Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings wager on Twitter

The Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings are squaring off on the ice and via social media, as their team’s Twitter accounts have made a wager.

The Chicago Blackhawks opened up their series against the Los Angeles Kings yesterday with a 3-1 victory in a tightly contested game one.

Defenseman Duncan Keith scored the game-winner and Brandon Saad had two points (a goal and an assist) in the contest.

The series is going to be a close one and could become a new age rivalry, so much so that the two team’s Twitter pages have gotten in on the action via a series of funny wagers.

Here is a transcript of the wager as it happened:

@LAKings – @NHLBlackhawks Alright, here’s the wager; loser has to change twitter picture and name to opposing logo and hashtag. Deal?

@NHLBlackhawks – @LAKings That’ so 2013. How about loser donates signed captain’s jersey to winning team’s charity.

@LAKings -@NHLBlackhawks add loser sends a pizza to the winner and it’s a deal.

@NHLBlackhawks – @LAKings Done. Note we don’t roll with alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast though.

The Kings got the bets off to a start, but like the series so far Chicago is up. The creativity behind the poster of the Chicago account is definetely of a higher grade. They deserve two thumbs up for their comment “we don’t roll with alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast though.”

Do you think the Blackhawks will send a deep dish if they lose the series? Or will Dustin Brown be getting out his marker to sign a jersey heading for Chicago’s charity.
