Hehe...yeah, I saw that. I was just trying to look into the whole "Disney World thing" Apparently it's a tradition that started back with Phil Simms? (From what I've found so far). And yes, I'm sure there is some sort of contract and major money involved.
I've heard it many times, but I'm not so sure I ever knew they actually went! Figured they just had to say it after the game and it was a done deal. Pretty lame tradition.
What a life huh? Two time Super Bowl MVP now. Major money, cars, women... I've got to tell you though. If I had a choice between being Eli Manning right now, but giving up the trophy I won here, it would be a tough decision. -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
How'd you like to be this guy? Bets $1,000 at 50-1 the first score would be a Giant safety...and wins a cool 50 grand. ------------------------------------
Bettors in Nevada wagered upwards of $93.8 million on Super Bowl XLVI in hopes of striking it rich, and 28-year-old Jona Rechnitz, owner of JSR Capital in New York, was fortunate to live every gambler's dream.
At the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Rechnitz bet $1,000 at 50-to-1 odds that the first score of Super Bowl XLVI would be a Giants safety. "My friends thought I was crazy," Rechnitz told Page 2. "To be honest, I actually thought I was crazy, too."
And he's donating it to charity. Lucky and generous.

On another note. Man, Welker and others are catching hell around here...everywhere I look. Even on Woot! yesterday, they had a Pioneer 5.1 Channel A/V Receiver for sale. Some of the comments in the discussion from members were funny as hell. Like: "Boy, the Patriots could have used a few of these". "Oh, wait...never mind, that's a different kind of receiver"
And: "I hope Wes Welker doesn't buy one of these. He'd probably drop it". lol -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
The weird thing is, I don't think it was all Welker's fault. It looked to me like a pretty bad pass, behind and above him. Welker could have caught it if it was thrown a little better. -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H. L. Mencken
Oh, I agree completely the pass sucked. But Welker is so good, he catches that 99 out of 100 times when he's got both hands anywhere near it. He's just become the fall guy, unfortunately for him. Brady was out of rhythm...he threw several lousy passes that were dropped. Yeah, they could have and should have been caught, but he could have made it a lot easier to catch them too. I love it! -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
Yeah, I think you're right. I remember a ref leaning over him. Of course, you couldn't hear what he was saying to Brady. But I figure it was either: "Are you ok?" Or: "Nice pass, dumbass". -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
I think it was Pierre-Paul who dumped him, and then he stayed down "Bradying" and the Ref walked over and extended a hand and said "you suck today, Tom." -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H. L. Mencken
