Super Bowl Frenzy: Sibling Rivalry Helps Family Get To Game
By Charles Benson
Next game: February 6th at Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh
Sibling rivalry is paying off for Jill Stephens and her family. They're going to Dallas for the Super Bowl.
"I just became this huge Packers fan" said Jill Stephens.
But her big brother in Indiana wanted to go. Bryon is a huge Bears Fan.
"For years she was a Bears fan, said Bryon, "then she moved to Wisconsin for her job and shortly thereafter became a turncoat!"
So before the big NFC Championship game they all decided to buy three tickets to the Super Bowl.
"Either the Bears are going to win and you're going to want three tickets," said Jill, "or the Packers are going to win so lets just buy them."
"The sad thing about this is, I pretty much set this whole package up," claimed Bryon.
Jill, her husband and son are now going to the big game.
"He did text me: 'Have fun in Dallas', said Jill, "that was really nice of him."
"It was hard but the better team won" conceded Byron.
The sibling rivalry has now become a fun family rivalry as Jill's husband jokes about the lesson learned here for their son.
"Always, always be a good sport except when it comes to the Bears," Jeff Hynes said with a smile.
