We saw the brotherly rivalry on full display last season between Kyle Long of the Chicago Bears and older brother Chris Long of the St. Louis Rams when the two teams met last season, and now that sibling rivalry is spilling over from the gridiron to the ice where the two have a bet on who will win in the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks series.
Okay @JOEL9ONE & I have a wager – loser of the STL CHI series can’t tweet for a month. I agree to this wager. May the best team win…

After Alex Steen won the game for the Blues in triple overtime, older brother Chirs fired off this tweet.
Kyle was quick to brush off the loss with the standard line being, “it’s just one game” and it was, but that didn’t stop older brother from rubbing it in a bit, as older brothers tend to do.
“@Ky1eLong: It’s one game” epic, obvious statement

Chris continued to pile on his younger brother and last year’s first round pick of the Bears and had the last laugh with this tweet.
Game 2 in this series is Saturday at 3:00 p.m. ET so we will see if Kyle can return the favor or if Chris and the Blues can take a 2-0 lead over the defending Stanley Cup Champions.
