Looking On The Bright Side of Presents

College Football’s King of Gift Certificates

There are two people in opposing teams that have a massive grudge against each other and they are University of Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney. Their rivalry is not all about the competition on the sidelines, though.

Their rivalry is also about the exchange of gift certificates.

Both Saban and Swinney decided that they should bet on something. Both agreed that the loser in the 2016 College Football National Championship will be treating the winner to dinner at the Boca Grande. It is a Florida restaurant by the way if you did not know what Boca Grande is. Both Saban and Swinney decided that place because they both love the restaurant. Their families are also in love with the place because there are a lot of vacation homes in the area.

Now, you have to know who won the bet and became the college football king of gift certificates.

The team name the Crimson Tide won the nationals in the year 2016. Saban won and Swinnery lost but the loser did follow through on the bet. But Saban did not expect what happened next after the win.

So there, both Swinney and Saban were in the place where they agreed on for the free dinner but something was not right. But then, Saban got mad at Swinney. It was because Saban thought that he was going to eat together with Swinney. But Swinney said that he did not think it was going to happen so he did not really prepare for it. Swinney did not want to owe Saban anything so he handed out something to Saban and left.

Swinney handed Saban a gift certificate and it had a note at the back saying they were going to meet again at Tampa next year.

When the media heard about the story, the whole web went crazy about it. The social media went crazy over the two, both defending their beloved teams, it was very interesting. Will Swinney win this time and pull off the upset?

The tables have been turned and things just got more interesting.

The Crimson Tide, Saban’s team suffered a 35-31 defeat but Saban returned the favor like a true sportsman, with no quarrels and no bad mouthing. Saban gave Swinney the gift certificate that came from the same restaurant during their bet on nationals , last year.

Both coaches never did share a meal at Boca Grande together but they were never really in a serious fight, both were just playing around and even thought about going for a third time with their bets.

Both teams are going strong and are all great competitors, both teams are aiming for the championship every season.
