T.V. shot to death after Saints beat the Redskins 33-30 in OT.

WHAT AN IDIOT!! Pretty funny though!!

ALBANY, LA (WAFB) - During Sunday's nail-biting Saints game, a man bet his buddies if the Saints pulled out a win, they could pull out their guns and use his huge television set for target practice. Someone videoed the group of "Who Dats" destroy the set and posted it on YouTube.

Wayne Spring, the man who loss the bet, is by all indications a smart man. He is a successful small business owner and pilot. This usually intelligent guy made a big mistake when he offered a harmless bet on Facebook.

"I told them if the Saints can beat the Redskins, y'all can come shoot my 60-inch TV."

Just minutes after the Saints pulled out a thrilling overtime victory, the troops rallied. Before he could realize what was happening, Spring's $3600 60-inch Sony was in his front yard facing a 15-man firing squad.

"Honestly, I never thought it would happen," Spring said. "I thought the TV was safe."

After his friends had their fun at the monitor's expense, Spring decided to join in the fun. He brought out his .30-06 rifle and took a shot at his own television.

"A bet's a bet, so I might as well partake, right? Why not?"

However, after putting countless holes into the television, the motley crew of "Who Dats" was not done.

"The shotgun, the rifle and the pistol just didn't knock the screen out, so I figured I could," said Michael Quave.

His strategic form of attack was to run straight at the television head first. It worked and the screen shattered into bits. Once the smoke settled over the pile of broken glass and shredded plastic, Spring admitted the experience taught him a lesson to never, ever bet against the Saints.

"I am a Saints fan, effective after this happened. I will root for the Saints from here on out, that's a promise to everybody. Like you said, I'm a man of my word," he said.

Spring's biggest problem may be with his wife. She would not comment, though she was smiling.

When they start firing at the TV it looks like a scene out of Predator, only with the White Trash Comedy Tour guys taking aim.
