Birdman to Bet $5M on Super Bowl
Doesn’t this sound like some fantastical story, like a half bird, half man hybrid that is also a mysterious millionaire is going to make a crazy large wager on the Super Bowl because his bird half is very bad with math and he really only wanted to wager five eggs, or something?
Alas, if you, like me, were hoping for a Super Bowl themed story about science experiments gone horrifically, entertainingly wrong, you, like me, will come off very disappointed here. It’s just some rapper dude who apparently goes by the name of Birdman. Boring. And this “Birdman” character is so into American football or rich or into American football and rich that he’s making a $5 million dollar bet on the Super Bowl. Bah.
Birdman website explains more in-depth about how he is 100% human, saying:
“With all of his elaborate possessions – from jewels to cars and homes; his cash money making ventures- from music to videogames to shoes and clothing; Bryan ‘Birdman aka Baby’ Williams is poised to continue shining in everything he does.”
And then another blog notes the rapper’s Twitter comments, and the less obvious reasons a $5 million dollar bet on the Super Bowl isn’t such a great idea in this scenario:
“I like New England because BenJarvus Green-Ellis is my nephew. I plan on wagering $5 million on the game to anyone who wants the action.”
Birdman told Billboard earlier this month that Green-Ellis is his brother’s son and I’m going to take him at his word because he has face tattoos. Still, having family on the team seems like a bad reason to wager 5 percent of your net wealth on the outcome of a game. Somebody is Rex Grossman’s uncle too, you know?
Well, at least if Birdman loses, he doesn’t plan on tweeting his junk, which is an idea we can all get behind.
