I don't know what's more exciting for me about the Super Bowl: unlimited access to Little Smokies OR the game itself!
I didn't watch the NFL during the regular season. Yes, I know about the political controversies. But my main reason is: it's gotten boring. I think the main problem being experienced by the NFL is that a superior product is on television each Saturday: college football. While regular season NFL action usually involves a bunch of time standing around determining what a catch is, college football has fun action, emotion, and general pageantry.
That said, I did tune into the NFL for the post-season, because that IS an emotional time. And I'll watch the Super Bowl.
I pick the Eagles over the Patriots, 31-28. I think the Eagles LOVE the underdog role and won't get flustered when Tom Brady does something spectacular (and he will). I also think it will be high-scoring game not only because of the offenses - the two DEFENSES finished in the top-five in scoring this year.
Who do you have?
