Reverse keeper eats meat pie on sidelines in betting stunt
LONDON - A 45-year-old backup goalkeeper used his team’s big moment against Arsenal to take part in a betting stunt.
A British newspaper’s betting company, which sponsored Sutton United for the game, had 8-1 odds that overweight reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw would eat a meat pie during Monday’s FA Cup match.
After Sutton had used all its substitutions and there was no chance Shaw would appear in the 2-0 loss to Arsenal, he munched on the pie while sitting on the bench. The footage of Shaw eating was broadcast on the BBC.
