St. Louis therapy dog makes good on NLCS wager, reps Nationals gear

Friendly wagers are one of the best parts of sports. They’re even more fun when they involve two very good boys.

Thor, a black lab therapy dog from Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, challenged Tabby, a German Shepherd therapy dog at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., to a friendly bet on the Nats-Cardinals NLCS best of seven series. The bet was settled not too long after it began.

Since the Nationals swept the Cardinals, Thor had to wear a Nationals’ bandana to work, courtesy of Tabby.

Sports bets gone haywire- they’re not just for humans!

Washington declined St. Louis's first canine wager offer of sending over Tony LaRussa.

Said Thor of the new clothes: Tabby is dumber than ten Lasordas.

so a sick kid in a children's hospital in St. Louis is a big Cardinals fan and is soothed whenever this dog visits - but now the dog is wearing a bandana celebrating the team that just kicked the ass of the kid's beloved Cardinals.

I could not have imagined a dumber or more annoying "friendly wager" - but this one takes the cake.

"Friendly wagers are one of the best parts of sports." - said no one, ever.
