Super Bowl Predictions

To date, T has an incredible knack for predictions when it comes to football, from predicting someone's yardage within 10 yards to the BCS score, off by three points.

He has no idea why he knows sometimes. The BCS bowl he predicted based on 'intangibles'.

This was our conversation today:

Me: Who is going to win?

T: Ravens. Unfortunately. It will be the Ravens.

(Sidenote, he wanted the Pats to be there, so he's disappointed it's anyone but the Pats.)

Me: Really? So what are we basing this on? Intangibles?

T: The God factor.

Me: The God factor? What the heck? God is on their side?

T: I have absolutely no other way to explain why they ended up where they did, other than the God factor.

Me: God loves the Ravens?

T: Ray Lewis. He and Ray Lewis are tight.

Me: The murderer?

T: Mom. 'ALLEGED' murderer...

Me: And was he allegedly married four times?

T: I have no explanation for that. He just talks to God a lot.

Me: Asking for forgiveness for being an A-hole previously?

T: Could be. I can't explain it. I just know he talks to God and God appears to listen...

Ringo walked in, having left to watch the game at a friend's house, but having forgotten something.

He was running through the house. I teasingly yelled after him, as kick-off hadn't even happened.

Me: Yo. Great game! Who won?

Ringo: The 49ers!

Me: Really? Cuz T thinks it's going to be the Ravens.

Ringo, stopped and stared: Really? He said that? Why?

Me: The God Factor. Ray Lewis.

Ringo rolled his eyes, ran back to his bedroom and yelled over his shoulder: The murderer who's been married four times? The God factor? Right. It'll be the 49ers.

So T says 21-17 Ravens.

Ringo says it'll be the 49ers and T just picked the score because it's an easy score.

Maybe they'll tie...

Tell T right idea, wrong player. A bunch of us where praying for #81 Anquan Boldin from Pahokee. K is friend's with his uncle. Talk about a great beginning to the game. And an exciting ending.

OH I saw that about Boldin. But, T wasn't aware of him. I remember when Boldin played for Pahokee.

Was there a game yesterday? I was too busy out shovelling (well, blowing) snow.
