The only thing better than a chicken nugget is a free chicken nugget.
And the only thing better than a free chicken nugget is eating it while watching the Phillies beat up on the Dodgers for a second-straight game.
A bunch of kids had that pleasure Tuesday night, thanks to a Phils fan who lost an online wager:
If Hoskins goes yard tonight I'll buy everyone chicken nuggets

Damon Miller Jr. made his bet last Thursday, which held up for all of two innings. Rhys Hoskins belted a 91 MPH fast ball out of the park in the bottom of the second, good for his 18th homer in 34 games. The Phils won 10-0.
So Miller was now on the hook for nuggets, but the wager language was vague. Who is “everyone?” Does the entire stadium get nuggets? Are they coming from Chick-fil-A or Wendy’s or what?
I'm done making bets. Rip wallet https://t.co/UOtzLHgnqN

Unlike overly-political celebrities, or that guy who promises to tattoo (subject) on his ass if (team) wins or loses a game, Miller actually followed through with some help from the Phillies. The team bought 50 boxes of McDonald’s nuggs and had Miller hand them out at the first base gate.

Miller spoke with The Good Phight about his experience:
“(The Phillies) set up the entire thing, which I’m extremely grateful for!”
“I was actually at the game when (Hoskins hit the home run) and my first reaction was I looked at my dad and said DID THAT JUST HAPPEN!? I OWE EVERYONE NUGGETS NOW!”
Good man, much better than Lena Dunham, who said she’d leave the country after Trump won the election. She’s still here.
