RC Loses Yet Another Wager! by Tom Moss, Guest Contributor
"I only bet on a sure thing," declares my pal, RC, whenever I mention a wager. And, he means it. A principle he has always lived by. But all bets have risk no matter how good of a "sure thing," even for him.
"No way!" he insisted. "They may not make the playoffs this year but they will do alright,"
"The ponies will lose ten games this year" I retorted, "wanna bet?"
"They are bound to," I said, "look at their offensive line and the first year coach doesn't even know which of three quarterbacks to use."
"Well, what am I in for this time?"
"Hmmmm, Let's see now. I know, how 'bout grabbing a skateboard and moseying over to Elway Park in your long johns. Join all those school-skipping, pants sagging teenage boarders for a fun afternoon?" I mused.
"Oh, man. I haven't been on a skateboard since I was fourteen... a long time ago. I'll break my neck. Besides, where am I going to get a skateboard?"
"You'll figure something out."
Bravely dressed in his union suit and tennis shoes, a skateboard tucked under his arm, and accompanied by a half dozen friends, RC headed for the park. A perfect sun-drenched day found my friend once again settling a "sure thing" wager in his underwear!

Bailey of Grand Rapids, MI emailed me with this photo and note: "It seems that RC is not the only guy to skateboard in his long underwear. Check out this kid in his red union suit and ready to jump on his skateboard. This looks like fun. I think I will try it."
Bailey: You try it! Then send me your skateboard photo(s) and I will post along with these dudes! ....Chris
