Super Bowl Gambling Packet


Well, the big game is just around the corner! The anticipation is beginning to build around here. I drove by the stadium yesterday and it was pretty incredible seeing the transformation.

Here’s a little packet to help bring in the winnings on any bets you may have made. It’s based on the paper footballs that we used to play with as kids.

You will need the following:

  • One red pen and one black pen
  • A piece of notebook paper
  • A pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and alfalfa

Begin this working on Super Bowl Sunday morning. First, write your petition on one side of the notebook paper with the red pen. The petition’s intention phrase can be something so simple as, “Make the ________ win for me,” where the blank is replaced by your winning team preference, e.g. “Make the Seahawks win for me.” If you happen to be participating in a football pool, then you could write something like, “For every quarter, make the Seahawk’s score end with a 6 and the Patriot’s score end with a 3; make that big money pot come home with me.” Once you have written your phrase, turn the paper 90 degrees and write your name in black ink three times across the phrase so that your name covers the phrase completely.

Next, combine in a small bowl a pinch each of the following and set it aside until needed — cinnamon, nutmeg, and alfalfa.

You are now ready to fold your football. Review the video below for instructions on how to do that. Make sure that you make your beginning folds so that your petition is hidden on the inside of the folds. Make the first three folds and then place just a pinch of the pre-made mixture in the crease of the first fold. Once the mixture is in place, carefully complete that center fold to make the long strip. Then make the corner to corner triangle folds in such a fashion as to always be folding towards yourself, until the football packet is secured.

Write the names of each team on opposite sides of the football with the words WIN under the team you want to win and LOSE under the team you want to lose. Alternately, following the football pool example above, you could write Seahawks 6 on one side and Patriots 3 on the other side.

Dress your completed football with an appropriate oil or a dab of Hoyt’s Cologne. (I am partial to our Black Cat Hoodoo brand New Orleans Red Fast Luck Oil, which is great for short bursts of luck.)

Lastly, place the football packet in your right shoe. Be sure to place the team you want to lose, facing up, so their name is facing the bottom of your foot. Take the remaining mixture of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and alfalfa and place that in your left shoe (waste not, want not). Now, as you watch the game or go about your day, tap your right foot when you feel the time is appropriate and concentrate on the outcome you want.

So, there you have it. I hope you have fun with this, but most of all, I hope you win some big bucks! If you do, don’t forget to tip your hoodoosant! <wink>
