Chief Mick Mayers (FirehouseZen.com) of nowhere near Philadelphia and I are engaged in a battle over the next four games of the Stanley Cup Final Series. Game 1 is tonight as the Western Conference champion Chicago Blackhawks allow the “come-from-behind” Philadelphia Flyers stay in a locker room for a few hours tonight at the United Center.
Mick is a tad delusional. He has yet to realize that he has been suckered into a bet he cannot win.
When the victorious Blackhawks emerge kissing the Lord Stanley’s Cup and the Philadelphia Flyers are left licking their wounds, Mick will have to post a video of himself singing one of two songs: either the horrific fight song “Here Come The Hawks” or The Fratelli’s “Chelsea’s Dagger”. He will have plenty of time learning the words of the latter as it’s played after each home goal at the Madhouse on Madison.
In order to successfully sucker him into even considering such a task, the beleaguered Mayers has requested I sing Sir Elton’s “Philadelphia Freedom” on video. Even though the chances are slim, the thought of recording such a video is quite unappealing. Don’t visualize here, folks.
Also, the loser shall buy the winner an official 9/11 Commemorative Coin for the winner and suffer a year’s worth of humiliation and yuck-yucks.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy….
