Seattle Chevy Dealer Has to Dish Out $420K After Seahawks Shutout Giants
Betting a lot of money on the NFL is never a smart idea. Betting a lot of money on Eli Manning in 2013 — that's damn near insanity. Jet Chevrolet out of Federal Way, Washington, though, put down loads of cash on yesterday's game, and now has to dish out over $420,000 worth of winnings to a few lucky customers. Ouch. According to Complex, the dealer ran a promotion in which 12 lucky customers would win $35,000 each if the Seattle Seahawks held the lowly New York Giants to a goose egg in yesterday's game. Lo and behold, Eli Manning tossed five interceptions, and the Giants laid down without much a fight. Seattle won 23-0.
Apparently though, the dealership is sticking to its guns and biting the bullet on this $420K loss. But hey, there's a silver lining — maybe all 12 of those lucky customers will come back and buy a car. Although, probably not.
