BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - That 31-year-old wager Peggy Byrd made with her boss is already paying dividends.
Byrd is the Peoples Bank employee we first told you about Thursday. She made a bet with her boss back in 1979 that if the Saints ever made the Super Bowl, he'd pay for her to go. They both signed it, notarized it, and Byrd has kept it in a safety deposit box all these years.
Friday, Byrd was contacted by somebody at First National Bankers Bank in New Orleans. Her story apparently made the rounds over there. And the bankers in New Orleans wanted Byrd to be a winner, no matter what.
They offered her four tickets and a parking pass for this Sunday's game, and we're told she's taking them up on the offer.
