Angel Wins Super Bowl Squares!

Pre Game


Years ago, I entered a Super Bowl squares contest, and won the final prize on my first try. Strangely enough, I won again the next year too!  The square that matches the last digit of the score for each team is the winner, one for each game quarter, and a person puts in money for each square that they complete.

3rd time was not the charm, and due to office rules against betting on company property, etc., such games have all but disappeared.  Therefore, I began making my own squares, with myself and The Hubby, and all felines living at Eastside Cats.

The last two years running, Chucky won.  So, it just seemed right for his sister Angel to win this time.  The Hubby won one quarter, as usual, and I won NUTHIN'!  I haven't won a thing since those first two times.

The contest is just for fun, and it helps make an often boring game more enjoyable.  Professional football claims to be a big deal here in America, but the N.F.L. lost me as a fan awhile ago...read: Vicktory Dogs.  The Hubby was raised on football, baseball, basketball, etc., so I spent a few hours working a crossword puzzle, a sudoku puzzle, and filling in squares as each quarter ended.

No money is involved; it's just for show...and bragging rights before next year's game!

  1. Way to go, Angel! Around here, we don't watch the Super Bowl. We focus all of our attention on the Kitten Bowl and Puppy Bowl. That's our kind of game!

  7. Well, even though there's no money involved, there should be TREATS! Good for you, Angel! Here we don't care about the Super Bowl ever since we realized there was no food in it.

  10. Yay for Angel for the win! It sounds like fun game. We don't watch football (or any sports) here. It's much more fun to watch kitties run around, isn't it? :-)
