    I usually stay out of stuff like this just because I never win anything that involves luck. But i put down a few dollars on the block pools on the Superbowl in my local drinking establishment. So I went in yesterday after work to attempt to drink my way back to sanity when my friendly bartender says "Hey, I have a couple envelopes for you."

    He hands me the envelopes, each containg $150. I won both the halftime block pool and the final score block pool! I spent 10 bucks to win 300, sounds like a good deal to me.

    Anyone else win on the game?

    Congrats PK! I play in the office pools each year. Twenty bucks each for the AFC and NFC championships and twenty more for the SB. No luck this year. Maybe next.

    I had £2 on Southampton 0 - 1 Derby, Stevie Howard to score (last Sat) at 35-1. Netted me £70 when the result popped up

    I once won a local road 10k race too, which was much more satisfying, even if the financial reward was less.

    I won a tournie on rhp too.

    I'm a winner!

    I might have won 25$ in a pool if Rex Grossman hadn't thrown those two interceptions, one for a touchdown.

    A mate of mine once won 1500 quid for a fiver stake by predicting correctly 5 away results.... me? Never won a bloody thing except a dose off a slapper a few years ago!
