A radio personality in Cleveland, Ohio just got a large dose of reality.
For weeks, ESPN Cleveland radio personality Aaron Goldhammer has been promising his listeners that he will eat horse poop if the Browns drafted Baker Mayfield as their first pick. Everybody seemed pretty confident hed never actually have to eat horse poop because there was no way the Browns wanted Mayfield. It just wasnt going to happen. With prospects like Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and maybe even Josh Allen, it didnt seem logical that the Browns would draft Mayfield.
Goldhammer was so sure of this, he gloated about his promise just hours before the draft.

But this is the Browns. Theyre not logical. Theyre the two-year-olds of the NFL. You tell them not to do something and they immediately go and do that thing.
And so here we are:

Now when this happened, Twitter erupted. And rightfully so. Goldhammer got dozens of questions about the status of his horse poop eating promise and whether it would hold true.
So late last night, Goldhammer announced he would fulfill his promise and eat horse poop — at a later date.

Im excited to see how this shakes out. Hopefully it lives up to the hype and rivals the time that Eagles fan ate horse poop.
