Local Chickens Predict Super Bowl and Odds!
Lowell Jons reports uncanny accuracy from the chicken coop!
The families of Lowell Jons and Jen/Gib Black share a chicken coop. For some gameday fun they had their chickens ‘lay’ the odds and winner of the Super Bowl. There are two main nesting boxes where they lay so the Eagles were given box A and Patriots box B. Whichever box had the most eggs wins, with the difference between the number of eggs being by what the difference in the score was. There are 9 chickens in the coop, though typically only 6 or 7 eggs are being laid per day.
By the middle of the day the Eagles had all the eggs in their box with 7, none for the Patriots. As the game progressed in looked as though there might well be a 7-score spread, but in the fourth quarter things changed with an Eagles field goal versus a touchdown. Indeed, the score difference was 8 by the end of the game. BUT, when Lowell got home and checked the coop, one late decider laid an egg in the Eagle’s box to make it 8 and the exact spread of the Superbowl game. The birds predicted the winner and the odds spread. They were ‘eggsactly’ right and laid a perfect spread.
