For fear of being sued, I will refer to the ‘super’ game on Sunday that the whole world will be watching as…The Bowl. Given the litigious society in which we live, I would not put it past the NFL to come after me for trademark infringement. I wonder if there will come a time when we won’t even be able to even speak the title?
I will be one of few people in the civilized world who will not be able to watch The Bowl, I will, unfortunately, be on a plane, with no televisions…but plenty of free scotch, & for not having TV’s, I will cost the airline in scotch what they could have paid for in TV’s! Damn work schedule, keeping me away from The Bowl parties. I could have flown in early, but that wasn’t conducive to my quality home time.
So, I will make my prediction now & find out if I’m right about a ½ hour after the trophy is dealt. I’m having trouble going against Peyton and what appears to be the Broncos season of destiny to lose. They have a solid defense & great receivers that know their routes. No disrespect to Seattle, but I think the coaching staff on Denver is, collectively, better as well, so Broncos is my pick. Over-under is tougher to judge, 2 good defenses, 2 offenses able to execute…hmm…at the time of posting this, MGM Mirage had 48, and I’m picking the Broncos & under.
Have fun at the biggest collective sports party and raise a shot to…oh hell, whatever you want. I’ll actually be flying over Denver at some point in the 3rd quarter and will raise a scotch to you all, salute! Take a cab or designate the lightweight in your group who won’t drink anyway as sober driver – be safe!
