Let me set the stage for what you’re about to witness.
Ben Mintz, AKA Bayou Ben, AKA Barstool Mintzy is the “King of College Baseball” at the Barstool headquarters. The man that Dave Portnoy (Barstool El Presidente) turns to for yearly advice on the happenings of the CWS, for fandom and gambling purposes.
This postseason…well…hasn’t gone well for Ol’ Mintzy.
Heading into the Super Regionals, Mintzy convinced everyone that Arkansas was the team to beat. After Dave Portnoy bought $300 worth of Razorbacks swag, the Wolfpack outran the Kopps and Arkansas was donzo.
He then picked Vanderbilt to win it all. (Technically, still TBD)
Then Mintzy picked Stanford to beat State…nope
Once again, he bet against State in the Vanderbilt game…whoops
But here is where we’ve arrived at the crucial moment of live social media perfection. As if the Gods of Baseball were drinking with the Gods of Humor, this happens. While talking about Leiter’s perfect game and how the next run would be the winner, we witness in real-time a man’s soul get sucked from his body. The look of disbelief as even he knows, he’s in the worst gambling streak of all-time. Enjoy.
Still in shock over this vid. Mintz has lost like 40 straight games. Vandy is his pick to win it all. Jack Leiter was throwing a perfect game. Mintzy basically says 1st run wins. Before he can finish sentence guy hits 700 ft bomb for only run of game pic.twitter.com/L6AQsXY09c
