Vikings Fan Forced To Wear Dress, Hold Sign After Losing Bet

A Vikings fan from Duluth created quite the spectacle for motorists on Tuesday when he stationed himself in an intersection wearing a dress and holding up a sign ripping his own football knowledge. All in the name of paying off a bet.

Ryan Hammerstrom bet his buddy Josh Drummer that the Vikings’ first pick in the draft would be a quarterback, while Josh insisted it would be a linebacker. As you well know, the Vikings went linebacker with their first pick, taking Anthony Barr out of UCLA.

Ryan wasn’t wrong by much – the Vikings would take QB Teddy Bridgewater with their second pick of the day – but he was wrong. To pay off the bet, he had to dress in drag and hold up a sign saying “I Ryan Hammstrom Know Nothing About Vikings Football.”

The man is a good sport. And luckily it didn’t rain or snow or do anything else crazy in Duluth the day he had to stand out there at the stop light by the Holiday station.

From now on, Ryan, just listen to Sid Hartman. He knew the Vikings wouldn’t take a quarterback first.
