All bets are off.

I'm not a huge football person (baseball is my main squeeze), but my family is pretty enthralled with it.

When my mom heard that Ethan was convinced that the Vikings would win over the Saints today and win their spot in the Super Bowl, she immediately offered him two dollars betting otherwise. Ethan replied, "Oh, I'll take that bet. That's like taking candy from a baby."

Well, the Saints won in OT. So, my mom sent a little friendly text message Ethan's way.

Mom: Who's getting their candy taken now?

I love it.

Edit:

Ethan: Want to go double or nothing? I'll bet that the Colts win the Super Bowl.

My family is big on sports, but Rob's is not one bit at all (he really could care less) but I had no idea who I wanted to win that game. I did root for the Colts though when I watched them play the Jets. Everyone had their Jets stuff all over the place here. haha. too bad! I think I want the Colts to win the Super Bowl. Not sure yet.
