Ok guys, I'm officially a genius.

I predicted a 28 point Buc win. They won by 27. Enough said.

Congrats! Are you a TB fan? And if so, how did someone who lives in La Jolla, CA become a Bucs fan?

If you're a genius, you should had guess 27 points, not 28.

I won:
$75 for a Buc win of more than 3 tds (25 for the win, 50 for the margin)
$5 for the coin toss.
$10 for at least 2 tds by the Bucs defense.

Don't worry. You're not the only loser. There are 3 more losers...

Would appreciate an answer. I guess it must've been fun on that bandwagon

Ok I moved to La Jolla, near San Diego this year for college. I was living in Orange County before and we didn't have a team. Derrick Brooks is my favorite NFL player so his team is MY team.

Last time I was at Vegas, I played roulette. I bet on 11, and the ball stopped on 12. The dealer told me I must be a genius.

Seriously, what is the obsession with betting on the coin toss? Soon enough you'll be betting on if all the halftime musicians lip-sync or not (Shania did...bad Shania!), how many times Madden says "Boom!" and how many quips Al Michaels gives out. It's just crazy to bet on a coin toss...heh.
