Heads up: Have a Super Sunday!
February 6, 2011 - Neil Rudel
I'm picking the Steelers. No big mystery. On Super Bowl Sunday, I always root for a great game, and this should be one with a formidable opponent in the Packers.
I could not understand the line when it broke and Green Bay was favored by 3, but maybe the indoor, or at least closed/roof venue, has something to do with it. Aaron Rodgers did look great in his last indoor appearance -- at Atlanta.
But as mentioned on the "Here We Go (Again)" video, choosing the Packers would not make Super Bowl Sunday a whole lot of fun -- especially when surrounded by Black & Gold fans. So I'm going Pittsburgh 24-20.
I'll also be keeping my eye on the coin flip. I'm fascinated that millions of dollars will be won and lost before the kickoff. In the ox on the right is/should be a Super Bowl history of the coin flip. I'm taking heads only because that was my hunch a week ago, and I try not to switch picks at the last minute (some of my friends lost in the suicide pool that way).
Have a Super Sunday.
