Jacoby Jones returns kickoff for TD, 35 bar patrons get free season's pass | Sports & Recreation
Contrary to the sports report, the Baltimore Ravens weren't the only winners on Super Bowl Sunday.
Thirty-five lucky patrons of Noah's Bar at Silver Mountain Resort were winners of free season passes for the 2013-14 season when Jacoby Jones returned the second half opening kickoff for a touchdown.
“We saw it get buried deep into the end zone and wondered if he was going to take it out,” Neal Scholey, director of marketing and sales for Silver Mountain, said. “It only took two seconds before everybody in the bar started freaking out.”
Super Bowl XLVII marked the seventh time the mountain has offered a free season pass for anyone with an open tab if and when the second half opening kickoff was returned for a TD. The mountain hasn't released prices for the 2013-14 season yet, but if you were to buy a season pass today for this season it would cost you $609.
“A lot of people were super stoked,” Scholey said. “It was a great place to watch the ball game, and an even better place to win a free season's pass.”
Scholey said winners ranged from Kalispell, Mont., to Spokane and from Lewiston up to Kellogg.
“It was a fun event,” he said. “We're looking forward to it next year, but it will probably be standing-room only in the bar now that everyone knows what we're offering.”
