Your Chance To Win A Free Bet For Solving This Sporting Brainteaser

by Aidan Elder | March 20, 2012

I didn’t get a chance to do a blog competition last week on account of the fact I was writing a “hilarious” and “brilliant” live blog on the events at the Cheltenham Festival last week. I don’t know why I used quotation marks there because no-one actually used those words to describe it, but popularity or lack thereof aside, I was busy and unable to bring you your weekly dose of quizzy goodness.

The good news is I’ve bottled up all my desire to bamboozle and this week I’m unleashing it with venom. I think this week’s quiz is more abstract and difficult than then, but then again, I struggled to follow the plot of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, so maybe I’m not best placed to judge.

It’s the same format as a typical badly-named See It, Say It competition. If you’re not familiar with it, then first of all – you’re very welcome into the darkest reaches of my brain – and secondly, it’s really easy. Each picture below (very) roughly corresponds to a syllable that forms part of some sort of phrase associated with sport. Put them all together, add a smidgen of artistic license and hopefully you should have something approaching a sports-related phrase. Historically, it was all mainly sports people, but I moved away from that and now it’s just words and phrases loosely associated with the world of sport. Doesn’t sound like much of a clue, but it’s better than nothing and should save you a lot of wasted time and effort.

Win A Free Bet

Put your answer in an email and send it to with or indeed without the subject line ‘Save Ferris’. DO NOT PUT YOUR GUESS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION – it won’t count towards the competition. You’re allowed to have more than one guess, but please note that your most recent guess will count towards the competition so even if you got 5/5 first time, if you then change your answers and get 4/5 then the 4/5 will count. If you’ve got any questions or merely some observations on life, use the comments section for that, but no answers please.

The prize starts off as a £/€50 Free Bet, but I’m imploring you to – for the want of a better word – whore this competition this competition around the social networks of this world. Every time this tweet gets retweeted or this competition gets shared on Facebook, LinkedIn or the other ones, I’ll add one europound to the prize. You really should do it because (a) it’s the nice thing to do and (b) you might well be the person who benefits from the vast inflation of the prize.

Get your answers in before 10am on Tuesday 27th March. I’ll reveal the answer and the winner soon after. If you’ve got any questions, give me a shout on twitter where I’m @PaddyPowerAidan or in the comments section.

– Customers must be over the age of 18, have a valid account and remember when Ireland getting hammered in Twickenham was the norm rather than a massive disappointment.
– Maximum size of the free bet will be €/£150.
– Paddy Power decision is final and moaning will be ridiculed.
