Super Bowl Squares (1 Viewer)

I got royally boned. Got a 2 on Seattle's side and a 5 on Pittsburgh's side. :X

Could not have gotten a much worse draw than that. I have virtually no shot to win before the game even starts. Only chance I really have is a 42-35 Seattle win. :bag:

Last year, I caught the 3/7 slot. One of the best combination of numbers you can get, and I still didn't win crap. :hot:

Funny story: Several of my buddies are at my house to watch Super Bowl XXIII between the 49ers and Bengals. With 0:50 left in the 3rd quarter, San Francisco's Mike Cofer kicks a FG to tie the game, 6-6. My buddy Jim has the 6/6 squares, and he starts dancing around, busting everyone's balls, figuring he has $200 (or whatever it was) coming to him. As he's mouthing off with his back to the TV, Cincinnati's Stanford Jennings is returning the kickoff 93 yards for a TD.

End of the 3rd Q -- Cincinnati 13, San Francisco 6

His face dropped like someone shot his dog. To this day, we call him "Stanford"....

:lmao:

None here. :cry: I'm going to stop by a few bars around town later on and see if they have anything going on.Anyone want to set up an online square pool and paypall some money around?

 
Just in case the I.R.S. is watching I'll say there's "no money" involved in the pools I'm in,just for fun,maybe a cup of coffee on the line. ;)

Two pools:

First one is each quarter:

1st-Seattle-7

Pittsburgh-1

2nd-Seattle-1

Pittsburgh-0

3rd-Seattle-6

Pittsburgh-6

4th-Seattle-6

Pittsburgh-2

2nd pool is halftime and final:

Halftime-Seattle-0

Pittsburgh-1

Final-Seattle-9

Pittsburgh-1

I've hit a few of these over the years,the most recent was New England and Carolina,had 0-0 for the first quarter. But the most satisfying was when MY Giants played Denver in '87. Had the same numbers for halftime and final Giants-9 Broncos-0. I saw the nines and said fat chance. G-Men get a SAFETY in the second quarter and trail at halftime 10-9! Then Karliss misses TWO chip-shot field goals and Denver gets an"oh bye the way" late TD to make the final Giants-39 Denver 20. Your team wins the Super Bowl AND you collect two,uh,cups of coffee,never forget that one!

QUICK HI-JACK

My buddy is in a contest.

$2000 a square !! wow !!!

Anyway, he bought 2 squares and one of them is PItt 7 Sea 4.

I told him, man, that square should be worth about $5 grand.

He said, "I'll sell you 10% for $500."

It works like this...

EACH SCORING CHANGE IS WORTH $6 GRAND.

So a TD scored is 6-0, then 7-0, BOTH WIN 6 GRAND.

Whatever is left goes to the final score. Usually around $100 grand.

Would you buy 10% of that square ??

 
Seattle - 0

Pittsburgh - 4

Hmmm, a 24-20 Pittsburgh victory would make me, Vegas and bookies around the globe very happy.

 
My worst square moment was the Dallas Buffalo Super Bowl when big (idiot) Leon Lett grabbed the fumble and started rambling in for the TD. If he had scored (and assuming Dallas made the xtra point) I'd have won $2,500 bucks. I was screaming like a fool while he was running it in. Then that #@!$$% Beebe knocks it out from behind at the 2 yard line and it goes through the endzone, touchback Buff. Man I was PISSED!
