With the Colorado Rapids heading to Seattle for a game against the Sounders this weekend, it’s time for Rapids defender, Shane O’Neill to pay up.

It all started with a friendly wager on the Super Bowl as Colorado homegrown player, O’Neill and Seattle homegrown player, DeAndre Yedlin, placed a bet on the big game.  The stakes…if Seattle lost Yedlin would have to eat Rocky Mountain oysters, and if Denver lost O’Neill would be eating a geoduck. “Obviously we know the results,” Yedlin says.

According to the Seattle Times report, Yedlin says he plans to take O’Neill out for the Northwest bivalve on Friday ahead of Saturday’s matchup between the Sounders and the Rapids at CenturyLink Field.
