In December 2015, British TV host and pro footballer (that's "pro soccer player" for us American heathens) Gary Lineker made what probably seemed like a safe bet. Gary tweeted that if Leicester's soccer team ever won the Premier League, he would strip to his "undies" while hosting his BBC sports show, Match of the Day. Leicester, traditionally, is what the English call "terrible"—before the last season started, bookies were offering 500 to 1 odds on them winning the Premier League.
