Cubs reporter jumps in Lake Michigan to fulfill promise after Ian Happ's home run

Ian Happ hit a home run to start the MLB season, and it was bad news for Cubs reporter Michael Cerami.

Michael Cerami is a Cubs reporter at Bleacher Nation, and before today's game against the Marlins he tweeted something he would soon regret.

On the very first pitch of the MLB season, Ian Happ hit a home run. Most baseball fans were celebrating because it was a great way to start off Opening Day, but Cermani was having the complete opposite feeling.

But even though Cermani wasn't looking forward to the moment, he was a man of his word and delivered on his promise.

He probably didn't enjoy that too much, but we certainly did.
