Houston Texans Fan Loses Bet, Made to Stand on Corner With (Ugh) Cowboys Sign
If you’re going to lose a preseason football bet, you might as well do it in style.
And that’s precisely what happened to Justin Chapman, a Houston Texans fan who made a faulty bet on that ill-fated Dallas Cowboys vs. Texans game that took place last weekend.
Chapman, who bet that the Texans would beat those boys in blue, lost — and now he’s stuck wearing a pink dress on a corner in Pasadena Wednesday afternoon as punishment.
(Side note: Standing on any corner in Pasa-Get-Down-Dena would be punishment enough, but the dress? Insult to injury.)
The overzealous Texans fan will also have to sport a sign reading “Cowboys Butt’s Drive Me Nuts!” because, well, his friends are dicks.
But all is not lost — except for Justin’s friends, who are hopeless because they are Cowboys fans — because he’ll be standing out there in that pretty pink dress and holding that horrid sign for a good cause.
Justin will be collecting donations for the family of Deputy Darren Goforth, whose murder made shockwaves across the nation after he was gunned down while pumping gas in the Houston area last week.
Here are the details, straight from that Texans fan’s Facebook:
ATTENTION FACEBOOK FRIENDS!!!! I’M WEARING THE DRESS THIS WEEK!!!!!
It’s that time again. Every year I will be making a bet that if the Cowboys beat the Texans, I will stand on the corner of Burke and Fairmont with a sign that says, “Cowboys Butt’s Drive Me Nuts!”
I am going to make this a tradition and I will be choosing a charity every year to donate to if the Cowboys beat the Texans. All-in-all it’s going to be for a good cause.
Date: September 9th, 2015
Where: Corner of Fairmont and Burke (PASADENA, TX)
Looking for volunteers to go out with buckets and collect donations for Deputy Darren Goforth’s family!!!! MESSAGE ME!!!

Well, good for Justin for turning shitty Cowboys lemons into margaritas. Maybe next year the Texans will pull off the win and he’ll get to torture his buddies with a Texans-themed tutu instead.
