Remember in college when you used to play a drinking game during a show or a movie? Someone would have to drink every time you heard “Rosebud” on It’s a Wonderful Life. Or maybe there was chugging involved when a team scored. Not that I know anything about that. Ahem.
Last night was the Rose Bowl. I’m a Wisconsin girl, so of course I was rooting for the Badgers. Lisa at Mom to Marathon and I got trash talking over on Facebook and ended up with a wager. It started as the winner running, but ended up with this:
Every time the other team scores, we do pushups for every point (i.e. when Oregon scores a touchdown, Erika does seven pushups; if Wisconsin gets a field goal, Lisa does three). To make it more interesting, we will do all the points (when Oregon scores the second touchdown, it’ll be fourteen pushups).
Every time our team loses yardage (sack, penalty etc.) we will do a sit up for each lost yard (fifteen situps for facemask etc.).
The loser will run the difference in the score in the other team’s colors and write about it. Let’s hope it isn’t a blow out! (If Oregon wins 42-30, she’ll run 12 miles in green and yellow)
Did you see the game last night? It was a high scoring game. (The game fell during dinner/bath/bedtime, so Lisa texted me to make sure I didn’t miss any pushups. She’s nice like that.)
The first 7 pushups weren’t so bad. I could even handle 14. 21 put me in the land of the “girly pushup”.
And then the real work began. 28 was doable. 35 may have involved some time spent resting in between.
For 42, I may have folded laundry after each 10. There may also have been cursing. Just sayin’.
45 more? Are you kidding me? Ok, fine. They weren’t pretty, but I got ’em done.
And then I did 8 more. What? Hell if I’m going to do 192 pushups, I’m gonna do 200.
Who’s going to come to my house and feed my today? ‘Cause seriously I can’t lift my arms.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s installment when I run 7 miles in Oregon’s colors. ~cringe~
Damn you, Wisconsin Badgers! ;o)

This is outstanding! (I was rooting for the Badgers too…)
That is too funny!
I watched the game. Huge bummer! I am a Coug (WSU) so I didn't want the Ducks to win. Sorry for your loss:( Have a great run today though!

That is hardcore! What a fun way to wager!
THIS IS HILARIOUS!
What an amazing game! I'm sorry you there was no defense and you lost the bet…I had a bet with Run with Jess (she's a Badger fan too). Check out her post today for ideas of what to wear on your run:) Way to go Ducks!http://www.runwithjess.com/2012/01/2-for-tues-lets-get-this-over-with.html?spref=tw
That's just brutal. Way to step up. Hope there were plenty of recovery beers. Cheers!
Ha ha ha. That's so funny.So how ARE the arms this morning?
What a fantastic idea!! That is a ton of situps and pushups!! Hope you were able to function today =)
Ha! Love it. You may have ended up suffering, but at least you got a workout!
"if I'm going to do 192….I'm going to do 200"YouFreakingRock.
Thank you so much for taking the bet!! You really made that game even more fun for me. We originally were going to have people over for the game, but nobody was available.You are a STUD. I love the fact that you rounded up to an even 200 pushups.
hahahahahaha, too funny.
