A 27-year-old Vero Beach man lit his Dallas Cowboys jersey on fire Sunday after losing a bet to his wife - but he set the shirt alight while he was still wearing it, Sebastian Daily reported.

Police spoke to the couple at the hospital who admitted they'd burn the jersey of the losing team.

For some reason, a Florida couple decided to make a Packers-Cowboys bet that involved burning the losing team's jersey. However, the man made a decision to wear the jersey as it was burning.

"I don't believe we've ever had a case where someone set another person's jersey on fire as a result of a sporting bet", Raulen said.
