The Bet: Burgundy Wave and Crown Town Soccer Take On Super Bowl 50

Yep, we write soccer stuff. But Throwball is cool on occasion too.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

OK.  You probably all know that the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers are playing in Super Bowl 50 Throwball Championship.  It is poised to be a pretty good game as the Broncos will be looking to win their third championship while the Panthers are after their first.

So why talk about this here on Burgundy Wave a Colorado Rapids blog?

Well, our friends at Crown Town Soccer, who provide excellent coverage of Charlotte Independence, approached me for a friendly wager to get into the spirit of the big game.  I don't know all that much about the game and who plays for each team, so I probably should not do this.

But how could I refuse?  So here is the wager:

If the Denver Broncos win, Crown Town Soccer will send Burgundy Wave:

1)  Independence Scarves

2)  One of their contributors will shave a "B and W" into his beard.

3)  A beverage to be named later

If the Carolina Panthers win, Burgundy Wave will send Crown Town Soccer:

1)  The Managing Editor (me) will shave his head bald

2)  The Managing Editor (me) will wear a Carolina Panthers shirt at work

3)  A beverage to be named later

Obviously this is all in good fun and I look forward to holding up my end of the bargain should the unexpected happen.  But let's be honest, Denver is going to win.

I hope.

Cause no one wants to see me bald
