West Seattle weekend scene: Making good on Apple Cup bet

One of those days where, as the old saying goes, it’s raining cats and Dawgs. Yes, Dawgs, as in the Apple Cup-victorious University of Washington Huskies … and that win meant Washington State University Cougars fan Conor lost his bet. We found him in Morgan Junction, in the wind and the rain, wasting no time making good on it.

    The Dawg gear is cruel and unusual punishment.

    Gotta honor his integrity. Lesser men may have reneged on that bet.

    And I thought having to fly that darn purple flag for a week hurt. Good for you for living up to your bet! Go Cougs! Let’s get Leach!

    Dumb. Way to go ask other people to pay for your bet. Not funny. Not awesome.

      Could be wrong – my co-publisher’s the one who talked to him – but I think the mere act of standing out there WAS the payoff, with the cup as a prop. – TR

    Three cheers for him! He stood up for his team, and then stood up for his own honor to honor his pledge. We need more men like this one!

    Hey GenHillOne,

    It’s not a bad way to go! Maybe he’ll lose again next year. It’d be nice if we got a little warning next time. ;)

    I am impressed that he payed off the bet. More power to him!

    Go Dawgs.
