Now, That's A Great Day

From ESPN: Two parlay wagers potentially worth $57,000 each were in play during the Monday Night game between the Chicago Bears and New York Jets.
One needed the Bears; the other the Jets. And, this time, Rex won.
A sports bettor from Kingman, Arizona, who asked to be identified only as Rex, won $57,935 off of a $5 bet when the Bears beat coach Rex Ryan and the Jets, 27-19, on Monday night.
The Rex from Arizona collected his cash prize Tuesday afternoon at the William Hill sports book at the Edgewater Hotel & Casino in Laughlin, Nevada. A regular player at the book, Rex correctly picked the straight-up winner of all 15 Sunday and Monday NFL games on one of his 16 contest entries.
Rex was one of two bettors out of 3,986 entries this week in the William Hill Pro Progressive Football Parlay Card to correctly pick the straight-up winner (no point spreads) of all 14 Sunday games. The other card was entered at the Silverado Casino in Fernley, Nevada, and was relying on the Jets.
According to William Hill spokesperson Michael Grodsky, Rex hedged his wager for an undisclosed amount by betting on the Jets to win straight-up Monday at the Edgewater sports book.  http://espn.go.com/espn/chalk/story/_/id/11578272/arizona-man-wins-57k-5-bet-thanks-bears-win
Wow, 15-0 for the weekend and wins $57,000+ on a $5 bet.
Of course, after taxes, he will end up with about $25.
There will be some partying tonight on his remaining winnings.
