A Bet is a Bet

I am looking forward to getting my copy of John Wilsey's new book, American Exceptionalism and Civil Religion: Reassessing the History of an Idea.  John teaches history and philosophy at Southwestern Theological Seminary in Houston, Texas and is the author of One Nation Under God?: An Evangelical Critique of Christian America.

A couple of weeks ago I engaged John in a bet on the outcome of the United States division of the Little League World Series.  John lives in Pearland, Texas.  I live in Mechanicsburg, PA, only a few miles from Red Land.

Here was the bet:  If Pearland won the U.S. championship I would buy a Pearland Little League t-shirt and wear it every Saturday for a month.  If Red Land won, he would do the same with a Red Land t-shirt.

Needless to say, I won the bet.

John posted this to twitter today:

This is a man who can keep a bet.  Looking good, John.  GO REDLAND!
