LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KMOX) – He’s not just a Grammy-winning rapper. Nelly is also a die-hard Cardinals fan.
Tonight, he will return to “The Arsenio Hall Show” to collect on a sports bet he made last Tuesday when the Dodgers and the Cardinals were facing off in the NLCS.
Arsenio bet Nelly that if the Dodgers won the NLCS, Nelly would have to perform his breakout hit “Country Grammar” wearing a Dodgers jersey. Nelly agreed only if it was a Jackie Robinson jersey.
Arsenio then agreed to wear a Cardinals jersey if the Redbirds won the National League Championship Series and they did.
(Bet is made about 1:35 in)
So tonight at 11:00 p.m. on the “The Arsenio Hall Show” on Fox, Nelly is coming back.
Arsenio is supposed to wear an Ozzie Smith Cardinals Jersey and perform Nelly’s song, “Country Grammar.”
Arsenio is friends with Dodgers minority owner, Magic Johnson.
Nelly often references St. Louis and the Cardinals in his music and national appearances.
