I'd have enough faith in them doing it without me making that deal. Some things are just more important than football.


But still....GO PHINS!

That'd depend on how long I live. If it were only to my 50's or earlier, I'd love to have that extra year. Anything after 75 is a nice life, and giving one up to see my beloved Phins win a championship (if they haven't already) would be great.

I thought about that and would agree with you. But lets say you don't get any foresight. For that reason I voted no.

I'll wait until another Dolphins fan gives up their year and reap the benefits.

With recent developments in my life I'd trade this year in a heart beat... at least then I'd have something to be happy about.

:yay:

Life is real and precious. This is a game for entertainment purposes. NO WAY
Just think if you were a Cubs fan, those guys haven't won squat in over a 100 years. Sometimes being a fan doesn't include winning.

I love the phins, but a year of my life for a superbowl win? I don't even think I'd give a month of my life for a superbowl win, and I don't think any of the players or coaches would disagree.

The answer to your question may be 42, or what is six times nine either will probably do. lol , since we are only talking hypothetically. For those who did not get my pop culture answer I apologize. Seriously I would not give up a second of yours or my own life for something as trivial as a SB victory.

I would hope that they would do it without me needing to do anything......but being a Red Sox fan, I know how long it could take to get one.

That said, if I knew I would live 75-80+, then yeah I'd give up a year. Hell, I'd give up 2. Can't put a pricetag on what we saw the Saints do last night.

You can't put a pricetag on life.

Whatever the hospital bill is for an abortion....bad taste? Sorry...

but in all seriousness, if the Dolphins won a Super Bowl the amount of happiness I'd get would extend my life for another year anyway. A unhappy life isn't really worth living, is it?....assuming that a Dolphins victory in the Super Bowl would make your life a happy one.

Just out of curiosity, how many of the No votes are overweight or smokers? I'd sure as hell lose weight for a super bowl victory. I'd probably live a year longer if I were fitter. So it holds that yeah, I would give up a year for a superbowl as I'm apparently willing to give one up for cheeseburgers and pizza.

Interesting to consider what I would give up a year of life for and what have I already done that has probably cost a year of my life.
