Prediction time!

It's been a pretty strange Super Bowl week. First, Senator Arlen Spector, in an unbelievable publicity grab, decided to weigh in on Spygate five months after the event! Apparently Spector decided that it was somehow improper that the NFL destroyed the tapes they confiscated from the Patriots. I'm not exactly sure why, since I don't believe that breaking NFL rules actually constitutes breaking the law. Plus, as I'm sure most of us remember, Bill Belichick and the Patriots were given one of the most severe penalties in league history for Spygate; $750,000 in total fines and the loss of a first round draft pick.

One would think that with a war on, the economy sliding toward a recession, the subprime mortgage crisis, millions of people without health insurance and all the other problems this country faces a United States Senator would have more important things to worry about than this. Even the steroid issue has some public health implications. Mr. Spector needs to get his priorities straight.

Then today, the Boston Herald quoted a "source" (who apparently has no name) that the Pats taped the St. Louis Rams final walkthrough before their win in Super Bowl XXXVI.

Looks like it's open season on the 18-0 Patriots. Fortunately, all this garbage stops tomorrow and we finally play some football.

I have been feeling for over a week that the Pats are going to win this one big. I think this is going to be a case of a good team (the Giants) going up against a great team (the Patriots) and the great team is going to win by a substantial margin. I don't think it's going to be Bears-Pats from Super Bowl XX, but I think the Pats are going to win 38-24.

Check back and see how I did! Go Pats!
