The upstate is pretty much home. I wasn't born here, but the family moved to Greenville 40 years ago when Dad took a job in the textile business. Went to J. L. Mann High, then saw my daughter graduate from the same school. I started in the radio business after one semester of college, which I found out was too hard. (College, not this!) I was lucky to get started here at WESC 30 years ago, and haven't found anything else I really wanted to do more. And I like the things we have on WESC ... I do like country music, I do like racing, I just don't like getting up at 3 am.
Billions of dollars change hands in bets on Super Sunday. Most wagers are on things like who wins the game, or who rushes for the most yards. But every year oddsmakers come up with a list of 'proposition bets,' where you can bet on all things on the field and off. Here are a few of my favorites, you can actually make these bets this weekend!
Will Beyonce’s hair be straight, not curly?
How long it will take Alicia Keys to sing the National Anthem (o/u 2 minutes and 05 seconds)
Will Alicia Keys be booed? If yes, $100 wins $500
How many times Ray Lewis will mention “God/Lord” in post-game interview (o/u 3 times)
Will any player on either team be arrested before the game? If yes, $100 pays $500.
What color Gatorade will be dumped on winning coach? $100 wins… Clear: +$180, Yellow: +$200,
Jim Harbrough will be shown first after opening kickoff (53% chance)
Who the Super Bowl MVP will thank first. $100 wins… God: +$100, Teammates: +$175, Nobody: +$200, Coaches/Owner: +$500, Family: +$600
Who will score more points Sunday, the 49ers, or Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers (my personal favorite!)
