Male Alabama fan had to settle bet with bellybutton ring after loss to Auburn


For whatever reason, college football fans love making crazy bets before rivalry games. We’re not talking about cash wagers. A lot of this stuff — like getting a tattoo on your backside — is worse than losing money. But nothing could be worse than a man with a bellybutton ring.

A reader recently emailed a disturbing photo to Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage and explained the story behind the Auburn bellybutton ring dangling off the hairy stomach.

“Two of my friends have been making Iron Bowl bets since college, so for over 10 years now. The bets began innocently such as singing the other teams fight song, buying the other guys drinks all night and have slowly progressed. They are now getting to a dangerous level. … Since this year’s Iron Bowl was boring with not much on the line (sarcasm font), they made a bet to attempt to keep everyone’s interest in the game and bet belly button rings.”

Wasn’t the way the Iron Bowl ended punishment enough? I don’t know if this dude has to wear the ring for life or if he can let that thing close up after a certain amount of time, but it’s not going to help him with the ladies. I’m starting to think tattoos to pay off debts may be the way to go.

Jonathan Stewart Wears LSU Jersey After Losing Bet with Brandon LaFell

LSU beat Oregon 40-27 in the biggest college football game of the opening weekend Saturday. Carolina wide receiver Brandon LaFell had a bet with teammate Jonathan Stewart over whose school would win the game. LaFell won that bet, and the result is Stewart wearing an LSU jersey this week:

LaFell tweeted that picture with the accompanying message “Jonathan Stewart will be in purple n gold all week.”

Stewart replied “I know I lost the bet though!! Gotta be a man of my word LaFell, Oregon and LSU will meet again.”

It was an impressive win for LSU given that they went with Jarrett Lee at quarterback for the game. I’m guessing most people didn’t expect the Tigers to be up by 20 most of the second half. Well, at least I’m sure Stewart didn’t. He should just be happy he didn’t have to wear this after losing the bet.

Dennis Hallman Responds to Speedo Incident, Says He Lost a Bet

For those of you who missed it, Dennis Hallman made an interesting wardrobe selection over the weekend at UFC 133.  His banana hammock made headlines everywhere, and the trunks were so small his berries even made a disturbing appearance during his fight.  Needless to say, Dana White was furious with what Hallman wore and the fact that people allowed it to happen.

Hallman told MMAJunkie.com on Monday that he had to smuggle grapes to his fight with Brian Ebersole because he lost a bet with a couple of training buddies.  He explained that he isn’t the first guy to wear a Speedo and the only reason it’s a big deal is because he’s the first in the modern UFC era to do it.  Then he came out with this gem:

“People are sick, disgusting perverts,” Hallman said. “They’ll break the film down frame-by-frame so they can get a little ball action. That’s kind of strange. They have problems.”

In other words, we’re sick and twisted for talking about Hallman’s balls popping out during a UFC fight.  He’s not sick and twisted for wearing something that turns a fight with a mostly male audience into a peep show.  We’re glad he only wore the Speedo because he lost a bet, but don’t try to defend it by calling us perverts.

Ron Gardenhire Loses World Cup Bet to Tsuyoshi Nishioka

Yup, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire lost a bet with infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka over the World Cup Sunday and had to wear that shirt. Sure, the terms could have been much worse (we would have preferred something along these lines), but that’s not bad. Nishioka is a rookie infielder from Japan and Gardenhire is … well the guy who paid the price for the U.S. losing in penalty kicks.
