Never make Twitter bets you can't cash.
A fan named Fisher King, @SquareKnight, took to Twitter before the St. Louis Rams-Cleveland Browns game claiming if Michael Sam recorded a sack on Johnny Manziel, he'd buy free drinks for the world.
Rams vs Browns tonight. If Michael Sam sacks Johnny Football & gives the money sign, drinks are on me. For everyone in the world. Forever.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 23, 2014
Well, bud, it happened.
Then the doubts crept into King's mind.
OMG! So glorious that Sam did it! Take that Johnny Football. You go, Mike!— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
Today I messed up by promising mankind free booze for all eternity.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
King decided to take his bold predictions to the next level.
Since my frivolous bets influence human events ... if the Jets win the Super Bowl, free puppies and ice cream for every kid in America.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
After King realized what he was getting into, he backed out of the bet.
Anyone know Sam's fave charity? So pumped he sacked JFF. If I can't perpetually intoxicate society, I can contribute to its betterment.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014

Michael Sam caught wind of the bet, and instead of buying booze, Sam recommended a donation to a local charity.
.@MichaelSamNFL: Consider it done. Great play, btw. Give 'em all Hell in the NFL! You're a class act. God bless, brother.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
Proud to have made a donation to the STL Boys & Girls Club in honor of Sam's great play. I'm a product of a Boys & Girls Club too.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 25, 2014

Sorry, everyone. You'll have to buy your own drinks from here on out. But what really matters is that some lucky boys and girls in St. Louis will be on the receiving end of a donation.
