In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a fairly big game in the NFL this weekend between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pretty much everyone on earth will be watching, except maybe Dennis Green who will be too busy pulling weeds along the high-road (he likes to keep it nice and neat-looking). I normally steer away from predictions, given my less-than-stellar success ratio, but today I’m going to make an exception:
I predict that there will be a pre-game interview segment with Larry Fitzgerald and his sportswriter father Larry, Sr. in which it is mentioned that Larry, Jr. used to be a ball-boy for the Vikings.
I also predict that halftime performer Bruce Springsteen will play a song about how hard it is for the working man (he will not, however, do a steamy dance number that ends with him exposing Steven Van Zandt‘s nipple).
And I forsee at least three commercials featuring talking animals (or perhaps babies, cause that’s so damn adorable).
And, having gazed into my crystal ball one more time, I predict that Al Michaels will mention the over/under no fewer than twice.
