A BIG Bash supporter has been left with his pants down following Hobart Hurricanes’ epic win over the Melbourne Renegades on Thursday night.
Local Burnie footballer Brayden Hayes will be forced to run from Hobart to his hometown of Burnie — a 325km trip — in nothing but underwear following an ill-fated social media post.
As the Renegades surged to a Big Bash record score of 222, Hayes posted to Facebook: “If Renegades lose this I will run from Hobart to Burnie in my undies for charity”.
The post attracted almost 700 likes, 130 shares and 180 comments.
“I am a man of my word,” he told The Advocate.
“I think it will be seven or eight days at 40 kilometres a day,” he said.
The Hurricanes have insisted he wear purple jocks – their team colour.
“I will have to get some decent ones made up so it is nicely tucked in,” he said.
“I might need six or seven pairs to split it over the days.”
The TAB and Triple M have already offered money, which Hayes plans to donate to support of motor neuron disease sufferers.
“The finish line will be Mount Street, maybe McDonald’s so I can get myself a cheeseburger or I might try and make the Beach Hotel and grab a beer,” he said.
