Mice Tice, in the Pick Six, won more than $100,000 in Southern California. Tice was a a former NFL head and assistant coach.

Tice said that he did research on the horse race before he betted.

“I’m a horse guy. Belmont and Saratoga started, and throughout my football life, I’ve never been able to play them because I’ve always been in training camp,” said Tice, according to ESPN.

“I sat down to watch the race, and I swear, you’d have to look at the replay. It was a head bob for the win,” Tice said. “I didn’t know if I won, took second or whatever. I was on the phone with Diane, and she was actually sitting on the tarmac. I told her that I might have won, and I was on the phone going crazy. Then the girl at the place is announcing the winner, and she’s like, ‘Can you please put your phone away and keep it down?'”

The winning horse was named Tebowing.

“I just got a text from (Blackhawks coach Joel) Quenneville and he asked me if I am hungover,” Tice added to the Chicago Tribune. “Nope.”
