Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White owes fan prime ticket


Falcons wideout Roddy White is known by fans to have a very colorful personality. Some fans of the team would arguably say he's an unofficial spokesperson, for better or worse, depending on the situation. White's Twitter followers also know that he's an avid Duke Blue Devils basketball fan. He frequently sends messages before, during and after Duke games.

Prior to the NCAA Tournament, a fan asked White how far Duke will go this year.

Shortly after White's claim, a fan correctly predicted that the Blue Devils would be upset on Friday, to which White responded boldly.

Soon after the news of the "bet" got out and when Mercer eventually beat Duke, White took to Twitter one last time, on Friday.

While football season is still months away, the Bears game just got more exciting for one fan and possibly White as well. For everyone else, it's about salvaging what's left of the bracket and witnessing more upsets in the near feature.
