Never vow to eat a worm if you lose a hockey bet

Watching Vancouver collapse to Chicago yet again last night, I took comfort knowing, at least I didn’t bet anything in the hockey playoff pool – except pride.

Some other guy lost a hockey bet and had to eat a worm.

Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports reports that a Colorado Avalanche fan living in Australia, with the handle, Drizzt1 hangs out on the official fan message boards on the Avs’ website.

On Nov. 6, 2010, the Avalanche were set to play the Dallas Stars when another user on those boards predicted that center Kevin Porter(notes), who had yet to score a goal in the regular season, would have the game-winner that night.

Drizzt1, on 06 November 2010 – 3:08 PM, said:

I’ll go outside, pick up the closest dead worm, and eat it if that is the case, and put up video evidence on these boards!

At 10:02 of the first period, Porter scored. The Avalanche won, 5-0. So, while not exactly dramatic, he had the game-winning goal.

Drizzt1 made good on his wager last Friday. The video is below.

"Firstly, it was disgusting. It fricken squirmed in my mouth. Secondly, again, I apologize because I was pretty drunk. Third, once it finished, I spewed."
