The time is here and there is no better way for the forum to get involved with the Morgan Cup 3.0 then to place some FRIENDLY wagers. Maybe you see a match that could be an upset you want to ride, maybe it is your favorite team, or maybe you just want to go against the grain. Whatever it may be, this is the thread to challenge your fellow THP'rs!

Of course there are some rules, they are short and sweet:
since there is a lot of wager talk, I want you guys to please respect one side of it if you could. All wagers must be of the fun THP variety. Avatars, signatures, things on the forum. Any wagers containing monetary value such as cash or equipment should not be part of this or put on the forum. Thanks.
Also, Morgan Cup participants are not allowed to make wagers.

For anyone not sure what to wager, please look back on these threads for some ideas:
2011 Wager Thread
2012 Wager Thread

Here are the teams and participants if you haven't picked a favorite yet or need to reference:

I am going to start the wager with a four-way challenge to those interested. I am putting my bet on Team Paradise to win the Cup. I need three other people in the bet to each select one of the remaining teams.

Here is my wager: the three people who lost the bet have to do a hot sauce review ON VIDEO. (JR will approve an appropriate hot sauce to hopefully keep anyone out of the hospital :D)

Bet on who gives out the most "Good Shot" comments in a given match.

LOL...that is awesome! I'm so glad Dan ended up not taking that option on the bet last year. But this will be great!

If only we were allowed to bet. That round is going to be so much fun. I will need to remind myself I am there to beat you to a pulp in between the laughter.

I'll take your hot sauce bet, and I will go with Team Hackers which is really just a shot in the dark, but they do have people who have one it before. I might have to recruit JeffReedMO if I lose since I'm not sure how to post a video on this site.

I think too many THPers have seen you play to fall for that bs.

He's not kidding....the Callaway equipment is killing his game thus far. He lost 20 yards on his drives using that driver now. From 360yds to 340yds.

But he is straighter now.
