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.
Jabari Parker RT @StanleyCharlie4 who do you think the Celtics should draft in the next draft?— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 18, 2014
Prior to the NCAA Tournament, a fan asked White how far Duke will go this year.
Championship RT @kristenm2185 how far do you think duke goes this year??— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 18, 2014
Shortly after White's claim, a fan correctly predicted that the Blue Devils would be upset on Friday, to which White responded boldly.
@DHoyt77 if mercer beat duke I will give you season tickets 50 yard line first row— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 18, 2014
Soon after the news of the "bet" got out and when Mercer eventually beat Duke, White took to Twitter one last time, on Friday.
I lost a bet and I will give him tickets to the bears game since he is a bears fan done with this bet— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 21, 2014
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.
