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.
