Well, it’s here at last…
Remember where you were last year for the big one? The year before? For 10 plus years, Hearne has had the big party at his home. This year, now that he’s single, NO PARTY. So we’re all going to the Woodside event. If you don’t have a place to go, join us at Woodside Country and Tennis Club, starts at 5:30.
Are you like me, do you feel that the Super Bowl has become a National Holiday? I do.
It ranks up there with, uh, Christmas,
We know that because even people who couldn’t care less about who wins, have Super Bowl plans, right? Ask your wife or date who’s playing,
They don’t know and they don’t care, it’s all about food, fun and firewater.
As the readers here know, I picked Green Bay before the season started. Remember? I said, the over on wins for the Packers is 9 1/2 games – it was money in the bank! Well, that meant they needed 10 wins to get there. I sweated that one out. It took until game 16 to get the 10. The last game was at home against the Bears. The Pack pulled it out, but barely.
So I’m sticking with them in the big game.
I think for those in the know, we all agree on this one; IT COULD GO EITHER WAY.
The Steelers led by Big Ben have the experience and recent wins in Super Bowls. The Packers have Aaron Rogers, great receivers and Clay Mathews.
I do think the Steelers have the edge on defense and running the ball. It comes down to Rogers jumping on the Steelers early, like he did against the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs a couple weeks back. Turns out Green Bay is kinda a warm weather indoor team. Rogers throws the ball very hard and in the cold – well, lots of drops. Rogers also gets a bit conservative with leads. He kinda gives it over to the Packers defense a bit early at times.
Big Ben has a big running back and top notch receivers with Hines Ward and company. He makes big plays when needed. I think Aaron Rogers will need his A game and Ben could win with his B game.
However, like, I said indoors favors the Pack and Rogers.
Its a coin toss, two outstanding teams and organizations: Green Bay 28-Steelers 20. The Packers are a 2 1/2 favorite. This should be a great game. Enjoy.
