My 2012 Super Bowl Pick – And Other Notes…

Well…it’s here. The Super Bowl! Most watched television event in the world. And being that I write a sports blog, of course people have inquired as to who I’m picking. Well…

  • At the beginning of the season, I predicted either the Atlanta Falcons or New Orleans Saints would face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. Depending on which of those teams they played, I predicted a win or a loss for the ol’ Pats. Well – neither of my predicted choices from the NFC came true. Instead, we all know the NY Giantsare the opponent. So…who wins? 

    I'm picking Victor Ortiz and the NY Giants to win this year's Super Bowl.

     

    I’m going with the G-Men.Even though it’s a revenge game, and the Patriots have been rolling along smoothly – I almost always pick the better defense to win a Super Bowl (the exception being when I sided with the Indianapolis Colts to win against the Chicago Bears). The Giants are sound, confident, and fierce – and Eli Manning can literally prove his “I’m as good as Tom Brady” statement right by facing the man himself. Tom Coughlin is one of the better coaches in the league, and I just think they pull it out in the end. I’m thinking both teams may score in the 30s…but I give the nod to Eli & company.

  • Some won’t admit it, but I’m not a hater – so I have no problem doing so. LeBron James?? Yeah – that dude currently has the MVP trophy ON LOCK. He’s playing so out of this world, I don’t think most fans are even noticing how easily he’s getting his numbers – and that’s on a team with 2 other all-stars and Olympians!! He still ain’t spit in the 4th quarter – but I ain’t hearing NO ONE as a better MVP candidate currently.
  • Kenyon Martin agreed to sign with the L.A. Clippers. Talk about the rich getting richer…what was that about the big city teams being too strong, David Stern??
  • Caroline Wozniacki is no longer ranked #1 in the world for tennis. This makes me sad – she’s my favorite player…
  • Damn – so many people are just waiting for Tiger Woods to return to dominance…how many times is he going to get close to winning, just to LeBron it in the end??
  • Floyd Mayweather is going to kill Miguel Cotto. Count me as someone who may not even bother to watch. Ditto for whomever Pac-Man fights. These two and their shenanigans tire me.
  • The best college basketball coach not named Krzyzewski or Boeheim is apparently taking a break from the game
  • How come no one is talking about the NHL’s collective bargaining fight that’s looming? Never mind – the question was rhetorical…
  • So you really want to be the guy who cut the greatest QB in franchise history, huh Jim Irsay? Ego is a hell of a drug.
  • I’d love to see the city of Buffalo stop being a bunch of thin-skinned wussies and stop crying that Tom Brady doesn’t like their hotels. I’ve got news for you, Buffalo – I’m FROM Buffalo and I agree the hotels here don’t compare to good hotels in major cities. Stop crying about the truth.
  • Syracuse is getting center Fab Melo back this Saturday. That sound you heard was Orange fans rushing to book accommodations for the 2012 Final Four

Well, that’s all I’ve got. Enjoy your weekends, and enjoy The Super Bowl Sunday! Oh – and please don’t ask me what my favorite commercial was. I actually watch The Super Bowl for the game, not the ads. Commercials mean time to go use the bathroom or grab some food for me. Lolz…

Until next time…Shoot, Pass, Quibble!
