The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears have long had one of the NFL’s best rivalries, but at times, the rivalry has been taken to a whole different level by the fans of both teams. It got taken to a whole new level Monday night after the Bears went into Green Bay and upset the Packers.
Not many people saw that coming, and while it mostly was due to Aaron Rodgers being knocked out of the game on the first offensive series of the game, a win is a win and a bet is a bet and must be honored.
One Wisconsin couple made a bet that was as crazy as you’ll read about.
John Grant, 42, of Tinley Park, Ill., told police that he and his wife made the wager as they watched the game at a bar in Mayville, Wis., but his wife told police that she didn’t think her husband would follow through with it.
After the Bears beat the Packers 27-20, Grant and his wife, who police say had both been drinking, went outside to an alley next to the bar to smoke cigarettes. Grant tasered his wife twice in the buttocks while she filmed it with her cellphone camera.
Mayville police chief Christopher MacNeill said the woman was laughing during the first two taserings caught on video, but when Grant tasered her a third time in the thigh, this time not on video, she apparently considered that over the line. An argument ensued that led to the woman calling the police.
“You can’t make this stuff up,” MacNeill said. “It takes the rivalry to a whole new level.”
