Did Btrain this afternoon delete the first quoted post shown below? It has mysteriously disappeared from the site, although you can see it in its original form in the quoted portion of my previous messages. Totally lame if he came on here and deleted this message from a little over a week ago.

How about this: I guaranteed Nick Swisher is NOT traded this offseason. I'll put money on it. Let me know if you want in, old man...(re: Daver)


I'll take some of that action. I would not be surprised in the least if Swisher is traded.

Well let me know the stakes and let the games begin

I'll bet you a churro and $5 in Comiskey Cash that Swisher is gone by Opening Day.

I'll take a chocolate churro. Let me know when I can collect. Be glad I'm not an ******* and didn't ask for Jim Beam seats.

It wouldn't surprise me if he did, so far all he has shown is an ability to attempt to insult me.

This is kind of missing the point of your post, but are the chocolate churros good? I've had a strawberry one before and hated it. The regular ones are my favorite.

Is this even a question...it's a churro, it's chocolate. What's not to love??

It's got a chocolaty filling...but dipping it in Chocolate sounds pretty good too. Lets write a letter to Brooks to get that taken care of....he's got nothing better to do!

Never have partaken in the strawberry churro. I'm a vanilla man myself. Gotta have my vanilla churro when I go to the ballpark. (Vanilla was also formerly known as Bavarian Creme for anyone who cares.)

I know I am going to get bashed for saying this but btrain is a great poster but I do think he should come forward...

Hahaha WOW I'm just glad I crossed all of your guys' mind today lol. And I just took a nap til about 9pm, so don't think I was dodging you guys. I'll finally agree with Daver on one thing: an ego this big wouldn't stay quiet for long :tongue:

And of course I'm going to pay up. I thought there was absolutely no shot of him getting traded unless the return was a serious haul. It wasn't, so I guess I'll have to give KW a mulligan for this one for ****ing up my reputation...

So I'm going to buy 3 churros: 2 for you Mr.Brian26 for outdueling me in MLBGM101, and 1 to smash in the face of Daver, Toby Hall/Nick Swisher style, in rememberance of their time here :D:

Well THAT I did feel a little salty about. I remember me saying Swisher wasn't getting shopped, but I "misremembered" guaranteeing that he wouldn't get traded. Then I found it, and then it disappeared somehow. Weird.

I deleted it, not to get out of the bet (I absolutely would have owned up to that), but so I wouldn't have to hear THAT much **** from Daver about it.

But either way, Brian26 is getting paid. Do they have churros at Soxfest? Maybe he'll get them sooner than later? :o:

This is a pretty funny thread. Thank goodness you only bet churros. My buddies always bet dinner at Ruth's Chris. You don't jump into those bets unless you're REALLY sure.

Haha, yeah. Well if it was something ridiculous like that (or Jim Beam seats like Brian mentioned), I might have hesitated a bit before making the bet.

I thought the bet was Churros for the house on Opening Day.......:tongue:

I made a bet with somebody in 2005 that Crede wouldn't hit over .270 that season. Then I got banned, preventing that person from collecting.

Most hilarious thread in ages.

Since "pwned" appeared in print in a piece in The New Yorker a couple months ago, that usually signals that the kids have moved on to some other newly-coined phrase, but whatever it is, it applies.

BadBobby, Daver, Homefish with the banning mention -- everybody, thank you. I am still laughing.

Depending on how drunk I might be on Opening Day, I wouldn't rule it out.
