My Twitter Bet Results In Someone I've Never Met Eating Balut
The internet never ceases to amaze (except when you're looking for something to do on it and can't find anything). Back at the end of the NBA regular season, when the Suns locked up a first round date with the Blazers, I started having a Twitter conversation with the great Henry Abbot over at TrueHoop. He's a Blazers fan, and thought his team, even without Brandon Roy, could beat the Suns. I thought he was being foolish, and suggested a friendly wager. He proposed that it involve the loser eating some bizarre food of the winner's choosing. I told him that I hoped he liked balut.
The Blazers lost. The rest is history.
Now you can watch Henry Abbot stay true to his word and eat a whole, semi-fertilized duck egg at a Filipino restaurant in Queens. Special thanks to my buddy Lucas Jansen for shooting the video. I must say, I'm a little jealous I didn't get to tag along.
