NFC: New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears:
Pregame: Well, lingering trauma from the 1985 video, “The Superbowl Shuffle”, prevents me from cheering for the Bears. Ever. And rooting against the Saints is rather like kicking a puppy, so Go Saints!
Halftime: These two are the best teams the NFC could vomit up for their conference championship?
Random thought: Grossman’s QB coach should bitchslap him every time he sidearms a pass.
(On second thought, no he shouldn’t. Asante will eat him for lunch.)
Another random thought: Some of the most blatantly biased referreeing I’ve seen, and as a NE/Boston sports fan, I’ve seen a lot. Did the Chicago mob have the refs’ loved ones tied up in a basement or what?
Postgame: They may as well concede the Super Bowl to “AFC team TBD” right now.
AFC: New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts:
UPDATE: Halftime: 21-6, Pats. I still have no fingernails, though, because it ain’t over til it’s over. And we’re pretty familiar with the come from behind routine, but get nervous when we start out ahead.
UPDATE: Post game: Well, it’s over now, ain’t it? It would have helped if our defensive line wasn’t dehydrated and cramping from the flu, but…whatever.
Go RED SOX!
