When the Chicago Cubs lifted the World Series back in October, it was a bittersweet moment for one Cubs fan.

C.J. Kavadas bet with his friends that the Cubs would not win the World Series.

How sure was he? Well, the forfeit was that if his team won baseball’s most coveted prize, he would pull out his own tooth.

Kavadas can be forgiven for making such an outrageous bet considering that the Cubs last championship triumph was back in 1908.

At the time of betting, even the most die-hard Cubs fan would’ve conceded that this was a safe bet.

However, in the same way winning streaks work, all losing streaks must eventually come to an end.

Kavadas stuck to his word and lost his tooth in a novel, but extremely painful, way.

As you can see from the video, the young Cub’s fan tied a piece of string to his tooth, which was attached to an American football.

The slow motion effect in the clip shows the tooth cleanly leave his mouth and fly effortlessly through the air.

It’s strangely satisfying, don’t you think?

Despite the pain endured by Kavadas, it would be safe to say that it was a small price to pay for watching his team make history.
