You get a futon! And you get a futon! And you get a futon!

Look, I’m excited when I have the possibility of getting a free taco from someone striking out 4 times at a minor league baseball game or whatever. So this? This is awesome:

Per ESPN:

Texas A&M’s big 24-point win over South Carolina on Thursday night paid off to the tune of more than $1 million for some Aggies fans.

The Ashley Furniture branch located in College Station, where Texas A&M is based, offered all furniture purchased from Aug. 16 through Aug. 27 for free if the Aggies beat the Gamecocks by at least 10 points.

Mark Wilks, who owns the store, told ESPN.com on Thursday night that more than 600 people bought items during that time period totaling more than $1 million in sales. One customer, Wilks said, bought $20,000 worth of furniture.

 

Your team wins and also furnishes your entire house for free? Not a bad start to the college football season for that fan.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go try to get free tacos somehow.
