Jim ‘Mattress Mack’ McIngvale has a lot riding on the result of the World Series.
The Houston-area mattress magnate can win a record $75 million payout on his combined bets for the Astros to win it all.
Those bets totaled $10 million of his own money, and while he won’t exactly be out that entire total because of the mattress promotions he runs to cover the expense, the potential payout is nothing to sneeze at.
So, as you can imagine, Mack wasn’t the happiest person in the stands when the Phillies started raining home runs from the skies of Philadelphia in Game 3 on Tuesday.
Cameras caught it all.
Judging by the captions, the first video was recorded in the first inning when Bryce Harper hit an electrifying two-run shot. And the second video was in the fifth inning when Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins went back-to-back.
Four innings apart, and McIngvale’s body language was exactly the same.
He was not in the mood, and who can blame him? The Phillies won 7-0, going deep five times off Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr., who might have been tipping his pitches. Now they’re up 2-1 in the series with the next two games at home.
