It’s that time of year for me to lose big again. Well big, by my standards. This week the office Super Bowl pool is being tossed around. I'm usually able to exercise some semblance of will power and buy just one box. Of course once Friday rolls around I tend to breakdown and uncontrollably snag the rest of the blank squares. Last year I was the proud owner of 18 losing boxes. Some "1 boxer" from accounting took 2 out of the 4 quarters. My other stupid thing is I have Super Box Blindness. For the life of me I can never seem to choose a box that’s in a totally different (vertical and horizontal) row from my other picks.

This year I'm tempted to F-it all and take my chances on some of the stranger (yet CAN'T LOSE) bets being offered by Vegas and online bookies. Here's the line on the odd odds, courtesy of and bodog.

How long will it take Carrie Underwood to sing the national anthem?
Over/under is set at 1:42

Color of Gatorade dumped on the winning coach.
Yellow 1/1
Clear Water 7/5
Red 25/2

Will a member of The Who smash a guitar?
Yes (+135) / No (-165)

How many times will Kimmy K. be flashed on screen?
Site refused to report the odds on this one.


Number of times Archie Manning will be shown during the game.
Oddsmakers are saying 2.5

First sideline reporter to appear after kickoff.
Front-runners are Solomon Wilcots and Steve Tasker.

How many times will CBS show Bourbon Street during the game.
Total is set at 2 and the over is -110.

  1. Those are some tough bets. I think they'll show Archie Manning way more than they're offering and I have a feeling there will be no smashed guitars.

  2. Thanks for sharing your info. I really appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting for your further write ups thanks once again.
