Patriots by 7. No way Brady is going allow a repeat of four years ago.

UPDATE: Giants 21, Patriots 17. Oops.

Commercial of the night, which I’m sure our Republican friends did not like one bit:

Today is the day that the millionaires in the tight pants take turns knocking each other down to see who will get the honor of progressing to what is called The Super Bowl (thereby adding a few hundred thousand to their paychecks). How do you think the day will play out?

Of the two games being played today, the first will be the best. The second will be something of a blowout.

My prediction: Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints.

What do I win if I’m right?

UPDATE #1: Indianapolis Colts 30; New York Jets 17.
UPDATE #2: New Orleans Saints 31; Minnesota Vikings 28.

I look for the Colts to win the Super Bowl in Miami in two weeks.

In the United States today it is all about football. Pittsburgh Steelers versus Arizona Cardinals. Almost nobody is thinking about anything else. It’s like an annual ritual in this country… a rite of passage… when the boys become men and the women become, well, men.

This year, the Steelers and the Cardinals will be opening for Bruce Springsteen. The Boss is playing at half time.

Commercials. Everyone waits to see the commercials. At three million bucks for a thirty second spot, they’d better be good. A few are. Who will ever forget the Budweiser frogs or Mean Joe Green tossing that kid that bottle of Coke?

I kind of doubt you’ll see this commercial during the game tonight, but I think it is the best I have seen in a while. It’s sure to turn up on some of those “funniest commercials” programs in the not too distant future…

I think that one should definitely win some awards.

So… what are your plans for watching the game? Having a few friends over like President Obama is? Going to a party at someone else’s place? Who are you cheering for? (Cardinals here… I’m always for the underdog.) Whatever you do, please don’t drink and drive. Go easy on the beer, pizza, chips and dip… or not. Be like the bear in the commercial if you must. Have fun!

P.S. If you are looking for something good to read while waiting for kick-off time, please allow me to recommend Frank Rich’s column today: “Herbert Hoover Lives.”
