When Patriots defensive back Malcolm Butler made the game saving interception in the Super Bowl, he also saved each of his teammates $48,000. The winners got $97,000 and the losers $49,000.

Tickets were expensive. Saw some people that thought they bought a weekend package that included tickets but found out when they got there they had no tickets. Seems that happens every year. It is a big money event and I did my part. I took the Patriots and won one dollar from a friend in Hereford.
