Prediction Friday: Saints-Colts
We’ve talked about Baltimore’s great announcers -- which was one of the best discussions we’ve had in this place in a while.
And we’ve talked about that horseshoed team in the Midwest, and how most of you -- besides Jack and his island barstool -- want them to lose violently on Sunday.
But now it is time to usher in the final Prediction Friday of the NFL season.
If you are just stopping by for a quick cocktail, this is how it works: Predict the score, the winner/loser and the hero of the game (in this instance, the Super Bowl MVP).
Whoever is closest will receive a free fake cyberdrink tab for the week, and let me tell you, those are coveted.
Here’s my call: I agree with most of you. I can’t bring myself to root for the Colts. It’s just in my Baltimoron DNA (yeah, I said Baltimoron again). So go Saints, I suppose.
That said, I think the Colts are going to win. I think it will be a great game, and likely somewhat of a shootout. But I think the Colts’ defense is just that much better than the Saints. So I say 35-31 Colts.
And my MVP?
Reggie Wayne with three touchdown receptions and 100-plus yards.
Now, take your best shot. We’ll leave this up through the big game.
