I'm 19 and finished my first year of college.

This blog was originally only about my intense passion for soccer, but the world is a fascinating and funny place and I couldn't stick to one thing. The stuff I reblog is a reflection of my taste in music, humor, sports, and political interests.

So enjoy.

 

Lady luck! Soccer fan mistakenly bets MK Dons 4-0 win vs. United at staggering odds

How would you like to win £1,250 ($2,071) totally on accident? That sounds about as awesome as it does unlikely … unless you’re one lucky woman in England:

Holly Griffiths, a reported Manchester United fan, redeemed a free bet of £2.50 ($4.14) on Tuesday’s Capital One League Cup tilt between MK Dons and United. Most sane folks expected United, an English juggernaut, to roll past lowly third-tier MK Dons.

That, of course, wasn’t the case. MK Dons went on to win in a stunner, but we assume Griffiths was even more surprised when she went to check her betting account.

She’d accidentally tossed her freebie bet on the massive underdogs to win 4-0 at a whopping 500/1 odds. To put it in perspective, it would be like gambling that Eeyore would win the Kentucky Derby, and hitting.

OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but this isn’t: Holly Griffiths is the luckiest person in the world.
