You know how the bowl season goes around Christmas, you see Western Kentucky, the team you meant to bet on but lost out on betting on because you were too busy with family events, is up 49-14 at the end of the third quarter. So you curse your bad luck for not getting the bet in but figure it’s okay to get both boys down for a Christmas Eve nap before you head out to the mall and get driven insane by holiday shoppers. So you get both boys down, turn off your phone, and then turn it back on just in time to see that Central Michigan scored 28 consecutive points and then had one play left down seven points.
Then this happened.
CMU went for two, didn’t convernt, and Western Kentucky won its first ever bowl game 49-48. Congrats to the Hilltoppers, but this would have been the worst beat ever.
I’m so glad I didn’t get that bet in.
