Wiese, a die-hard fan of the Chicago Bears, signed a pledge in front of a crowd at a Decatur bar last Friday night that if the Bears lost Sunday's Super Bowl, he'd change his name to that of the man who led the Indianapolis Colts to victory.
Final Score: Colts 29, Bears 17.
So on Tuesday, Wiese went to the Macon County Courts Facility and started the process of changing his name.
"I made the bet, and now I've got to keep it," said the 26-year-old, who lives in Forsyth, just north of Decatur.

No offense intended, but you folks are amazed and awed by this mans integrity?
There was no 'bet' so to speak, this guy was at a bar, perhaps drinking, I dont know, but anyway he said if the bears lose he would change his name.
His buddies, tired of his outlandish claims, made him sign a pledge, right there on the spot in front of a bar full of witnesses.
After the game one of his friends, a lawyer, filed the paperwork for a change of name.
There was really no 'bet', as he would have gained nothing if the bears would have won.
I also dont think he would be doing this had his friend not filed the paperwork and everybody at his local bar not been a witness to his fanatic behavior.
