NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- A Louisiana man who bet against the New Orleans Saints has lost his 60-inch high-definition, flat-screen TV to a backyard firing squad, but he also became an Internet star.
Wayne A. Spring told his friends that if New Orleans beat the Washington Redskins on Sunday, anyone who wanted could come to his house and shoot his television.
Spring said as soon as the undefeated Saints kicked the winning field goal, his phone started ringing.
About a dozen gun-toting Saints fans showed up at his home in Albany, about 50 miles northwest of New Orleans, and shot up his TV in the back yard.
Spring put the video on YouTube and says it has had over 145,000 hits in three days.
Authorities said the TV shooting apparently didn't break any laws.
