    Fourier gave the other ticket to her best friend Diane Arrato Gaverish. They've been watching the Super Bowl games together for 20 years.

    "We would always look at the people depending on wherever the game was and say gee what must it be like to be there," said Gaverish.

    Thanks to Fournier's job, they get to find out.

    "I don't usually win any thing so I was pretty excited," said Fournier.

    With Gail working for Southwest Airlines, their flights are covered. Thanks to Gaverish, so is their lodging.

    "My son and daughter in law have just moved to Minnesota. They live in Minneapolis and they're eight miles from the stadium and we're going to be able to stay with them," Gaverish said.
