What a call. On a 1000 dollar wager.

The New York Giants fan who won $50,000 on the team's Super Bowl XLVI safety will donate his winnings to charity.

 

Jona Rechnitz placed a $1,000 wager that the first score of Sunday's game would be a Giants safety. When Tom Brady was called for intentional grounding on the New England Patriots' first possession, Rechnitz had the improbable 50-1 victory and the $50,000 in winnings it brought.

 

TMZ reports that Rechnitz plans to donate all the post-tax money to various charities, including one of Tom Brady's choice. He also hopes to donate $5,000 to a charity selected by Justin Tuck, the Giants defender whose pass rush forced Brady to make his illegal throw downfield.

 

Rechnitz owns a capital investment firm in Manhattan. He told the entertainment website that he only makes one Super Bowl bet per year.

 

The safety was only the sixth in Super Bowl history and the first to start a game in more than 40 years. In the Giants' first playoff victory of 2012, the team gave up a safety to the Atlanta Falcons. Those two points were all Atlanta would score in the game, marking the first time in NFL playoff history that a team finished a game with that total.

I saw that prop and passed right over it, but I don't think it was that much on my board, maybe 20-1, hit a bunch on Woodheads stats, and BJGE.........who woulda thought a safety.
