The Giants aren't the only ones in despair following the embarrassing shutout handed to them by the Seahawks. Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way, Wash. will have to put its money where its advertising is and fork out $420,000. The dealership ran a promotion promising to give out 12 prizes of $35,000 each if the Seahawks held the Giants scoreless in today's game.
Eli Manning and his five interceptions ensured the payout in the Giants' 23-0 loss. According to Jon Humbert, a reporter for KOMO in Seattle, Jet Chevrolet won't be welshing on the giveaway.
There's a lesson to be learned here: never bet on Eli Manning. We're guessing Jet Chevrolet's GM has the Eli struggle face right now for making that mistake.
