The Bet


The Setting: It’s May 19, 2010.  The Flyers hold a 2-0 series lead over Montreal in the East. In the West, Chicago is up 2-0 over San Jose. Both teams are dominating, and don’t look like they can be stopped. So I send the following e-mail to Jeff Bartl, the man behind the great Blackhawks blog:

If the Flyers and ‘Hawksdon’t choke and do meet in the finals, are you interested in a small wager? I think 2-3 cheesesteaks against a small deep dish pizza would be pretty fair.

His response:

Sounds good to me buddy!

I went to Chicago a few years ago, and I tried their amazing deep dish pizza. Sorry Uno’s, but you don’t come close to what they have to offer. I didn’t do much research, so I ate at Giordano’s. I don’t know if that’s the best or not, but it was damn good. I have been craving this concoction ever since. I’m not an expert, so I don’t know what the key ingrediants are, or the secret to what makes it so good. All I know is that I’m really hoping the Flyers can pull this off so I can get some pizza.

Thanks for reading!
