The Super Bowl is only a week away, and Eagles right tackle is doubling down on his August promise:
“If we win a Super Bowl, I’m giving out beer to everybody.”
Last Thursday he told NJ.com:
“I really don’t mind putting in my own money if we’re going to a parade. Nobody expected it, but here we are. I’ll be a man of my word. It’ll be fun.”
Johnson won’t have to fork over his own money, however, as Bud Light answered his boast on Twitter shortly after it was made in the summer.
“Let’s make a bet. Win it all and the party is on us. Deal?” Bud Light posted on its Twitter page.
Months later, Bud Light still plans to honor its vow.
“Bud Light has not forgotten about our commitment to Lane Johnson, the Eagles and the city of Philadelphia,” the company said in a statement to CBS Philly. “We will be sharing plans soon, but in the interest of not jinxing the team ahead of their upcoming game, we are not going to unveil any plans at this time.”
