Super Bowl is here: heads up!
February 2, 2012 - Neil Rudel
The Super Bowl is Sunday, a true national holiday.
While most of the world is focused on which team to pick -- Patriots or Giants -- I am more focused on something much bigger: the coin flip.
Yep, before you have even settled into your easy chair, millions of dollars will have been won or lost on heads or tails.
(For a complete history, check the link to the right.)
After being dominated by tails for the last 15 years, heads has reversed its fortune and takes a three-game win streak into Indianapolis. Clearly, tails is due.
What we really need is Jerome Bettis to call both!
I'm going to break tradition (I usually pick tails) and go with heads.
As for the game, it should be a toss-up, too.
I like the Giants to win and/or at least cover the 3-point line. The Giants have come through a much tougher road, having to win in Green Bay and San Francisco in order to get here. Plus they're better defensively.
As much as it would be cool to see Bill O'Brien arrive at Penn State as a Super Bowl champion, I'll flip the coin and take the Giants.
Now, two memos to the rest of my family: 1) Keep Sue Condrin to a low roar and; 2) quit crowding the spinach dip!
