Tattoo bets are no joke.

Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta is about to find that out.

TCU, the 30-year-old ace’s former school, lost its chance to reach the College World Series finals after losing Saturday night’s game to Coastal Carolina, 7-5.

According to’s Jesse Rogers, Arrieta lost a bet to former Chanticleer and current teammate Tommy La Stella.

“So happy for those kids,” said La Stella, per Rogers. “When we get back to Chicago, we’ll get him [Arrieta] tatted up for life.”

Surely, they’ll document this process, right?

“If it’s a body part that’s visually acceptable, absolutely,” La Stella said.

TCU defeated Coastal Carolina earlier in the week, however, which will force La Stella to dress up as the Horned Frogs mascot.
