It’s happened again, Canada! For the second year in a row, a Canadian sports team has earned a spot in the playoffs and we couldn’t be happier. And, just like with last October’s Blue Jays, Americans are underestimating Canada’s team. One Toronto Raptors hater in particular had to eat his words (literally) after he vowed to eat his phone if the Raptors were able to win two games against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Well, Monday night (May 23), the Raps did win their second game in T.O. to tie the NBA’s Eastern Conference series against the Cavs. Great news for all of us Toronto fans! But not-so-great news for the guy who pledged to eat his phone if this very scenario played out.

The thing about social media is that people tend to hold you to your word, even (and especially) if it’s ridiculous. So, naturally, Canadian Twitter users were not about to let this slide. We needed to see some follow-through for underestimating our team.

But Kazeem was willing to admit defeat, acknowledging he owed the internet a phone stir-fry recipe.

And he delivered. After a little confusion about how to document the event with the phone he would be cooking, he gave Twitter a step-by-step look at his dinner preparations.

And then, the moment of truth:

No footage of the actual act of consumption, but we’re assuming that’s just because the phone didn’t work after being cooked. Seeing as he went to the trouble of cooking the rice, we’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he kept his word and ate it.

Maybe next time people won’t be so quick to count out our Toronto sports teams. #WeTheNorth

The Raps play game 5 of the Eastern Conference series on May 25, catch it on TSN at 8:30 p.m. [ET].
