Come bet the Super Bowl with a bunch of Big Ten degenerates and one crying Packers fan!

This past week has been a whole hell of a lot of fun for me as all the normies in my life suddenly want to talk about football and get my take on the Super Bowl

hahaha being alive hurts my soul BUT ANYWAY I GOTTA TELL YA, THIS MIGHT BE LOWER SCORING THAN EVERYONE THINKS, THE THING TO WATCH WILL BE KC’S DEFENSIVE STRATEGY, IF THEY CAN GET PRESSURE EARLY THEY COULD PUT IT AWAY IN A HURRY BUT IF NOT IT’LL BE A DOGFIGHT PLEASE LET ME STOP TALKING ABOUT FOOTBALL

That was as brutal as any Packers loss I’ve ever seen and the Super Bowl feels empty and meaningless after the front office, the defensive coordinator, the head coach, Jerome Boger’s team, Kevin King, Chandon Sullivan and to a much lesser extent Aaron Rodgers blew the best shot they’ve had to get to the Super Bowl since they got Jay Cutler in the NFC Championship Game. I hope it gets cancelled. I just don’t want it to happen.

I still felt that way this morning when I decided you know what? Let’s make it interesting.

Upon learning I still had some money socked away in my favorite Latvian casino, I decided to place 30 different bets to make tonight’s proceedings into something that could be perceived as fun by people still capable of feeling feelings.
