Football bet promotion goes horribly wrong for Seattle dealership.
Even though they were already eliminated from the playoff chase before Sunday's game, losing 23-0 would have been hard to swallow for The Giants. But not as hard as one car dealership near Seattle. Prior to kickoff, Jet Chevrolet ran a promotion offering 12 people $35k each if the Seattle Seahawks shut out the New York Giants. That hadn't happened in the regular season since 1995, so the bet appeared to be a relatively safe one. It obviously wasn't.
