Things just got crazy, crazy for Little Caesars "pizza, pizza".
The company tweeted Friday that if a #16 beats a #1 in men's basketball that night, they'd give everyone in the country a free lunch combo . . . that's a personal deep dish pizza and a bottle of soda.
That SEEMED like a safe bet.
But as all of us with busted brackets know too well, crazy happened.
Friday, the University of Maryland-Baltimore County beat the University of Virginia in the NCAA tournament. It's the first time EVER a number 16 seed beat a number one seed.
So now, on April 2nd, you can go to a participating Little Caesars between 11:30 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. and get yourself a free lunch.
Because "CRAZY HAPPENED" with a #16 beating a #1 (!!!!), everyone in America gets a free #LittleCaesars Lunch Combo on Monday, April 2nd.— Little Caesars (@littlecaesars) March 17, 2018

Legit got depressed when I realized @littlecaesars free pizza wasn't today.— Rock (@YourPalStone) March 19, 2018
I'd pay double not to wait in the 4 hour lines you undoubtedly just generated.— Matthew Mack (@secondeye) March 19, 2018
So big business is using sports bets to get customers now— Riley (@Furrydeerguy) March 19, 2018
