LYONS HALL — Tomorrow, Quincy Fitzgerald (CSOM ‘20) will submit a withdrawal form to Boston College Student Services after losing a game of odds, 1 to 1000.
Fitzgerald and his roommates, Corbin Godfrey (CSOM ‘20) and Preston Graham (LSOE ‘20), hosted a pre-game at their house on Foster Street this past Saturday, and as the evening progressed, Fitzgerald reportedly expressed feeling like “the king of the fucking world,” and that “nothing could stop him.” One guest, later identified as Jake Gabe Clark III (MCAS ‘21), began to taunt Fitzgerald by continuously engaging him in odds.
The first dare was to urinate off the side of the balcony, 1 in 20. Fitzgerald won.
The second dare was to eat eight Kraft Singles, 1 in 75. Fitzgerald lost.
There are several reports that at this point, his roommates encouraged him not to continue gambling, to which Fitzgerald replied, “Never back down from a challenge, my man. The weak will smell it.”
For the third and final dare, Clark asked Fitzgerald the odds of him dropping out of Boston College. He answered 1 in 1000.
“3, 2, 1… 764.” The numbers were announced simultaneously, and the crowd groaned.
“You hate to see it,” said Hannah Opal (MCAS ‘20). “Quincy’s a good guy, but you have to respect the results of odds.”
In an interview on Monday, Fitzgerald says that he regrets nothing. “I’m not a loser, baby. Remember that. Make sure they all remember that. Besides, I’ve always wanted to go to Villanova.”
At press time, Fitzgerald’s parents could not be reached for comment
