The short story of how Mark & Tyler from Grande Prairie got to the Super Bowl is this : They drank beer at their favourite sports bar, and won a trip to San Francisco.

Let’s starting from the beginning. What did Mark have to do to win a pair of tickets to the biggest sports-related party in North America? He ordered a Budweiser product (or several, likely, because Mark can really knock them back). With each pint he also received a pull tab entry card, and when he discovered a picture of the Lombardi Trophy under each of the three tabs, he won an entry into the draw to qualify for the trek down to San Francisco.

Upon being crowned the qualifying contestant from Grande Prairie, Mark and his buddy Tyler hopped on a plane and flew down to Shark Club Vancouver for the AFC + NFC party. After watching the Broncos fend off a late surge from Tom Brady and the Patriots, a reverse-draw was made, leaving Mark as the lone name remaining. His reaction to winning the Super Bowl was highly appropriate.


So what exactly did Mark’s Super Bowl 50 trip prize winnings entail? Well, first we had to get them there. Our friends at Budweiser hooked the guys up with a flight to San Francisco, put them up for three nights at the JW Marriott downtown, handed over a pre-paid VISA card, free meals, and some epic adventures in San Francisco, including a trolley tour of the city, a visit to Alcatraz, and a VIP Pass to the NFL Experience.

This is my second NFL game, not a bad second game to go to.

We couldn’t agree more.
