Place your bets!
Now that I am back in a state where gambling is an accepted social norm, I can’t wait to place my bets! But who knew there were SOOO many things other than just who wins the big game to bet on! We all know you can bet on the coin toss, the first touchdown, the first kick, statistical events, etc. etc. But I’ve now learned of a few other fun ones…
- How many times will “Harbaugh” be said during the game?
- Who will be mentioned more by full name during the game?
- How long will the postgame handshake or hug last between the brothers?
- Will either Jack or Jackie Harbaugh (father and mother) be shown wearing a 49ers or Ravens logo at any time during the game?
- Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the Game thank first?
And my favorite...
- What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?
The bets also go beyond the game to the entertainment!
- How long will it take Alicia Keys to sing the US National Anthem?
- Will Alicia Keys be booed during or after her rendition of the US National Anthem?
- Will Beyonce's hair be Curly/Crimped OR Straight at the beginning of the Super Bowl Halftime show?
- Will Beyonce be joined on stage by Jay Z during the half time show?
And if you though any of those were odd, check out some of these…
- Will any Baltimore of San Francisco Player on active roster be arrested before Super Bowl XLVII?
- What will happen with the Dow Jones the day after the Super Bowl?
- What will be the highest tweet per second during the Super Bowl?
- Who will Barack Obama pick to win the game?
I think he is a smart man and will pick the 49ers :)
Now to see if I have enough dollar bills to even begin betting on the only day of the year this silliness is allowed…
