Michael Sam celebrates after sacking Johnny Manziel.
Be careful what you bet on, or you'll have to put your money where your tweet is.

Twitter user @SquareKnight made a boldly hyperbolic wager with the world before Saturday's matchup between the St. Louis Rams and the Cleveland Browns.

Sam, the NFL's first out gay player, has been competing for a roster spot on the St. Louis Rams since he was drafted in the seventh round. Saturday night he brought his A-game, sacking Manziel twice: once with just under eleven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and again on the final play of the game. With Manziel, a.k.a. Johnny "Football," on the ground, Sam celebrated by imitating Manziel's "money" sign.

"If you're going to sack Johnny, you've got to do [the money sign] once," Sam told ESPN. Sam also sacked Manziel when Sam was a junior and a senior at the University of Missouri.

Sam's sack and celebratory dance perfectly matched what @SquareKnight (who declined to share his real name with media) bet before the game even started. Drinks for everyone in the world? Forever? Sounds expensive, but if he's offering, we'll take a Hamm's.


@SquareKnight started backing away from his bet (and from angry Sam fans on Twitter who thought the bet was disrespectful of the rookie) and began wondering publicly how he could get out of buying drinks for the entire world like an alcoholic Coca-Cola commercial.

That's when Sam stepped in with a suggestion of his own:

It worked! @SquareKnight says he's donating $500.

And since this guy seems to be able to predict football future:

Good on Michael Sam for the Boys and Girls Club suggestion, and kudos to the Tweeter who made good on the donation.
