WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – One unforeseen ramification of Mercer’s bracket-busting upset over Duke on Friday, was Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White having to pay up on an ill-fated Twitter bet with a Bears fan.
On Tuesday, White, an apparent Duke
fan apologist rooter-on-er, haphazardly engaged in a bet promising “season tickets” along the 50-yard line in the unlikely event that 3-seed Duke lost to 14-seed Mercer in its NCAA Tournament opener.
Then, almost as if he actually believed his team could do it — like Mercer (who?) could beat Duke — the apparent Mercer fan locked in their gentleman’s agreement.[tweet https://twitter.com/DHoyt77/statuses/446000341948321792 width=”420″]
And then, um, Mercer beat Duke.
Like all Mercer Bears fans you know, this one wasn’t about to forget about his loosely agreed upon, but still well-defined bet with an All-Pro NFL wide receiver.[tweet https://twitter.com/DHoyt77/status/447077005390282752 width=”420″]
White immediately fell under siege by thine righteous hand of the internet, calling for him to make good on his end.[tweet https://twitter.com/TheFalcoholic/status/447097651339993089 width=”420″]
White, reluctantly it seems, then partially satisfied the terms of his bet with the [Mercer] Bears fan.[tweet https://twitter.com/roddywhiteTV/statuses/447106671446605824 width=”420″]
The internet is sooooo great.
