Ben Spies WSBK post race interview

Does anyone have any idea what Ben was going on about when he said he loved winning bets on TV? There was one word "bleeped", so perhaps he bet someone he would drop an F bomb??????????

I recall a article a few months back that talked about a certain bet, I think it may be the same one. Maybe Tom or someone else can pinpoint the article?

The last bet he "won" on TV that I recall was when he held up a sign that said "Mongo who?"

That was a standing bet with some folks in the WERA organization about Sean P. Clarke... good stuff. Some WERA folks even made up shirts after that had "Mongo who?" on them.

Probably something similar I'd wager, betting that he wouldn't curse on TV is my guess!
