Hot Clicks will have an in-depth look at the Super Bowl prop bets next week. (In addition to standards, such as the coin flip, you can also bet on whether Beyonce
will show cleavage during her first song: Yes -500/No +300). But for today, here's a fun look back at the history of the prop bet

In Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks
, I told you about a Maryland jewelry story offering to refund customers up to $5,000 if the Ravens shut out the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. I also said that just once, I'd like to see that gimmick backfire. Several readers then sent in examples of business' getting burned by these wacky offers. For example...
: Kansas City electronics store gets burned
by the Chiefs.
: Furniture store gets burned
: Boston furniture store gets burned
by the Red Sox.
: Flooring company gets burned
by Josh Hamilton
: Alabama jeweler get burned
by the Iron Bowl.
The 1983 White Sox uniforms are one of my favorites of all time, so I was happy to see the news
that they'll be wearing them every Sunday this season.
