The Bet of the Century

Last night Moose and I were at the Cincinnati/South Florida game. We watched the Cincinnati kicker Lovell miss a 47 yard field goal. I of course said that I could make it from there. So either this Wednesday or this Sunday I will be joining Moose at Nippert Stadium to attempt a 47 yard field goal. I get five tries. Of course, odds are encouraged and bets are expected. Frankly the stakes between Moose and I are pretty weak (dinner). I will attempt to videotape the event and post it here, for you, the readers.

Todd, I think the rest of world will clearly fall on the side of "no way in hell you have a chance of kicking a 47 yarder." Vegas simply needs to take this one off the board. Is this like that "bet" from Seinfeld where that guy bet Elaine that Dustin Hoffman was in Star Wars so he could take her out to dinner without asking her out (a "dating loophole," it was called)?

Once you fail at 47 yards 5 times, move it in to PAT distance. Take 5 cracks at that, and move it back 5 yards if you make it. Keep doing it until you can't make one out of 5 at a particular distance. I have serious doubts about even the PAT.

Don't they lock Nippert?

Is there a way to do a webcast of this event. This could be huge. The whole thing would be even better if Nippert is locked.
