Florida man set on fire after losing National Football League bet

Not only did this man burn his Cowboys jersey, but he then chose to try to wear the jersey as it was on fire.

The two then went outside and set Silyers' jersey on fire.

Police spoke to the couple at the hospital who admitted they'd burn the jersey of the losing team. The Packers won the wild game on Sunday, and - according to the bet - this meant the 27-year-old husband would have to burn his Cowboys jersey.

In one of the season's best games, Green Bay drove the length of the field in less than a minute for a touchdown with 11 seconds left and a 35-31 victory.

Following the Cowboys loss to the Packers Sunday night, a witness told the Sebastian Daily, the jersey burning happened as a result of a lost bet.

While Hook's Dallas jersey burned, according to a Indian River County Sheriff's report gained by TC Palm, Salyers told deputies, "he then grabbed the jersey with his right arm and attempted to put it on while it was on fire".

A Vero Beach man was rushed to the hospital with second and third-degree burns after attempting to put on a flaming football jersey following the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys game.

Was this a very stupid thing to do? Probably. Will he have regrets? The most obvious of which are to not make bets that involve fire, and don't actually go through with a bet that involves fire if you lose the bet. But it usually never ends with them setting themselves on fire. That's loyalty if I've ever seen it.
