Settling our wagers while tackling the top issues of the day

Last week, yours truly picked the Pats to beat the Jets by 22 points.  The folks at took issue with that piece of prognostication (they probably called it a piece of something else entirely), and they issued a challenge.

If the Pats covered the 22-point “spread,” they would have apologized, or something, for whatever it is they said about me.  If the Jets didn’t lose by 22 or more — or if they won (and, of course, they did by 14 . . . nice game, Pretty Boy), I’d wear a Jets jersey for a PFT Daily segment. 

And so I did, borrowing Joe Brocato’s vintage Wayne Chrebet jersey.  I also invited the guy who correctly picked the Jets to win, Rosenthal, to join me for a discussion regarding Mike Vick, Vince Young, and Braylon Edwards.

    Hard to believe PFT employs two guys smaller than Wayne Chrebet, but it’s true.

    Okay, I watched all the way till the end. Where’s the link for my free subscription? Anyway, what are the odds that Braylon misses his first court date because he drops the summons?

    I owe Rosenthal an apology, I made fun of him for looking like a 12 year old, but dude looks at least 15, sorry g

    Greg should have wore a Jets tie

    I knew Brocato would have a Chrebet jersey, although as I mentioned in the original post, a Favre jersey may be more appropriate for the loser of a bet. You should have to win a bet to get the Chrebet jersey!

    So what kind of wager do you want to make with me to wear a Cutler jersey next week? Or better yet, a Favre packers jersey.

    Wow, I can honestly say I am immpressed that you held up your end of it.

    You had to borrow a jersey? What a tool. You should have bought a Braylon Edwards jersey at retail price and done the piece while working an adult beverage. Are you sure you’re Italian?

    A 22 point spread? A 22 Point Spread?? A 22 POINT SPREAD??? Don’t ever, ever, let this guy get anywhere near a bookie…

    Looks like George Stephenapolous and the actor from The Office talking about football.
