Silyers said he grabbed the jersey with his right arm and attempted to put the flaming jersey on.
A man in Vero Beach burns himself after setting his losing jersey on fire.
After the Packers won 35-31, Hook and Silyers went outside and lit Silyers' Cowboys jersey on fire. Family members rushed him to the hospital where he was treated for third-degree burns on his right arm and hand and second-degree burns on his back.
While this man certainly proved that he has a burning passion for his team, perhaps next time Salyers and Hook should consider a friendly wager or perhaps eschew gambling all together.
Following the Cowboys loss to the Packers Sunday night, a witness told the Sebastian Daily, the jersey burning happened as a result of a lost bet.
But if there's one thing you can say about this guy, he stands behind the team he backs and he's a man of his word. The most obvious of which are to not make bets that involve fire, and don't actually go through with a bet that involves fire if you lose the bet.
If the Cowboys are willing to light themselves on fire by giving Aaron Rodgers the ball with a minute left on the clock anda timeout to burn, then this guy is going to do the same for his squad.
