Credit to Michael Cerami for standing by his word. The Cubs fan and writer said he would jump into Lake Michigan if leadoff hitter Ian Happ opened the season with a home run, and once the dinger of destiny happened, he didn’t waste much time scrambling out to the beach for a chilly swim.

If Ian Happ leads off today's game with a home run, I will jump in Lake Michigan later today.— Michael Cerami (@Michael_Cerami) March 29, 2018
I'M ALREADY REGRETTING THIS.— Michael Cerami (@Michael_Cerami) March 29, 2018
Ian Happ himself approves:
Just a few hours into the season and the Cubs are already helping people create magic.
