Majormet/Dan-o16 Comeau Wager

Hey all,

If you remember Majormet and I had a wager over Blake Comeau's season. Majormet wagered that Comeau would reach 60 points, and I wagered against it. The pot: the loser donates $100 to the charity of the winner's choosing. Since Comeau did not score 60 points and did not miss significant time, Majormet informed me that he has donated $100 to the Brooklyn Autism Center.

Thanks, Majormet, for being a great sport and helping this school in the process.

Cheers,

Dan-o

That's great!!!

60 points is a lot to ask for. Just look at the likes of JT and Matt Duchene barely hitting those numbers.

nicely done Dan-O and majormet!

After the first few games, BOTH Comeau and Bailey looked like 60 point players dammit!

Too bad the season's so long.

Great cause to donate to. I have two autistic kids in my classroom and I love them both to death.

As you know, I donated $100 to BAC because of a wager I lost last year (it was your suggestion to make it autism-related). So maybe, someone else would like to make another wager this next year and we can make it a tradition.

Cheers,

Dan-o

Bravo. There should be more charity "bets" like this. Win-Win, except for someone's pride! (lol)

I dunno, I think there is a fair bit of pride in manning up and donating even when you were WRONG!

Dan-o I would love to have a bet against you next year, but we should wait until the offseason. We could get into a heated argument as well always do

Great bet!

I made the donation, it was a fun payup.

I really thought Comeau would turn it around but as usual too late. In all fairness Mike Bossy doesn't score 60 points, playing alongside Sim, Bailey and Schremp all year, but then again if he played alongside JT, I think JT would be under 50 points LOL, since Blake holds the puck forever until he loses it.

Good job, Dan-0
