Through June, Europe was buzzing with the Euro2012 football match. Although I’ll admit I’m not the biggest football fan, we had a betting pool at work in for fun, where we all put in £5. Given that it was a fairly large team the winning prize was a reasonable amount, but everyone would win some small prizes as a result.
For some odd reason, I ended up leading the pack most of the way, even though I didn’t really know much about the teams at the time. It also turned out that my betting on Germany winning the finals lost me plenty of points that would have guaranteed a clear victory after the quarter finals. As it turned out, I ended up tying (points wise) with another person, but still won out given that I picked more winners consistently throughout. Fun times!
