ARLINGTON, TX — Shawn Baybutt recently won a Super Bowl trip of a lifetime from local radio station, The Star.
He won the trip by coming in first place in a Super Bowl themed trivia contest. To win, he had to answer a series of questions by buzzing in before the other contestants. The prize includes airfare and accommodations for two, as well as a chauffeured limousine to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX. The big game takes place on February 6, 2011.
“I was shocked when they told me that I’d won. The Super Bowl is a once in a lifetime event and I can’t believe that I get to go. I’m taking my best friend of 20 years and we’re both excited to be going – no matter who’s actually playing. We’re looking forward to a fun weekend in Dallas and think the atmosphere surrounding the big game is going to be amazing. I was planning on throwing a big party at my house, but this is so much better. Luckily all my friends understood when I told them I had to cancel my party,” said Shawn Baybutt.
This is the first time the Super Bowl has been held in Cowboys Stadium, the largest domed stadium in the world. The stadium was completed in 2009 and Shawn Baybutt will celebrate the event with 80,000 other fans. The stadium also boasts the largest high definition television screen at 160 feet wide and 72 feet tall, ensuring that everyone attending the game can view the action up front.
The Black Eyed Peas are scheduled to perform at the halftime show and Christina Aguilera is reported to open the game with US National Anthem. The teams will be determined by the NFC and AFC playoffs that take place January 23, 2011.
“I thought the playoffs were going to be exciting, but now that I know I’m actually going to the game, I’m much more invested. My favorite team didn’t even make it into the playoffs, but I don’t care. I never used to enter contests because I was sure I’d never win, but my best friend convinced me that I knew more about football than anyone else in our city. I didn’t think so, but it’s made me a believer in contests. I’ll definitely enter any other contests I find. Who knows, I might just get lucky again!” said Shawn Baybutt.
