NFL star Roddy White is set to be out of pocket after making a bet with one fan ahead of the Duke-Mercer March Madness game today.
One plucky fan tweeted the Atlanta Falcons player before the game began claiming that Mercer were going to beat Duke in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
But such was the faith White had in the Coach K and the Blue Devils that he responded with a proposed wager:
"If Mercer beat Duke I will give you season tickets 50 yard line first row."
And sure enough the no.14 underdogs overcame the college basketball powerhouse 78-71 in Friday's game to send Duke home early.
After some quick research it looks getting ahold of the couple of primetime seats offered by the four-time Pro Bowler will set him back around $3,000.
And while that may only be small change for a player on a big NFL contract, it might be enough to prevent White from attempting to become an NCAA basketball analyst in the offseason.
He doesn't even have the excuse of having attended Duke.
As yet White hasn't responded to the fan but with the media, and the social media community, picking up on the story it certainly looks like he is going to have to put his money where his mouth is.
At least we can take solace in the fact that even pro athletes are losing money as March Madness 2014 continues to shock the nation.
