Super Bowl Pick

Conference championship weekend was good to me. Both of the road dogs covered. So at 6-4 I am guaranteed to finish with a winning record regardless of my super bowl pick. I have tried to ignore the Super Bowl hype these last two weeks and I have done a pretty good job of it. I just can't take that much yipping about the patriots.

At any rate, I am taking the Giants. I don't think any team should be favored by 11.5 over a team that has one three straight road playoff games. Even if it is the first 18-0 team in the history of the league, yada, yada, yada. I have confidence that Giants can keep this close and they may just be able to win it. I don't smell a blowout as some are predicting. The Patriots have looked fallible the last 4 weeks of the regular season and in both of their playoff games. Brady has not been sharp when he gets pressured. The Giants defense is played inspired football. It's fun to gamble on the team who you want to root for as well. I will be making crab and shrimp bisque. MMMM
