So in the end we pretty much got what we all expected as the Super Bowl match-up. All of us except for this guy of course. You might think that a match-up of the 1 seeds in the Super Bowl is very predictable, however, this is the first time it's happened since Super Bowl XXVIII, so stop thinking stupid shit like that ok? The Colts and Saints have proven once and for all that it's always best to back your way into the playoffs and respect the integrity of the game as little as possible. Their seasons have mirrored each other in many ways. Both won at least their first 13 games, both had prolific passing attacks led by top-notch QBs, both of them played indoors, both of them have Pierres (not enough has been made of this), both of them fielded 53 players each week, all of their players wore helmets while playing (except for the Saints' long snapper Shecky Ferguson who has stated that playing without a helmet is "All he knows"). So, as you can see, these teams have been inexorably linked all year. So who will win?
Why? They haven't really lost yet; and we all know that teams that come in to the Super Bowl undefeated always win.
And now for some extra picks (I got the lines from a reputable sports gaming website. Well most of them anyway.):
-Over/Under 57: Obviously I'm going Under here.
-MVP: Peyton Manning. Why overthink this? If they win it's because of him.
-Coin Toss: I'm feeling Saints on this one.
-Brees's 1st Pass: Complete!
-Over/Under 1:42 on the National Anthem: Under. I think Underwood takes care of business.
-Player to Score 1st TD: Joseph Addai (Although Shecky Ferguson is getting good odds.)
-Over/Under 1.5 Times CBS Will Show Tony Dungy: Over. This is my lock of the week, I mean, this might be a winner before kick-off, assuming he's going to be at the game of course ...
-Over/Under .5 Times Anyone Mentions Super Bowl XL At Any Time. Pre-game Included: Under. This game has more or less been forgotten by the general public, and thank God for that.
-Over/Under 9.5 Beers I Drink: I'm gonna go over. Especially if I'm wrong about that last pick.
Ok, so there ya go. Please comment with your picks.
