In January of 1987, a friend of Marketplace listener Allen Marin came to him with a crazy idea: he was going to try and sneak into the Super Bowl and wanted to know if Allen was willing to join him.
After a little pressure from his friend, Allen agreed to do it. But it wasn’t until he went out and purchased a Big Mac from McDonald’s that he realized how.
