One Doozy of a World Series Bet

  • 12 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols


From ABC News via State 38:

Rep. Tom Tancredo wants to go all in. He’s batting for the fences. He’s a Rockies fan, he’s from Colorado, they’re in the World Series against the Red Sox, darnit… He’s on a roll.

So Tancredo, who had already pegged an announcement on whether he’ll run for reelection to his Littleton, CO Congressional seat to the Rockies — he’d announce his intentions when their season ends — had his spokesman call ABC News to officially offer a friendly little high stakes wager to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a Red Sox fan.

“If the Rockies lose, Tancredo will drop out of the Presidential race,” said spokesman Alan Moore. But if. . . IF the Red Sox lose, Moore went on, “Romney would have to agree that he’d drop out.”

Usually when politicians bet on sporting events its for food. Boston Baked Beans versus some Silver Bullet smooth Coors, or something else from Colorado. A Denver omelet?

Romney would be nuts to take the bet, obviously. So while there is no official response yet from team Romney, with Mitt’s enormous campaign war chest and status in the polls among the GOP frontrunners, he’s got a bit more to lose than Tancredo, who raised less than a million dollars in the most recent financial quarter.

  1.   So THIS is how he’s going to try to gracefully drop out of the prez and run for re-election in C.D. 6!  If the Rockies lose, he’ll hold a press conference, announce that since he’s a man of his word (yeah, right!), he has to drop out, and blame our team.
      Let’s go Rockies!  Don’t let him off that easy!
