With lost bet, man's TV becomes victim of gun shots

The New Orleans Saints' dramatic come-from-behind overtime win Sunday over the Washington Redskins cost an Albany, La., man a television -- his 60-inch, high-definition, flat-screen TV!

Wayne Spring told his friends that if the Saints won, they could come over to his house and shoot his television.

As soon as the game ended, after the Saints' kicked a game-winning field goal, Spring said his phone started ringing. About a dozen gun-toting friends then came over and shot up Spring's TV in the back yard.

But the event turned Spring into an Internet star. He posted video of his TV being shot at on YouTube and received more than 145,00o hits in 3 days.

Albany is located about 50 miles northwest of New Orleans.
