Super Bowl XLIV Tonight!

Annually, the most watched sporting event in America is the Super Bowl, leading many to want to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday.  I mean, who needs a day off to pay homage to the Presidents anyway (it’s kind of monarchical isn’t it)?  Plus, lately most have been bums one way or another.  Think about all the lost work tomorrow — people calling in sick, people hungover not working as hard, all the time divvying up office pools, and all the general time wasted talking about the Big Game.  It could cost the economy billions as it has in years past!  I’m just sayin’.

But, onto the Big Game itself!  The Indianapolis Colts (16-2) look to win their second Super Bowl in four seasons as they take on the New Orleans Saints (15-3), a team everyone seems to be rooting for in their hearts, who are making their first appearance ever in a Super Bowl.  However, Vegas sees the Colts as six-point favorites over the Saints when they play tonight at 6:25pm EST in Miami.

While I’d like to see the Saints keep it competitive (and wouldn’t lose sleep if they won), I just don’t think that’s going to happen.  In fact, I’d take the Colts by 10 after a pretty close first half.  Heck, I even think the Saints will probably score first!  However, the Colts’ Peyton Manning is humming on a different level than most quarterbacks and after settling down, will carve up the Saints’ defense aptly.

So, go to the party, check out the wacky commercials and The Who halftime show, call in sick tomorrow, and hopefully we’ll have a competitive game!

UPDATE: Boy was I wrong!!!  I guess that’s why they play the game:  31-17 Saints!
