Back in March, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White got on Twitter and made a foolish bet with a guy named Brian Hoyt on the Duke-Mercer game. White told Hoyt that he'd give him Falcons season tickets if Mercer beat Duke. Of course, Mercer went on to win. Oops.
Last night, reader Will sent the Deadspin staff this email, with the subject line "Dook":
Mercer beat Duke 78-71 this afternoon, to the delight of everyone but most of all themselves. Earlier in the day our Nae Naeing bro, Kevin Canevari, was crossed up something awful but he looks no worse for the wear.
