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!

Nationals vs. Cardinals: Washington or St. Louis? How each city stacks up

The Nationals finally won a postseason series. The Cardinals are vying for their 20th World Series appearance in franchise history.

The only other time these two teams have faced off in the postseason, the Nationals blew a 6-0 third-inning lead and the Cardinals used a four-run ninth inning to end Washington’s season.

But that was 2012, and this Nationals team has already overcome major adversity and advanced further into the postseason than any before it. As the teams get ready to decide National League supremacy, let’s take a look at the tale of the tape.

Unfortunately, I’ve never been to St. Louis and have nothing to say involving the quality of conditions there- anyone familiar enough with both of these cities to pass judgment?
