Long brothers make Blues-Blackhawks playoff bet

Apr 18, 3:16 PM

Chris and Kyle Long are two of the more active Twitter users among NFL players, but when the first-round playoff series between the NHL's St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks is decided, one of them will be forced to give up their tweeting rights for a month.

That was the wager posed by Chris on Thursday night before the first game of the series got underway. 

As a defensive lineman for the Rams, Chris's allegiance is to the Blues. Kyle, the Bears' 2013 first-round pick, is rooting for the Blackhawks.

Unfortunately for Kyle, St. Louis drew first blood with Alex Steen scoring the game-winning goal 26 seconds into triple overtime to give the Blues a 4-3 victory.

He wasn't overly concerned, though.

Chris, on the other hand, was feeling pretty confident.
