Super Bowl Bettors Put Money on McCartney

Feb 02, 2005, 00:00 ET from Sports Interaction

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- While everyone places the usual
 Super Bowl bets on who will win in the New England versus Philadelphia match-
 up on February 6, Sports Interaction takes this tradition one step further.
 You can now place bets on the halftime show's entertainment, Paul McCartney.
     Fans can now bet on what songs will be included in his set, from "Live and
 Let Die" to "Say Say Say" or "Helter Skelter." You can bet on what song will
 open the set, and how many songs he'll play during the halftime show. A $10
 bet on "Can't Buy Me Love" as the opening song could return you $150.
     In addition, you can also bet on who might appear with the former Beatle
 on stage. Candidates include Ringo Starr, Justin Timberlake, Dolly Parton,
 Gwen Stefani, and Janet Jackson. Those craving a more adventurous wager can
 put money on whether Paul will suffer a wardrobe malfunction during the show,
 although perhaps to the relief of the NFL, the odds are a very long 100 to 1.
     "Many people have already made up their minds on who will win on February
 6," says Ruth Purcell of SportsInteraction.com. "For those who think the
 winner is a foregone conclusion, we wanted to give you something to make the
 game a little more interesting."
     The current wager is part of Sports Interaction's larger "Special" bets
 section. In the same section, you can also bet on whether Hillary Clinton will
 be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2008, if the Dow Jones Industrial
 Average will close above 12,000 at the end of 2005, and whether Chow Yun Fat
 will be cast as the next James Bond.
 
     Sports Interaction (www.sportsinteraction.com) was founded in 1997, and
 continues to be the largest online sportsbook licensed and regulated in North
 America. With over 300,000 members, its goal is to provide fun, interactive
 online betting in a secure and strictly regulated environment.
