Who's going to Jeff's Super Bowl? The Patriots and Bears. Who will I be rooting for? The Colts and Bears.
But unlike many, many years, I'm fine with whomever ends up in the big game in two weeks. Pats-Bears, Pats-Saints, Colts-Bears, Colts-Saints, Daniel LaRusso-Johnny Lawrence, whatever. All would be compelling matchups for different reasons.
Let's break open the chips & dip, pizza and wings, and now that I'm in my 30s, the Pepcid Complete and watch some football!
UPDATE 6:47 p.m. - 1-for-1 with Da Bears manhandling New Orleans. Not to put too weird an analogy on the game, but wasn't it like the Battle of the Bulge, with Chicago as the Allies pushing through Axis lines, the Axis fights hard briefly but ultimately is overwhelmed. Or the Saints couldn't hold onto the ball. Either way.
UPDATE 10:20 p.m. - Good for the Colts! Even better for Peyton! Nice to see them finally get that Patriots monkey off their backs. And all the folks who tired of seeing New England have no excuse for Super Bowl XLI in two weeks. Early edge for the game? I've gotta say the Colts, but the Bears defense is so good I don't think I would confident betting my own money. No matter how much praise Peyton gets, though, he still has to win the Super Bowl or he'll forever be compared to Dan Marino.
