Superbowl LII was bittersweet for some and a happy event for others…
Superbowl LII is always a big event for football fans, but this year it was a very special event for the fans of the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles won the game against the New England Patriots. With any ending sports season, fans rage all around their favorite teams, and bets are overflowing, with many hoping to have some bragging rights.
The Eagles won 41 to 33 and many fans will either have to pay up or are lucky winners of cash AND in-your-face warranted behavior.

Unfortunately for Bud Light, they are amongst the people who made the bets, and lost it all. This bet all started back in August 2017, when the Eagles’ lineman Lane Johnson promised beer for every Philly resident if the Eagles won the Super Bowl. In response to this promise, Bud Light decided to take on this bet for their own. Bud Light is known to favor the Patriots, so they probably made the bet not imagining it come back to haunt them.
Flash forward to now, and many lucky fans in Philadelphia will get a free drink. Must be 21 years or older of course. Bud Light issued a statement on the matter and it looks like they are as good as their word. Cheers to Philly Philly Day and Drinks to that!
