Superbowl Winner

This year's Superbowl winner was me! Not literally of course. Although I think I could rock the tight shorts... But I digress.

We watched the game with JM's family. They do $.25 bets on each quarter of the game. Everyone puts in a guess for what the combined score will be at the end of the quarter. The person with the closest guess without going over wins the money from that quarter. I won the first and second quarters! My first quarter guess was 0; the actual combined score was 3. When placing my bet for the second quarter, I first said 7. My Bro-in-law, who was taking the bets, tried to explain to me that it would be nearly impossible to get a combined score of 7. I decided since I went low the first quarter, I would guess high on the second and went with 21. There was more rolling of the eyes that 21 would be a difficult score to achieve due to rules and stuff. Whatever.

But when that last second touchdown pushed the 2nd quarter score to 24, I won again! I lost 3rd quarter, which is also when we left to go home. BG was getting tired and had had plenty of excitement for one day. Did anyone else have a party or win their own pot of quarters? Mine winnings totaled $4.50. Oh yeah! Living the high life.

Looks like somebody's got a big shopping spree coming up at the dollar store - that's like, 4 1/2 quality picture frames and ironing board covers!! I'm so jealous!

Man...My family missed the boat. That sounds like a nice way to make the game interesting.
But if you head to the dollar store just be sure to use the money for some quality pregnancy tests!

when someone asks what you're going to do now, make sure to say "i'm going to disneyland!"

I hope you plan on reporting your winnings to you local church leaders. :)
And I totally had a party, if by party, you mean a nap.

Good for you!

Last year, my husband played the brackets in March Madness. He doesn't know basketball AT ALL and just completely guessed. He won...out of 55 people who played at his work!

I didn't understand any part of this post. Football confuses me.

I was bored through the first half and ended up studying, but I'm super glad you made some serious cash! WooHoo!!!!
