Cat Needs More Time to Pay Off Loan Shark
Terry the cat is in deep. Really deep. After his prediction that the Celtics would come back from a three games to none deficit and beat the Knicks in the first round of the NBA playoffs failed to come true, Terry owes about five large to a local moneylender named “The Clamps.”
“After the comeback win in game five, I thought maybe Terry had a chance, but now…? He’s kind of screwed,” said Jason Willis, a friend of Terry’s. “I wish I could help, but I just don’t have that kind of cash.”
Terry has until Friday to pay his loan shark back, with interest, or else things could get ugly.
“They call him ‘The Clamps’ because of how hard he squeezes his customers,” said Willis. “I would not want to be in Terry’s shoes.”
