Man bets against Panthers, stands shirtless and blue in the street

GASTONIA, NC (WBTV) -

Ricky Woods said when he made the bet the Carolina Panthers wouldn’t make it to the Super Bowl, he actually thought they wouldn’t make it to the Super Bowl.

He went big with his bet. 

“I told my coworkers I’d paint myself blue and stand out here on the side of the street,” Woods said.

Wednesday afternoon, Ricky made good on the bet, and actually stood shirtless on the side of Franklin Boulevard in Gastonia.

Drivers seemed to love the sight and honked as they passed.

One would imagine Ricky would have changed his mind about the Panthers after enduring the humiliation, but alas, he’s betting against them again.

“I’m betting they won’t win the Super Bowl," he said, "And if they do, I’ll stand out in front of Bank of America Stadium in a tutu.”

Let’s sure hope those Panthers bring home the trophy!
