Ted Danson (yes that Ted Danson) has bet $1000 on Boston.

Neither will have to pay out, maybe their estates will someday.

Moreover, it looks like you have to be some celebritante or VIP before
longbets.com allows you a position.  I hate shit like that.

Not according to the website.  They did use celebrities along with an
article in WIRED magazine to "get the ball rolling" on the bets, but there
are a number of open bets waiting for somebody to take the "against" side as
long as they are willing to put the $$$ down (Minimum $1000).

I think he wins, though, quite honestly, their estates will be the
ones to have to collect...

I'd have to go with Ted here, even though I'm fully aware of the
legendary Red Sox *** ability (which rivals that of my beloved
Jazz in the NBA).  The better bet would have been the US men winning
the WC before the Cubs winning the World Series again....
