2014 Sochi Olympics: Loser Gets Bieber? Now THAT’S Motivation (Pic)
The American and Canadian Olympic men’s hockey teams don’t really need any extra motivation to get them pumped up for today’s semifinal showdown. This is the marquee event of the entire 2014 Winter Olympics, a rematch everyone has been waiting for since Sidney Crosby handed Team USA the silver medal in overtime four years ago in Vancouver. Whoever wins will become national heroes, and you can be damn sure every guy who takes the ice today at the Bolshoy Ice Dome knows it.
That being said, it’s always fun to make a little friendly wager on the outcome of a big game. And none could be better than the one proposed by freight company Command Transportation of Skokie, Illinois. They often put amusing images on the electronic billboard that hangs on the outside of their building, and long ago they set up a Twitter account for the sign. However, they hit the jackpot when they posted the above image up on the board yesterday, as it went viral in about 30 seconds.
Unfortunately, the outcome of the game today will not determine who actually has to keep Bieber. Oh, President Obama and Canadian Prime Minster Stephen Harper did make a wager…but it was just for a case of beer.
