A lot of people will do some over exaggerating these next few days about the legend of Roy Halladay. I am not one of those people. I am also not a dumbass, and will not even come close to saying Roy Halladay is a mortal pitcher.
I think you all know how great Roy Halladay is. He is so great, he became the focus of one of the most ludicrous bets I have ever made. Allow me to set the stage...
I am at a local watering hole the night of Roy Halladay's perfect game earlier this year. The bartenders at said watering hole have a propensity to get me as fucked up as humanly possible all in hopes of embarrassing me and making fun of me for the next 6 months. (They succeed every time I go to that place).
Roy Halladay is in his 9th inning on the hill with the perfect game still in tact. From what I can tell I am into roughly my 20th Jameson shot. Feeling a great rush of overconfidence and the ever surging man love for Doc growing in my loins I decide this is the perfect time for a bet. I turn to my side and infrequent commenter, frequent Doug Glanville lover, Chris is willing to accept my terms. The bet was made, if Roy "Doc" Halladay throws another no hitter this year I will win.
What do I win you may ask? A large sum of money? More free shots?
Well, I don't fucking remember (please note, my memory was failing I was on roughly #20 of the Jameson shots. I'm not Jimmy McNaulty!)
Flash forward to minutes ago (I'm bringing this post to you like an episode of The Event. Wait, no one watched The Event, shit) Halladay completes the no hitter and I throw my arms up in triumph. I've won the bet that caused me much ridicule over the past few months. Allow the haters to hate, all I do is win!
I then call Chris to gloat about my victory. To my dismay, he PROTESTS! See Chris feels that our bet only lasts through the regular season. As he recants, "The terms of the bet were that he would not throw another no hitter, this season (emphasis on season)". Chris unwisely believes that the post season somehow does not count as apart of the 2010 season. Bullocks! This is a poor man grasping at straws!
I need your help. We need an arbiter for this bet (I'm not sure if Cooly was there or not). I need the help of the masses to persuade Chris to accept his fate and either pay me massive amounts of money or buy me massive amounts of alcohol. (Also, I know he remembers the terms of the bet, however he is claiming to have forgotten them, MORE BULLOCKS!!!!)
