A few days before the Super Bowl, a Baltimore furniture company called Gardiner’s Furniture offered a special promotion for anyone who purchased furniture between January 31, 2013 and Februrary, 2013.

The deal was that if the Ravens returned a kickoff for a touchdown at either the beginning of the game or at the beginning of the third quarter, anyone who bought any furniture within the aforementioned timeframe would get their furniture for free.

The promotion was obviously based around the undeniable rarity of kickoff returns for touchdowns in the Super Bowl, especially at the beginning of the game or the third quarter.

Yet we all saw what happened last night, and because of Jacoby Jones’ historic kickoff return, Gardiners let $600,000  worth of furniture go for free.

They did, however, purchase an insurance policy for the deal before the Super Bowl so they would be reimbursed should the Ravens do the impossible on the big night.

Good thinking, or else they’d be faced with a world of lawsuits had they not second guessed the possibility of a such a tremendous Super Bowl feat.
