Retweet of the Day - November 6, 2013

Ah, love and football! The Chicago Bears upset the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field, 27-20, on Monday Night Football. John Grant, of Mayville, Wisconsin and his wife made a drunken bet with penal consequences.

Grant is a Bears fan and his wife is a Packers fan. They made a "friendly" bet that the person whose team lost would get tased. At some point after the game (and after a very intoxicating quantity of beverages), Grant went to collect, zapping his wife in the butt and thigh, according to

Apparently, Mrs. Grant didn't take too kindly to having to pay up. She called the cops and showed them the cell phone video of the tasing. To jail John Grant went. He faces up to six years in the slammer for illegal use of an electric weapon.

Today's retweet, from Chris Giallanza ‏(@chrisgatl), illustrates how some fans are willing to take a little more pain for their team's cause than others, like Grant's wife.

"Dude really gave her the taser? Tell you what - people can get in line to taser me if the #Falcons make the playoffs"    

"Don't tase me, beau! Don't tase me!" If he lost, I wonder if he'd have said, "Don't tase me, ho! Don't tase me!"
Kind of makes me wonder if O.J. made a similar bet with his wife.
