2005 US Open Winner

Who will win the US Open? Pick your winner! It is being played this weekend. We each get to pick two guys. One at a time though, so you'll pick first, then I'll pick. Then you pick again and then I'll pick.

Loser has to mow the other guys lawn and bring over a 6 pack of beer so the home owner can drink while his lawn is mowed and then enjoy a beer with them afterwards.

What do you think?

Hutton House Selling...

On January 13th, Chris and Melinda placed their house for sale. They originally bought the house for $210,000 on April 17th, 2003. A second loan of $27,000 was taken out on the house on May 18th of 2004. The house is listed for $279,950 and boasts a 1/4 acre lot, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 2 fireplaces.

BET: Will Chris and Melinda sell their homes in under or over 45 days? Alex takes the over, Jesse takes the under. Loser covers the next buy-in of a poker game and has to go all-in after a half-hour of play (to be timed) for three plays in a row or until the bet is called.

Seahawks vs. Rams - Playoff Game

I propose a bet on the winner of the Seattle Seahawks vs St. Louis Rams playoff game this Saturday. The point spread favors Seattle by 4 right now - not sure if you want points or not, but considering that Seattle has lost twice to the Rams this year I think it would be fair to go straight up.

Back to the beer - loser buys winner another selection from Central Market. We haven't tried anything new for a while.
