Wanna Bet?

Today is Superbowl Sunday.  
 I have my sausages in the crock pot and am making homemade  rolls in my new hot dog bun pan  (got it for Christmas--this is the first time it's being used.  Hopefully the buns will turn out and I can blog about them tomorrow),  I have my queso dip started and am ready to watch all the commercials!  Wooooo!!!

But I kinda want to run down to the casino and make a bet.

I'm not a gambler....

.....even tho we have a slot machine in our garage. 
The Handyman LOVES it and plays it every evening for a few minutes.
It's weird to me, because he can only win back his own money...but if it makes him happy. (?)

Anyway, I am not a gambler.  I have no desire AT ALL to sit and put my money in a slot machine.  There was a comedian who said one time, it was like driving down the street and throwing quarters out your car window.  It's kinda like that for me...what's the point?
But the Handyman brought home a sheet from the Sports Book of all the things one can bet on this Superbowl.

You can bet on:
The team to score 1st in the game
The team to score 1st in the 2nd half of the game
The team to score first in the 3rd quarter of the game
The team to score last in the game
The team to score last in the 1st half of the game
The team  who will win the coin toss
The team to make the longest field goal
The team to make the 1st punt
The team to make the last punt
The team to punt the most times
The team to make the 1st sack
Who will throw more interceptions
Who will throw more TD passes
Will the team that scores the 1st touchdown win the game
Will there be a safety
Will there be overtime
Will NYG score in every quarter
Team to commit the 1st penalty of the game
Player with the 1st touchdown Jersey--will it be even or odd number

I could go on and on.  You can bet on  just about anything  (even  a half-time wardrobe malfunction) that might happen at the Superbowl.
These kind of bets seem so much more fun to me that who wins or who loses.
I might go down just for fun and bet on who will score the last TD in the game.

We went to a Superbowl party last year where everyone picked items like those and lottery tickets were given to the winners. I won a ticket but, of course, it wasn't worth anything. I'm not a gambler either.

Well, I won't bet on the game but I bet your rolls will be amazing. There's nothing like the aroma of bread baking.

Have a wonderful day. Don't bet it all away.

Well, you could look at it like the Handyman can only win back his own money -or- that he never really loses! Haha! I'm not a gambler either. It's boring to me. Put a $20 bill in the machine then sit there and push a button until it's all gone. Wheee!
