I feel as if I’ve let readers down. I predicted a 13-point Indianapolis victory, and the Colts won Super Bowl XLI by 12. I hadn’t anticipated that Indianapolis would miss an extra point. Sorry.
I finished the season by picking nine of the final 12 games against the spread.
Look, I know the rain was unpleasant. But tickets to the Super Bowl go for $600 and $700. Why do you pay that much for a ticket and walk out of Dolphin Stadium early in the third quarter?
How about because the ticket was provided by a client or an employer and the folks back home won’t know you took off early when you enthrall them with tales of the game and the scene.
