Storyline

It's tradition for Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily and now Robin to watch the Super Bowl together. The 2007 edition of the game is different in that they have to attend a funeral the day of the game. They expect to be home in time for the 6:00 kick off, but just in case they're not, they're Tivo-ing the game. When the funeral goes longer than they expect and they miss the game altogether, Ted proposes that they watch the game on Monday night in eighteen hours to keep the tradition alive, but also to avoid finding out who won the game before watching it. It's difficult enough for Robin to avoid knowing since she works in the media and Ted since he is tasked with buying the hot wings at a sports bar for the game, but it ends up being just as difficult a situation unexpectedly for Marshall. Barney, on the other hand, does whatever he can to find out who won since he's got a lot of money riding on the outcome. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Barney offers Marshall a Super Bowl bet, saying, "I'll give you the Seahawks plus six points for $500." Robin, who at the time is new to the clique, enters and delivers three lines that are supposed to show she fits in with the group. Two of the lines work, when she compliments the beloved chicken wings and likes a Super Bowl commercial. But in the first of the three she says, "I'll take that action but make it 4 points and a grand." She's actually made the bet worse for herself by getting two fewer points. This has the opposite effect than what the writers intended for the character at that point. See more »

Quotes

Marshall Eriksen: [Watching the Superbowl, 2004] Hey, Barney, I bet you 20 bucks that Casey misses this field goal.
Barney Stinson: I don't bet. Betting's for suckers.
Marshall Eriksen: Make it like a dollar or something, you know. Who cares? No big deal.
Barney Stinson: Fine.
Marshall Eriksen: See, there you go, he made it. You win.
[Hands Barney a dollar]
Barney Stinson: Wait. This is mine, just like that? God, that feels good. No, that feels really... good. What else can we bet on?
Marshall Eriksen: Nothing, it's the halftime show.
Lily Aldrin: Oh, so lame. Nobody even pays attention. I mean, Janet Jackson, who cares?

This Episode Is Worth It If You Want Your Usual Insanity That HIMYM Went Through In Their Early Years But They Seem To Have Stopped That Which Has Made The Show Go A Little Downhill. My Favourite Part Is Marshall Being Insulted By A 5 Year Old. Overall I Really Liked This Episode.
