I'm not picking a winner for tomorrow's game, but since I'm not above getting a good laugh at my own expense, here's what I had to say about this year's Superbowl participants in my NFL preseason predictions:
Pittsburgh Steelers—With both running backs hurt and Ben Roethisberger poised to experience a sophomore slump, I can’t expect the Steelers to repeat another title run. (And now, Tuck will attempt to light my hair on fire...)
I picked the Ravens to win the AFC North, with the Bengals third. Doh!!!
Seattle Seahawks—The so-called experts like Seattle to win the division again this year. My question is why? They should have the helmet logo in the dictionary under "inconsistent."
I had the Rams picked to win the West. I am such a homer it's almost sickening.
Then there were my playoff picks...
NFC Division Winners:
AFC Playoff teams:
(right on two)
New York Jets (what?)
Houston (uh, I had just taken some cough medicine...)
Oh well, if you can't be right, at least be funny! I'm going to root for the Steelers, but I think it's just plain bad karma for them if I officially pick them to win, don't you?
