The Carlo Colaiacovo INJURY Pool

Anyone down for some good old gamble-age?

Carlo Colaiacovo is as healthy as he's ever been. Training camp gets underway today, which means it's only a matter of time before Carlo gets injured. Anyone down to drop $5 for the first annual Carlo Colaiacovo Injury Pool? Winner take all. First come first serve. Starting tomorrow, Sept. 20, when players hit the ice, we each get to pick the week in which he will be injured. An injury to Carlo will be defined as four games missed in a row, or a stint on the injured list (during training camp or the season). 

So, like I said, if you're interested, we all drop $5 into the pot. Money can be collected via paypal or e-mail transfer, and paid out to the person who correctly predicts Carlo's imminent demise. If Carlo gets injured past a date anyone has selected, the person closest to the date of his injury wins.

If, by the grace of God himself, Carlo manages to stay healthy all year, the money...oh who the fuck am I kidding, we all know he's getting injured.

Let me know what y'all think. This season looks like it's going to involve some heavy drinking, so I'm thinking we should find different ways to spice it up. 

You can select the following weeks:

Sept. 20 - 26

Sept. 27 - Oct. 3

Oct. 4 - 10

Oct. 11 - 17: LEAF FAN IN VAN

Oct. 18 - 24: DRAKENLOT

Oct. 25 - 31: LOSER DOMI


Nov. 8 - 14: EYEBLEAF

Nov. 15 - 21: JOHNNY TORONTO

Nov. 22 - 28: BLURR 1974

Nov. 29 - Dec. 5: CHEMMY


Dec. 13 - 19: NJ BRANCH

Dec. 20 - 26: MARVELOUS WIN

Dec. 27 - Jan. 2, 2009


Feb. 14 - 20: PPP

And so on...If you think Carlo can last into the new year, you're a person of much greater faith than I am.

To kick things off, I'm going to select the week of Nov. 8 - 14, and that's why you see my name there. 

Let me know your thoughts, and if you're down for the pool. If you are, make your selection in the comments section, and I'll be in touch about the $5. 

And, just putting this out there, but if there's a desire to make this even more interesting and up the ante to $10 a head, I'm totally down. You, the people, must decide. 

And, of course, a big thank you to Pension Plan Puppets, both PPP and Chemmy, for the platform to shit on Carlo Colaiacovo. In all honesty, I hope we all lose this pool and Carlo plays 82 games.
