ESPN’s Sports Guy Bill Simmons is one of the most popular sports writers on the internet and considered to be one of the most prominent Red Sox fans in the country. The accomplished author wrote a book entitled Now I can Finally Die in Peace after the Red Sox came back from down 0-3 against the Yankees to win the World Series in 2004. Well after this year’s World Series favorites started off the year 0-4 and lost to the Indians Tuesday night, Simmons tweeted that he wasn’t going to tweet again until the Red Sox won a game. Now, Sportsbook.com is taking bets on the subject of his first tweet after the Sox get back in the win column.
Now that the sportsbook has made a proposition out of his twitter, there’s only one way to proceed. Get some friends to place money on the umpires and have old Billy boy throw in a Dan Iassogna reference after the victory. Seriously, if they’re making a joke out of him, why not make a joke out of them? This easily has to be the strangest Simmons story since he wrote about that haunted hotel in Oklahoma City.
