In 1978 we played Provo High School and before boarding the bus a friend of mine bet me a steak dinner that we'd lose by 50 points. I took him up on the bet, I mean nobody gets worked that badly during a 32 minute game. We lost by 48 and my teammates were all wondering why I remained emotionally invested in the game until it finished. In my case I guess you take your victories where you can get them.

That was Kearns High and Jim Spencer's team was loaded that year.

By the way, that friend still hasn't paid up.
