When Good Girls Go Bad

Back on September 23, 2006, I took a dare and made this very, very poor decision:
"I haven’t been very optimistic about this team all summer and I’m getting more negative all the time. But a few people have called me on my bitching, so now I’ve made a new bet... Anyway, I hereby agree to get this tattoo IF Luongo can actually play over .500 hockey by mid-season. If he’s winning more than he’s losing by game #42 in January (Luongo, not the Canucks), I’ll do it.
And then things went horribly wrong -- Yo! Luongo actually won a few extra games despite the Canucks' anemic offense. He is currently 4 games over .500, and with only 3 games remaining till the mid-season mark at #41, I am now officially screwed. A tattoo is heading my way in the near future. I've taken some good-natured abuse for this idiot bet (and no doubt, there's more to come) but I'd still like it remembered that I was very close to winning it! (Oh lordy, I keep telling myself this but it doesn't seem to help...) Anyway, I'll keep you updated. Photographic proof will be provided once I have the tattoo done in a nice, G-Rated location.
