“Big Game” Football Fun: Prop Bets
Chances are, your favorite NFL team will make it to the championship game every year. If that is the case, sometimes it can make you not as enthusiastic about the game as you would be.
My brother and I are Colts fans. So when they made it to the "big dance" back in 2007, we were stoked. My nephew was still "cooking" in the womb during the game and my brother made the bet with his buddies that "If the Colts win the game, I will name my kid Peyton." Fast forward 6 weeks and I found myself with a nephew named Peyton.
That may seem a little extreme for proposition bets. But last year during the Packers vs Steelers game, I wasn't too thrilled to see either team play. So I decided to jump online and fool around with some proposition bets. For example, I put $50 on the bet that Christina Aguilera would take longer than 2:30min to sing the National Anthem. I was screaming louder at the TV during that portion of the game than the actual main event. If you remember back to the game last year. You may remember that Christina forgot an entire line of our nations anthem. Making me loss the bet. F&$K!!!!!!
