Canadian Man Hasn’t Worn Pants in 18 Years to Honor a Bet
A die-hard Canadian football fan who made a bet in 2001 saying that if the Winnipeg Blue Bombers didn’t win the title, he wouldn’t wear pants until they won it all. They didn’t win that year…and he’s been wearing shorts every day since. 18 years of NO PANTS….IN CANADA.
Now his team is just two wins away from this guy getting to wear pants again.
FYI: The normal high in Mid-November is 15*. Winnipeg --- in the middle of winter --- is lucky to reach high temps in double digits and this guy’s been rockin’ shorts non-stop for over 6500 days.
The ONLY time he’s worn pants throughout the past 18 years is to a funeral.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are set to face the Saskatchewan Roughriders this weekend in the Conference Finals. If they win, they’ll advance to the Grey Cup (the equivalent of the NFL's 'Big Game') on November 24th.
If luck goes his way, he'll get to wear pants this winter in Canada.
