Time to make my picks. Now I could take the sure route to victory and select NE and GB because that seems to be the majority choice. And it is also the point spread choice. But never have been one to go the easy way. So at the risk of losing all these hard earned points, my picks are:

New England and the Giants. I still really like GB and they may just prevail, but something about the way the Giants are playing, the way manning is able to motivate the team makes me think they may just go into Green Bay and come home the winners.

The news a few hours ago had the temperature at -1 F. at game time in Green Bay with a wind chill of -22 F. http://pmc.myweather.net/fc/mc.asp?id=9791

Kind of makes that game rather unpredictable.

When I experienced weather like -22 wind chill in Minneapolis in the winters from 86 through 91, I would often look like the Michelin Man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelin

Since the weather is a "bit" nippy cold cold cold cold,

I'm changing my picks (I can do that, I'm a woman remember?) :dontknow:
Staying with Green Bay!!! Yeah! 040
This is for Dr. Hammer, who I see at 8am tomorrow
and want him to be in a good mood!!!

But, changing from SD to NE (SD will freeze their butts off, I think!)

Kathie :redface: :redface:

Wow. I wanted these two teams to win, but they sure didn't look great today. So hopefully we'll see a great game in Arizona. Then the weather won't be an excuse 8)

Geeze, I thought I won. You guys keep changing the names: New England, New York, New Jersey, San Diego, Green Bay, Cheeseheads, Patriots, Giants, Pats, Chargers, Jets, Oh Vey,

So, who finally won, somebody tell me in plain English, please. Thanks,

As a college kid, I used to work security at Green Bay and Chicago games.
I'll assure you it was beyond freezing yesterday, I can still feel that wicked wind.

One game to go now. G-Men vs Pats
Congratulations to I2ridehd who has picked 8 straight games, missing only the first game (Jax-Pitt). He has clinched a tie for first place regardless of the SuperBowl outcome with 17 points to date, with 22 folks participating in our prestigious handicapping pool here. Here are the standings. If you have 9 points or less (like me) then don't quit your day job because you've chosen less than 50%.

17 points - I2ridehd - Our leader
13 points - Muncle, DickY, zcaveman - still in the hunt

Very Respectable but eliminated from first place contention are:
12 points - beartrack
11 points - Taltarzak
10 points - schotzby, villages07, ejp52, aLn
9 points - JoannP

The rest of us - good lookin' but not great at football selections:
7 points - Kathie1, JohnN, tony, redwitch, MattN
6 points - Time for Tee
4 points - jht
3 points - Bubbalarry, beady, jim16q


I love underdogs and perfection is a bit much , so... even though I picked against 'em every time thinking they played out against the Pats earlier, and couldn't win on the road.
My pick for the SuperBowl - NY Giants

I will go with whom I would like to win now-- the Giants. Nothing to lose with respect to winning the pool.

Don't think this Manning has the experience to get it done. Guess we shall see. Got to believe the Pats want this record (unbeaten) bad. New England 31- Giants 21
