My Super Bowl Game Prediction

I’ll be watching my “New England Patriots America’s Game 3 DVD Set Collection” while doing a couple loads of laundry.

Yep. I’m serious.

..and, it seems I won’t be alone, what with 18,000 tickets for the big event going unsold 48 hours before kickoff, according to CBS New York.

I don’t know if it’s the ticket prices ($3,000 to $14,000 each, plus a hotel room at about $150, along with the usual expenses for drinks, food, drinks, souvenirs, tips, and of course, drinks), the fact that no New England team is playing (Patriots? Too hurt. Jets? Too untalented. Giants? Too pathetic.), or the location (New Jersey? Really?!? What exit?).

Perhaps it’s the lackluster economy, memories of the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, Global Warming Global Cooling, or that watching the game on a ginormous high-definition flat screen TV with surround sound broadcasting umpteen various camera angles and closeups, an unceasing barrage of team, player, and statistical minutiae, the obligatory Gatorade shot, and clever ads* with your food, booze, Barcalounger already paid for and just outside of arm’s reach makes attending the event in person rather anti-climactic.

Or maybe it’s the simplest reason of all: It’s a school night.

And, for those of you who’ve read down this far, here’s my actual prediction… which you can take to the bank (just don’t try to deposit it, based on my prediction for the 2013 Boston Red Sox :-)

Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 24-21 with a late-game field goal. (The fact that I like Pete Carroll and am not a fan of Peyton Manning has absolutely nothing to do with it – honest!)

*I may be recording the game, though: Rumor is Apple will run an ad to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Macintosh.

Thanks for reading! (and, Let’s Go Patriots!)
