Timothy Silyers, 27, and Brianna Hook, 22, of Vero Beach made a bet with each other on the Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday, WPLG TV reports.

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.

They both admitted being intoxicated.

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.
