We’ve all made a stupid bet or seven in our time – yes, even you have! However, one fan may well have taken the award for the most ridiculous bet of all-time.
Well, the forfeit was absolutely stupid, not necessarily the bet itself. Max Charles and a friend bet one another that if their choice of next goalscorer came in, then the other one would have to get the face of the scorer tattoo’d upon their person.
The game was Ireland’s recent heroic 1-1 draw with Germany, and unlucky for Max, his mate selected current-Sunderland defender John O’Shea and, as we all know, the former Manchester United came up with the surprising goods to give Ireland one of their finest international nights.
Fair play to Max, though, who stuck to his word and got O’Shea’s face inked to his leg – rather him than me, is all I’d say!
Lose a bet. End up with a John O'Shea tattoo on your leg. Simple. pic.twitter.com/jVsQwQxsRB
