Arsenio will pay off Cardinals bet with Nelly tonight

Arsenio will pay off Cardinals bet with Nelly tonight


Arsenio Hall was so sure the Los Angeles Dodgers would beat the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series, he goaded St. Louis native and rap star Nelly into a bet.

If the Dodgers won, Nelly would have to come back to the show and sing Nelly's "Country Grammar" while wearing a Dodgers uniform.

But if the Cardinals won, Hall would put on a Cardinals jersey to sing the song. "You have to be Ozzie Smith," Nelly specified.

Watch clips as the bet is made on the Oct. 15 episode. The segment begins at about 1:35.

We all know how things worked out, and Hall will pay off the bet on tonight's show (11 p.m. on Channel 2). Nelly will be on hand to watch Hall perform live.

That could be as ugly as the Dodgers' 9-0 drubbing by the Cardinals Friday night.
