Scotty McCreery 072815We love Scotty McCreery.  We’ve always known he was a man of his word. But, he obviously wanted to prove that on Sunday night.  After the Patriots lost to the Broncos, Scotty had to live up to his end of a lost bet. Hie lost, and now he had to run into the Atlantic Ocean, like he told Evan mcNeill he would (if his patriots lost).  Here is a Twitter conversation you can follow, and, a link to a video of Scotty running back out of the very cold Atlantic Ocean on January 24. I wonder if he will make another bet next year.

[Press Release\ Country music singer Scotty McCreery is a die-hard New England Patriots fan. In fact he sang the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium on Jan. 16 when the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs in their initial AFC Divisional Playoff Game.  Over this past weekend, McCreery invited several of his friends to watch yesterday’s television broadcast of the Patriots vs. Denver Broncos AFC Championship Game at his North Carolina beach house. In advance of the game, McCreery made a bet with his buddy Evan McNeill. If the Patriots won, then McNeill would do a polar plunge into the Atlantic Ocean — but if the Broncos won, then McCreery would be the one to be fully submerged in the icy cold water.

If Manning & Broncos win on Sunday: @ScottyMcCreery takes a polar plunge into the Atlantic Ocean! If the Pats win: I have to go for a swim..

Building his excitement for the game, McCreery reiterated the bet on Twitter later that night (Jan. 23, 2016 10:00 PM):

So, @Broncos win tmrrw, i do a polar plunge in the atlantic. @Patriots win, @2Real_McNeill does it! Who’s going in the ocean tmrrw yall??

The game was played on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 24 and to McCreery’s disappointment, the Denver Broncos beat the New England Patriots 20-18, with the Broncos advancing to the upcoming Super Bowl to play against the Carolina Panthers.

A man of his word, McCreery took the polar plunge.  His buddy Austin Nagy posted video of McCreery’s run into the Atlantic Ocean on Twitter (Jan. 24, 2016 5:47 PM): (Twitter video available at this link)

Well congrats to @2Real_McNeill. Unfortunately for @ScottyMcCreery the Atlantic is pretty cold in January #Sheriff

It was already dark on the East Coast so the video doesn’t show McCreery making it to the ocean – just the shouts of his friends cheering him on.  But McNeill returned to Twitter with video showing a wet McCreery on the beach immediately following his ocean dip (Jan. 24, 2016 5:55 PM): (Twitter video available at this link)

Proof of @ScottyMcCreery coming out of the water. man of his word

McCreery’s comments about the plunge, as written on Twitter (Jan. 24, 2016 5:45 PM):  That was cold.
