The brains behind the Ruth Chris Steak House campaign that would run alongside the University of Michigan/Rutgers College Football game this past Saturday, probably thought they had a REALLY brilliant idea when they came with the idea of giving fans on their Facebook page, a certain % discount based on how many points Michigan beat Rutgers by (i.e. Michigan wins by 20 points, customer would get 20% off their entire bill) – sounds great right?
Yes, awesome, that is until Michigan completely BLOWS OUT Rutgers to the tune of 78 whopping points.

OOPS! Yes, someone probably got fired, and for good reason. Any team can win on any given day in any sport.
Ruth Chris quickly update the Facebook to read the oh so important disclosure they left out, “Up to 50% Off” (minor detail folks) – they came that was on the original post, but those leaving comments would different.
