West Coast Craig’s Super Bowl Prop-nications

What, no Patriots bling?

Cayman Islands–Hip Hop entrepreneur Birdman made a little news this week by saying he was putting a $5 million bet on the Patriots this Sunday. I don’t know if he’s still in Alcatraz or not, but that’s just silly, even rude…and yes, wimpy. If he was really a gambling man, I think he should be dropping that kind of change on whether Kelly Clarkson’s National Anthem lasts longer than 1:34 (-120).

Here at  MtM (I’m sticking with the little “t,” I think “MTM” already belongs to Mary Tyler Moore), where that kind of chump change is laughed at (and then wept over), The Public Professor has ably taken over Rex O’Rourke’s role in prognosticating NFL winners, and Different Matt has long used his bi-Friday post to make his own predictions for the weekends, but so far this year I believe nobody’s touched upon the thing that makes gambling such idiotic fun, the Prop Bets. If I’m not mistaken (-210) I think our man Diff did something like this last year, but he’s not due back behind the keyboard until well after the Big Game (tBG), so I’m here to step in and deliver some new prop-nications of my own:

"Wait what...somebody's using a big "T" in their abbreviation?"

What Color Gatorade will be Poured on the Winning Coach:

Green +600

None (The Players Will Have Drank It All) +10000

Which will be Longer:

Green (from eating grilled asparagus with the pork bomb) -150
Red (I should go to the hospital) -1000

Number of Dumb Things Joe Buck says during Telecast:
Over 15 -300

Number of People who actually hear him Say those Dumb Things since the Game is on NBC, not Fox:
Over 10 -300
