Super Bowl Prediction

Share
Like most of the rest of the country (and hundreds of millions more people around the world), I will plop myself in front of the televion tonight and watch Super Bowl XLI.

I predict a 27-21 Indianapolis Colts victory over the Chicago Bears, highlighted by a late 4th quarter drive that ends in an Adam Vinatieri field goal to seal the win.

The keys to the game will be the ability of the Colts to avoid turnovers to the mighty defense of the Bears, as well as the Colts preventing return man Devin Hester from running a kick back for a touchdown.

It's a cliche, but may the best team win, and I hope that Super Bowl XLI is a competitive game, that the ads live up to the hype, and that halftime performer Prince keeps all of his clothes on.

No way - Da Bears 24-14. Peyton gets picked twice.

You had to go and ruin a perfectly good post by giving me that horrible, yet thankfully brief mental picture of Prince taking clothes off. Ugh...

Not that I watch the halftime show.

I think Peyton will play smart, but any fumbles by the Indy running backs could be deadly, JD.

Agreed, MArk, that halftime is a good time to leave the room. The best commercials will happen during the game, I suspect.

And Prince? Strange choice for halftime, other than the fact that he will appeal to 35-50 year olds. He has not exactly been lighting up the charts this decade.

Yeah but neither has Paul McCartney or the Rolling Stones and they were picked in recent years. This days, Prince is seen as a safe choice, who should put on a good show.

Hey, 29-17 score Mike. Not too far off your prediction, really.
