Remember Super Bowl Squares ?

     Don't you miss those Super Bowl Squares that used to be pervasive ?   Some were a dollar a square, some like at the old Benny's were a couple hundred a square. Some polls paid on the quarters....some on score changes....
     Folks would call around and find out their numbers once drawn, and it was a nice, friendly way to add some fun and consequence to the big game.
     New York State have stamped out the pools by declaring them illegal in any licensed establishment and these days few want to take the chance.
    There's still a few out there being done on the down low, but for the most part, Super Bowl squares are a thing of the past.

Thank God for government lovers everywhere. Time to play some golf, unless they've made that illegal.
