And The Winner Is...

The Eastside Cats 2019 Super Bowl Squares
Paddy O'Malley: "I'm the CHAMPION!...wait, what did I win?"
Cat Mama: "Glory!"
Paddy O'Malley: "Harumph!  I think some snacks should be involved!"
Cat Mama: "We'll see what we can do, Your Majesty!"

Every year, I pull together 'betting squares' to the Super Bowl football game, whether I actually watch it or not.  If we were really betting hard, cold cash, each person would put in $10 or $20 a square, then whomever's square had the score for the end of each quarter would win 25% of the pot.  It's just a tidbit of fun, especially if the game proves to be boring.  Last night, I only watched intermittently, relying on The Hubby to keep me updated.  I think he was a bit miffed that he didn't 'win', but at least he scored one quarter!  Although an unpopular choice, the team I wanted to win did so, so there's that frisson of positiveness to enjoy.
