The Ham Sandwich Draft Bet

Todd McShay’s latest mock tabs Dez Bryant for the Bengals in what is becoming a rather plausible scenario. I think a lot of teams might be a bit gun-shy in regard to character issues considering the whole Big Ben/Little Elephant scandal in Georgia. That could leave Bryant in the Bengals lap. In his second scenario, McShay gives the Bengals Jermaine Gresham, prompting the soon-to-be infamous ham sandwich bet.

Allow me to explain. It seems that almost every draft “expert” is giving the Bengals Gresham. I think they are all wrong. I have no rational reason to believe this, no inside sources, nothing. Just a hunch that the Bengals will draft someone else. And I’m willing to bet a ham sandwich on this – actually several of them.

Here’s how it works. If the Bengals draft Gresham, I will admit my mistake and eat my words. And you can eat a ham sandwich that I will end in the mail (as long as that complies with current U.S. Postal regulations). If the Bengals don’t draft Gresham, you must write a glowing testimonial about StripeHype, something that seems stolen from one of those late night Ron Popeil or Power Chopper infomercials.

So there’s the bet. Any takers?
