Michael Sam sacking Johnny Manziel makes a Twitter user eat his words

Some on social media make lofty assertions with no thought into the possible repercussions should their tweet actually come true. Well, that happened to one guy as a result of the two rookies and a sack that sent shockwaves surging through social media.
Meet @SquareKnight, who thought it so unbelievable that Sam would sack, then taunt Manziel, that he made a big promise Saturday morning.
Rams vs Browns tonight. If Michael Sam sacks Johnny Football & gives the money sign, drinks are on me. For everyone in the world. Forever.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 23, 2014
And then, this happened.
So he was left to figure out where to go next (and it's quite funny to watch unfold-- a Twitter stream of consciousness, so to say).
OMG! So glorious that Sam did it! Take that Johnny Football. You go, Mike!— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
Today I messed up by promising mankind free booze for all eternity.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
This guy may be Nostradamus, and he's already got another prediction up his sleeve.
Since my frivolous bets influence human events ... if the Jets win the Super Bowl, free puppies and ice cream for every kid in America.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
Sam chimed in with a charity of choice and the guy is going to give to a good cause.
Anyone know Sam's fave charity? So pumped he sacked JFF. If I can't perpetually intoxicate society, I can contribute to its betterment.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 24, 2014
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.— FISHER KING (@SquareKnight) August 25, 2014
Just another reminder: think before you tweet -- or you may end up promising the world drinks for all of time, realizing you can't actually live up to that, then tweeting with a professional athlete. Guess it actually ended up working out pretty swell, as the clock hits 14:59.
