I like a good, friendly sports bet among friends, but I never bet money...for GOOD reason! Last month, a store in Houston called Gallery Furniture lost $685,000 on a promotion where customers could win FREE FURNITURE if they correctly guessed the winners of the AFC and NFC championship games.
After that, owner Jim McIngvale said he was done with promotional contests. But apparently he changed his mind . . . because he decided to offer an even crazier deal.
