Athletes Who Don't Pay Their Bets
Matt Slocum/Associated Press

We've all been there: You're absolutely positive your favorite team is going to win, but your buddy is convinced of the opposite, so you bet your eyebrows or your salary or your children on a victory, certain you'll get the last laugh.

Three hours later, when things have somehow taken a drastic turn for the worse and the bad guys have come out on top, you're left asking yourself that one, painful question: Do I actually pay up?

Far too often, the answer is "Hell, no."

Losing a bet brings out the worst in us. It makes geniuses look like idiots. It turns bad-asses into cowards. It reveals the sad truth that most people on earth are really sore losers.

Professional athletes are no different. Always bubbling with confidence, sports stars are never afraid to make obscene bets with their opponents or their Twitter followers, but usually end up backing down as soon as it's time to pay up.

Today, these athletes, the sorest of sore losers, will be called out with the Internet as a witness.

Go right ahead and renege on every little bet you've ever made. You can't hide from me.
