UPDATE: The bet has been settled (via ESPN).
Proud to have made a donation to the STL Boys & Girls Club in honor of Sam's great play. I'm a product of a Boys & Girls Club too.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 25, 2014
Well done and much appreciated! MT @SquareKnight Proud to have made a donation to the STL Boys & Girls Club in honor of Sam's great play— Michael Sam (@MichaelSamNFL) August 25, 2014
Sometimes, people do things on the internet that they later regret in life. Take this guy for example. At 10:12 a.m. ET on Saturday, almost a full 10 hours before the Rams were scheduled to play the Browns, some guy on Twitter tweeted out the following.
Rams vs Browns tonight. If Michael Sam sacks Johnny Football & gives the money sign, drinks are on me. For everyone in the world. Forever.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 23, 2014
It looked like our friend was going to make it through the game with no problems. Manziel didn't get into the game until the third quarter and going into the the fourth quarter, Michael Sam hadn't sacked him yet.
Even if Sam did somehow sack Manziel, he would have to follow up the sack with Manziel's 'money fingers.' NO WAY THAT HAPPENS, RIGHT?
Then it happened.
All of it.
The money fingers.
And we all now have free drinks for life.
On a somewhat related note, our Twitter friend -- and he is our friend because he owes us drinks for the rest of time -- seems to realize the ridiculousness of his mistake. Instead of buying everyone drinks for the rest of time, he says he's going to donate to Sam's favorite charity. I think that's fair.
Anyone know Sam's fave charity? So pumped he sacked JFF. If I can't perpetually intoxicate society, I can contribute to its betterment.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
Also, things could be worse for Mr. SquareKnight, he could be this guy.
If Michael Sam sacks Manziel i'll never watch football again.— The Facilitator (@KingYJBron) August 23, 2014
I would rather go broke buying drinks for the world than to never watch football again.
