ALGER, Skagit County — Three men watching last week’s Monday Night Football game between Seattle and Dallas stepped outside the Alger Tavern to settle a bet on the game.

One of them had promised to burn his Seahawks’ memorabilia if Seattle lost, which is exactly what happened.

True to his word, the man walked outside, stripped off his jersey and hat, and lit them afire on the tavern’s walkway, the Skagit Valley Herald reported.
