The Super Bowl is on Sunday. I know that because I looked it up a couple of weeks ago to make sure that Owen's first birthday party didn't conflict with the Super Bowl, because that would have made my brother cry and I stopped trying to do that when I was about 12.
I am something of a Super Bowl savant. My annual predictions are infallible. In fact, you will most likely want to fly to Vegas (if you already live in Vegas, can everybody stay with you?) as soon as you read my prediction so that you can bet copious amounts of money based on my advice and then pay me a 15% fee once you win. If you lose, you may be sure that you somehow misconstrued my advice and I accept no responsibility for you error.
Are you ready? I predict that the winner of the Super Bowl will be....
(Hold on, I have to go ask Google who is in the Super Bowl this year. Dear nfl.com, you might want to include this information on your website somewhere other than an ad for Cadillac. Just saying.)
Oh. Huh. Well, that's odd. I mean, I read an article about how the economy is impacting the Super Bowl and how they are canceling alot of the hoopla and maybe they decided to try a gimmick to get people spending more money, but this is still just strange. So, in the Super Bowl this year we have the Steelers and the Cardinals. And I have to say, this is one of the toughest predictions of my career since there is so much about this situation I don't know. Like, will the Cardinals get to bring their bats? How will the Infield Fly Rule Apply? Do the Steelers have a left-handed reliever to bring in at the bottom of the sixth?
So many questions, and I have to say that this is the first year in a long time that I am actually interested to watch the game. My official prediction for the winner of Super Bowl 43 is...
The St. Louis Cardinals!
(Huh? Arizona? When did they move?)
