Video: Josh Donaldson Bought His Mom a Maserati After She Quit Smoking on a Bet

People can quit smoking in numerous ways, but free-agent third baseman Josh Donaldson added giving away a new Maserati after his mother, Lisa French, kicked the habit, per Gradick Sports:

....

A promise of a Maserati is a fairly strong incentive to stop smoking and likely more powerful than nicotine patches, but credit to French for getting the job done and winning a brand-new car in the process.

St. Louis therapy dog makes good on NLCS wager, reps Nationals gear

Friendly wagers are one of the best parts of sports. They’re even more fun when they involve two very good boys.

Thor, a black lab therapy dog from Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, challenged Tabby, a German Shepherd therapy dog at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., to a friendly bet on the Nats-Cardinals NLCS best of seven series. The bet was settled not too long after it began.

Since the Nationals swept the Cardinals, Thor had to wear a Nationals’ bandana to work, courtesy of Tabby.

Sports bets gone haywire- they’re not just for humans!
