A Miami radio host lost a bet about Christian Yelich and now he might literally eat a crow
We've all heard the phrase "eat crow" before. It's a metaphorical consequence of being wrong about something - like, for example, when Miami-area radio host Brendan Tobin said he'd "eat crow" if Christian Yelich hit 20 home runs this season.
OK, that's not quite correct. He added an important word to the phrase, and said he'd literally eat crow if Yelich was able to finish the year with 20 dingers. So … guess what happened during the Nationals-Marlins game on Wednesday? Sure, Miami may have lost, 8-3, but Yelich got No. 20:
Tobin's response after the homer was elegant and succinct.

Yelich, for his part, thinks it's all in good fun. As he told MLB.com's Joe Frisaro:
Will he actually eat a crow? How would a person even go about doing that? We have so many questions, and sort of hope we never find out the answers to any of them.
