After the controversy surrounding this year's divisional championships, many fans are feeling emotional about the upcoming Super Bowl. As a result, Buffalo Wild Wings is hoping to soothe sorrows by giving people something to cheer for beyond football. On Wednesday the company announced that if the Feb. 3 game goes into overtime, they will give their customers free wings.
"We know fans get a thrill out of having something riding on the outcome of the game, and given the number of overtime games we’ve seen all season, we wanted to up the ante for everyone," BWW's chief marketing officer Seth Freeman said. "Even if you don’t have a dog in the fight, we all have a common rooting interest in extending the game because that means more football, and now, free wings!"
If the big game does see extra minutes, patrons will receive free snack-sized wings from the hours of 4-7 p.m. on Feb. 18.
This is a dream that will probably come true. During the regular season, fans experienced 15 overtime games. In addition, this year's NFC and AFC Championship games marked the first time in NFL history that both games had to go into overtime to decide the winner.
With the odds on their side and the love of free food in their heart, fans just might be praying for another fantastically long game come Feb. 3.
