Scotty McCreery may have grown up in North Carolina, but he’s been a Patriots fan for as long as he can remember.
According to the Patriots, McCreery’s dad is originally from New England and passed his love of the Patriots on to his son.
On Saturday, McCreery made a bet that his Patriots would beat the Broncos:
The singer and former American Idol champ is a die-hard Patriots fan, and he bet his friend Evan McNeill that if the Patriots won, McNeill would jump into the Atlantic Ocean, while if the Broncos won, McCreery would be forced to brave the freezing-cold water. Of course, the Patriots lost by a mere two points on Sunday, and another friend, Austin Nagy, posted a video to Twitter Sunday night of McCreery — wearing shorts and a Patriots shirt — preparing to pay up. He gives a few shout outs before abruptly stripping off his shirt and racing into the water, as his friends instruct, “All the way under! All the way!”
Despite the loss, he proved he’s a man of his word.
