in their outhouse.
So it┤s going to be a tough one.
But against Switzerland they played like ****.
So do it.

I wouldn't, because the Shark's line can probably shut down Pavs' line, who were the best in their game as well, and Parise hasn't looks very impressive yet.

But yeah. I think you should modify the bet so it isn't win/lose that decides the results.

Only if his jersey is a replica and yours authentic.

You post rarely, but your replies are wise and sage advice. I second this motion - and for the sake of national pride I say go for it.

There's no way in hell I would make a bet like this if I had to buy the other guy an authentic jersey, and all I could win is a replica.

Either make the bet for replica jerseys, or authentics ... but he should definitely spot you at least a pair of goals I would say.
