Up For Poker's NFL Humiliation Challenge

by Otis

Updated with ongoing results

G-Rob threw down the gauntlet yesterday and decided to put his beloved flipping penny up against Luckbox and BG in picking the NFL games. I decided his methods were far too scientific to properly humiliate the sportsbettting side of UFP. With that said, we offer you this week's UFP NFL Humiliation Challenge.

The players:

Luckbox--Luckbox
BG--Tortured Genius
Penny--Shiny Amercican currency equivalent to one cent -- also, G-Rob's friend
Li'l Otis--Two years old

The Methods

While Luckbox and BG use years of NFL sportsbetting knowledge, G-Rob flipped his friend, and Otis gave his two-year-old the team names for each game. Whatever team name his son spit back out was the pick (witnessed by Mrs. Otis).

The payoff

The next time the four players are in the same city, the loser has to buy the winner (or the winner's proxy) a shot of his choice and a companion shot for the loser to drink as well. The winner also gets to poke the loser in the belly and make the Pillsbury Doughboy noise.
