Remember When This Evansville Man Lost a Sports Bet & His Punishment Went Viral?
Usually, when I see someone along the side of the road with a cardboard sign, I know they need help of some sort. But Sunday, I saw a man that had me doing a double-take. He was holding a cardboard sign, but he wasn't close enough to traffic, to be asking for donations. So, I took a closer look.
Actually, there were people honking all around me, even though the light was red. Turns out, they were doing what his sign asked them to do.
"Honk if you think I'm sexy. I lost March Madness"
I don't know a lot about sports, but I guess his bracket was immediately disqualified or something. Maybe his version of March Madness isn't the same as everyone else's? It's hard to actually tell if he is sexy, but yes, I did honk!
This was on Evansville's Westside, so I kind of think it was some sort of college prank, either way, it was funny to see him actually follow through with it.
Don't Let This Happen to You
As you are making your bracket picks this week, keep this poor guy in mind. Don't drink too much green beer and make a silly bet that will cause you to be shamed in public. Of course, if you do please let me know, so I can document it for the Tri-State to see!
