I guess there's no point in even watching the SuperBowl now

Haley Joel Osment (sp?), the little kid who sees dead people, has the Colts winning Sunday, along with the cast of Gilligans Island and Carrot Top.

Dammit, I was hoping my Bears had a chance, but if those experts picked against them, I may watch re runs of full house or something.


By the way, to see there picks along with other "celebrities", go to ESPN.com

Well, Eric Allen picked the Bears. He's got an impressive 4-6 record this postseason. ;-7

Maybe this will help you.

However, some of the reasons are kinda dumb.

The Bears are seven-point underdogs! Oh, my. Why are we even playing the game?

Here's why: Denver was an 11-point dog to Green Bay in XXXII and won by seven. Washington was a three-point dog to Denver in XXII and won by 32. Kansas City was a 12-point dog to Minnesota in IV and won by 16. New England was a 14-point dog to St. Louis in XXXVI and won by three. The New York Jets were 18-point (it varies) dogs to Baltimore in III and won by nine.

The smart guys in Vegas aren't always so smart.


Still, favorites are 29-11, and favorites by 7 points or more are 17-5.

I saw LT picking the Colts. That's gotta mean something.

Everyone is picking the Colts. I think that Jamaican psychic is picking them as well.

That's fine, wouldn't want it any other way.

And by pointing out that LT picked the colts, and then saying that has to mean something, what exactly does that have to mean? I'll tell you. It means that OF COURSE THE MAN WILL PICK THE AFC TEAM.

That's like saying Def Leapord has an awesomeness problem. Pour some sugar on that

When I first read this last week I was just wondering what the stats were for the favorites. Especially since that was one of 15 reasons the Bears will win. Can't believe that he wouldn't show the stats that are against his reasoning ;-7 But aren't all the experts picking the Bears cause they have no love? Doesn't this happen every year? I've thought the Colts will win the past 2 weeks. Now my wife thinks that the Bears will win because Bears would eat Horses :-D
