2 The Art of Betting on the Super Bowl

Will Christina Aguilera wear a cowboy hat when she sings the national anthem? Will Fergie be dressed as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader at any time in the halftime show? Does anyone lacking disposable income and/or a severe gambling addiction actually care?

Speaking of outrageous Super Bowl bets, for the second year in a row, a most culturally refined wager has been placed on the game.

If the Green Bay Packers win, Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art will send Pierre Renoir’s “Bathers with a Crab” (circa 1890s) to Milwaukee as a temporary loan. If the Pittsburgh Steelers win, the Milwaukee Art Museum will loan Gustave Caillebotte's “Boating on the Yerres” (1877) to Pittsburgh.

In that case — Go Packers!

  1. Speaking of Christina Aguilera, her performance tonight was embarrassing! What an absolute joke!
