Making a non-money/no beer NFL bet

    My buddy and I are trying to set the ground rules on a bet for the Packers/Niners game.
    We always do beer or money...but that's boring...so he came up with an idea.

    If the Packers win, I have to stay off social media for as long as the Packers stay in the playoffs.

    I am drawing a blank. He's not big on using facebook and doesn't have a twitter account.
    He works from home, so public embarrassment seems out. And we live 100s of miles apart, so that takes a lot out of play as well.

    Anyone have a suggestion? We both don't mind crossing the line as far as tasteful things. But I am stumped.

    I told one of the bosses at work if the Seahawks and Broncos play in the Super Bowl, and the Seahawks win, I want an extra day off with pay. He said he'd rather bet money.

    Then MAKE him bet using facebook and twitter... 24 posts a day total, no less than a half hour apart so he can't bundle... complimentary to the Packers, the UP or you -- hell, even Hilltop... for as long as the Packers are in -- and he has to tag you so you know he;s done it.
    It's a bet -- make it about sacrifice. If you have to stay off, he has to dive in.

    Take a page from the Simpsons, loser has to mow the winner's lawn in a dress. If that isn't possible because of weather or lack of lawn, make the loser get food/coffee in a dress. If you aren't that mean, have loser wear winner team's gear in said situations.

    Bet him your bratwurst vs. his cioppino in a sourdough bowl, only the loser has to have ingredients from the home locale (even if he has to have them flown in) and has to drive to the winner's house to prepare it.

    I have made bets with females that didn't involve beer or money, but never another guy.
