One man on Twitter bet everyone on Earth that St. Louis Rams rookie Michael Sam wouldn't sack Cleveland's Johnny Manziel, and then flash the former Heisman winner's signature celebration. Well, he lost that bet. But it all worked out.
Before the Rams took on the Browns in a preseason game on Saturday night, a Twitter user named FISHER KING promised to provide drinks for the entire world if Sam took down Manziel and then celebrated with the money sign:
Rams vs Browns tonight. If Michael Sam sacks Johnny Football & gives the money sign, drinks are on me. For everyone in the world. Forever.

In the fourth quarter, the first openly gay player ever to be picked in the NFL draft did just that. While FISHER KING was thrilled to see the highlight and the celebration, he knew he owed everyone on the planet drinks for the rest of his life:
OMG! So glorious that Sam did it! Take that Johnny Football. You go, Mike!
Today I messed up by promising mankind free booze for all eternity.
Realizing that his promise was impossible to keep, FISHER KING had another idea:
Anyone know Sam's fave charity? So pumped he sacked JFF. If I can't perpetually intoxicate society, I can contribute to its betterment.
Sam heard about the fan's lost bet and decided to help him out:
.@MichaelSamNFL: Consider it done. Great play, btw. Give 'em all Hell in the NFL! You're a class act. God bless, brother.
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.
