Whatever you do, DON'T BET ON THE BRONCOS!
That's what happened in Houston Sunday when self-described gambler, Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngale, CEO of Gallery Furniture, put it all on Denver in the "Big Game."
The deal...You buy $6,000 or more in furniture in the 2 weeks leading up to the game and if the Seahawks win, SO DO YOU! If the Broncos fall, you get a full refund. Well, about a zillion people took "Mattress" up on it, to the tune of $7,000,000. You keep the furniture and you get the purchase price fully refunded. And, to his credit, Jim paid up!
Says "Mattress Mack," who's been business for 32 years, "We already have people sending us videos of them jumping up and down celebrating, so I have no doubt that what we will lose is already worth it to our business."
So, if we discover that each of the Broncos has 6 grand in new furniture, is something fishy!?! DaveT
