Super Pick



OK, I'm picking the Colts to win the Super Bowl...

UNLESS...

wait for it...

UNLESS...

the same group of referees who called the Vikings vs. Saints game are going to referee this match, well then I'm picking the Saints as the winner.

In case you didn't watch the Vikings vs. Saints game, the NFL came out and admitted that 5, count 'em 5, calls made by the refs were wrongly called against the Vikings.

What? What? What?

I'm hoping that the Colts overcome the crappy calls and stomp the Saints.

I'm picking the Colts 35-17 as I wear my Peyton Manning jersey and will overlook any calls made in their favor.

Ha! I'm with you two... go Colts! I did not hear that about the bad calls. What a rip!

I'm a little indifferent. I tend to like the Colts and my gut is they are the better team but I don't really have a dog in this hunt.

Jan: I don't know enough to give a point spread of my own, but I like yours.

Ananda Girl: It made me so mad. I really wanted to see Farve get another shot at the Super Bowl.

Chuck: I hear you. Even though the Bucs beat the Saints this season (I love saying that, especially to Saints fans) I had no illusions about them even getting close to the Super Bowl. So I had to go for my second best choice.

The Colts last coach was Tony Dungy and, before he went to Indianapolis, he coached the Bucs. So there is some fealty there. And there's also Peyton.

I'm rooting for the Colts too. I thought the referees with the best records were the ones picked for the Super Bowl. How did this happen?

OMG, Cube, my hubby and I were SCREAMING during that game!!!

I pick the Colts, too, hopefully...

Debbie: I said I was picking the Colts UNLESS the same refs that referreed the Sants Vs. Vikings game are working tomorrow in which case I would predict a Saints victory.

They practically gave the game to the Saints. I can see an occasional bad call, but not 5 against the same team!

Brooke: So were we. It was such a rollercoaster of a game. I was exhausted emotionally by the end.

I too rooted for the Colts.

But then again so did Obama.

So how did you take the Who's performance? I commented on that over on my blog.
