Wanna Bet On How Long It'll Take Christina Aguilera To Get Through Her Super Bowl National Anthem?
And, a week after that news, comes more news to add fun to the matter. As with everything else that's Super Bowl-related, you can now place bets on Aguilera's national anthem -- and, specifically, on her version's length.
Inspin.com is currently offering odds on that very subject, pretty much banking on the fact that Aguilera's take will fall somewhere between 1:50 or 2:10. Eager gamblers can place bets at varying odds for within that range, but the real big-money takes will come with bets that her version's either shorter than 1:50 or longer than 2:10 -- winning tickets on either of those fronts will earn gamblers three times their initial gamble.
But what's the smart bet? After the jump, we'll give you our well-researched answer.
Our money's on the 1:50 to 1:54 range -- odds of which are currently two-to-one. But, see, here's the deal: Both national anthem takes we just watched of Aguilera's on Youtube -- this one and the one -- come in at just a hair over 1:50. And, yes, they're fairly extended versions already. It's Christina Aguilera after all, let's not forget.
