It really doesn’t suck to be Matt Ahrens right now. Why? OK, yes, his Fulham English Premier League team did lose 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, but he got a pretty good consolation prize: He got to hang with 37 Bodog Girls before and during the game there and won a trip for two to Las Vegas with all accommodations and spending money thrown in.
Here’s what happened: For the past few weeks, the Bodog Girls were entering soccer fans to win tickets to that Fulham-Spurs’ game. Long story short, there were 37 lucky winners who got to meet in a Fulham bar – Perseverance Bar just off the Putney Bridge — before the match with 37 Bodog Girls. All 37 winners got go on the pitch at halftime with his own Bodog Girl, where one winner was randomly chosen in a human roulette wheel. That was Matt.
Ahrens, 28, and originally from Essex, was understandably happy, even doing a sprint down the pitch.
“The smile hasn’t dropped from my face and I don’t think it will do for a couple of days at least,” he said. “After I’d gone off on my run, my mates wondered why I hadn’t tried re-enacting a Klinsmann dive!”
So who is going with him to Vegas?
“I’m here with one of my mates so I think he’s going to be leaning heavily on my shoulder,” Matt said.
You know, assuming he doesn’t ask the Bodog Girl.
So do you really need any other reason to join Bodog?
