Yesterday we pointed out to thousands of BSR readers that WTAE TV in Pittsburgh lost a bet to WBAL in Baltimore on the Ravens-Steelers game.  The WTAE morning show was supposed to wear purple and only one of their three news anchors actually did.  Sports anchor John Meyer had heavier things on his mind than paying up on the bet.  He laughed about the “purple pinstripes” he supposedly had in his suit jacket.

@BalSportsReport@wbaltv11 I wore purple pin stripes on Monday. I held up to my end of the bet

Our awesome BSR readers sent emails to WTAE and tweeted to Meyer.  One of our readers forwarded us an email they got back from the Pittsburgh sportscaster.

Thank you for writing. I was laughing at the fact that you could barely see my purple pin stripes but I assure you, they were there. I don’t have any purple shirts or else I would have worn one.

Hats off to your Ravens on a VERY well played game.

Sports Anchor/Reporter

If Meyer doesn’t have purple, maybe we should send him some!

Meyer tweeted to BSR yesterday essentially saying the same thing.
