White Sox pitcher John Danks showed up for warmups before Friday’s game against the Twins dressed up like a leprechaun. Shockingly, this was not done of his own volition.

No, this was the product of a bet. Danks had made a wager with White Sox broadcaster Ed Farmer on last Saturday’s Texas-Notre Dame game. John (mis)placed his faith in Texas and when the Longhorns lost to the Fighting Irish by a score of 38-3 his fitting punishment was to don a leprechaun costume for warm ups.

The White Sox Twitter account made sure that Danks outfit wouldn’t go unnoticed.

Still, one has to applaud Danks for coming through so quickly and not stalling until the end of October to fulfill his bet.
