Well, 8 is statistically the middle of the deck (7.5 exactly I think) So, against 4 random cards, 2 overcards should exist. A pair against 2 overcards is roughly a 50-50 (push pair) to win, so getting 3:1 return on money makes sense to me.
Thats what I was thinking initially when I played the hand, but when it was over I realized that the first caller must have had atleast 2 overs on me and the all in guy would have 2 random cards, or 1 over, so Im up against 3 overs. Normally I fold this, but I was in a gambling mood though so I called and then shoved the favorable flop.
