Homeless couple wins trip to the Super Bowl

New York, Feb 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A homeless couple couldn’t believe their luck when they were handed tickets to the Super Bowl XLV.

Ironically those who were scouting for a “mystery man” to get the tickets were those who got the couple aware of the contest. After several people asked them “have you been to Dallas lately?” the couple figured out something was going on.

Those words were the keywords to win yourself the ticket if you happen to meet the “mystery man”. The “mystery man” was on the streets of Green Bay where residents were supposed to locate and give him the keyword to win the ticket for the Super Bowl.

When the couple, Ouida Wright and her boyfriend, Aaron, got the man right and won the ticket, they had another big challenge – how to get to Dallas. They only had a total of 90 cents on them and there was no way that they were going to be able to make the trip.

Before they could throw the two tickets that they won in the trash bin, the “mystery man” again surprised them when he announced on TV that the two will also be given plane tickets to Dallas.

Aaron said it has been his dream since his childhood to attend the Super Bowl in his life.
