    ChicagoNow Radio Weekly Wager: Alex Loses, Amy And the Internet Win

    user-pic

    So yeah, I hate losing bets. I only bet if I think I'm going to win. So I felt pretty confident going into our most recent Weekly Wager (audio available on wgnradio.com right here). Amy and I both asked our moms, "What's the worst thing I ever did as a kid?" We wrote our answers down in advance to prevent cheating.

    user-pic

    We closed the show on Saturday by calling our mothers! Before the segment, Quigley and I told one another about the worst thing we each did as kids. Then, we called Quigley's Mom, Barb, and my Mom, Vicki, and asked them each what they thought. Much like The Newlywed Game, we each had to match answers with our Mamas. Guess who won? Team Quigley or Team Guth?

    ...more Guth & Quigley than you can shake at stick at in the final segment. What will the Weekly Wager be this week? Who will have to do something ridiculous/insane/cringe-worthy/wicked awesome on video for all of the Web to see? And just what might that ridiculous/insane/cringe-worthy/wicked awesome task-caught-on-video be? You tell us by shooting a tweet to @ChicagoNowRadio with your idea for crazy stuff you want to see the losing host do on video. Just remember to use hashtag #TeamGuth or #TeamQuigley to let us know who you want to see win. (Ahem.)

    On ChicagoNow Radio on WGN 720, Alex Quigley and I have started a new regular feature: Weekly Wager. This week, we are playing fantasy World Cup. We each made our picks from the USA team. The first fantasy USA team to score wins. If Team USA Quigley scores first, I have to make a 90-second video proclaiming Quigley's awesomeness. If Team USA Guth scores first, Quigley has to spend one hour in the Loop in a Philly Flyers jersey and capture it on video.
