My wife picks winner based on the cities she likes more, or would want to visit more. Honestly, she does as good as some sports analysists on ESPN...but then, who doesn't?

I like Pete Carroll for his Fire & Energy and Payton For his Class and Professionalism so it's those two in whatever stupid Roman Number this is in the Super Bowl

My NFL picks are about as unscientific as all of yours !  
I save my real skills for the March Madness of the NCAA B-Ball Tourniment.

I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I think that this week's winners will be GB, Atlanta, NE & Denver.
 
Rodgers over Manning in the big one.

With more Poles in Cleveland than there are in Poland, a Guy with a name like Chudzinski, the Brown's new coach should fit in just fine.

Well, With Peyton and his team out of the playoffs and Green Bay behind at the half, My day is pretty bleak.
I guess I will have to cheer for the Seahawks tomorrow, Hate Atlanta and don't care about the other game at all.
Looks like a dark age for my teams this year.

OK with no fanfare at all, on Thursday morning before the coming weekend games, Here's my picks ...made using my likes and dislikes, not due to talent and record of the teams involved...
Denver
Seattle (I hate all Atlanta Sports teams)
Green Bay
New England (by default, I don't care about either team)

AND... The King of the Hill after Superbowl---Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos !

Remind me to bet OPPOSITE of you AL, you were 0 for 2 today and 0 for 1 for the SB.

The Ravens to WIN it ALL for Ray Lewis' last game of his career.
 
Kapernick just flat out RAN OVER and THREW over the Pack.  That kid has got some speed and skills.
 
49ers vs Ravens in the Big Show and the Rays (Rice and Lewis) will kick some 49er arse!

The 49ers sure did the job. Looks like the Packers sent in the scrub team.
My edited picks after yesterdays poor choices.
Seattle over Atlanta (Please !)
Texas pulls a miracle over the Patriots
My emotions say the Ravens take it all, but an all west coast Superbowl would be a real novelty and would be a game to watch.

At this point all I know for certain is that neither the Houston Texans or Atlanta Falcons will be in the BIG GAME.  If either is, "Super Sunday" will be "nap time" for me.
 
A Baltimore - Seattle SB probably would be a 13 - 9 "snoozer", so for entertainment purposes only, I'd like to see the Pats v. the Niners. 
 
(For sentimentality I'd like to see the Ravens win it all for the great and spirited Ray Lewis and also for the wonderful people of Charm City, but somehow I just can't see Joey Flaccid winning "the big one").
 
In any case, the Super Bowl this year will have less interest for me than the next STEELERS draft.

Watching the end of the Falcons/Seahawks game, there seemed to be some questionable decisions made by both coaches.

In light of this weekend's game, I'd say that the 49ers and Patriots are top dogs.

You have 1/2 of it correct:
Lobster Rolls and Beans vs Biscuits & Gravy with a side of Grits
With Lobster winning

I am so disappointed-every team I wanted to win, lost. However, based on food picks, I will go with biscuits and gravy.

Next Sunday doesn't look very promisining. There's one game where I'd like to see both teams lose & one game where I don't care who wins.

Alas...........Crabcakes smothered by Baked beans is just not ON on the menu! So the Crabcakes go.  But those feisty little crabs do seem to have a way to annoy the bottom feeders that everyone once loved to hate and now are a gourmet treat, so who knows? The crabs are faster, but those lobsters just keep plugging along.

Some people are wondering why grits are so popular...they can be rather inconsistent, ranging from thick and strong to soft and weak over a 3-hour period.

My Birds of Prey are going to feed on those Lobsters this weekend
and
Sourdough to sop up the red eye gravy with a ghiradella chocolate cream pie for dessert
 
Then the tough choice will still be crabcakes over Ghiradella
 
I like them both, but LOVE Chocolate.... Ok I LOVE crabcakes too.
 
and in the end.....................................

Tosses Cajun a lemon to use on those Crabs.they'll need the extra "umph" to overcome the simple, but always fulfilling, lobster rolls

For arrival MSY: BWI over BOS; SFO over ATL. 
  
Charter, MSY-BWI carries victors.
 
For all the interest I have in this, I'd far rather arrive GIG, kick back, and read about it a week later.

According to Google nobody has made a Kaepernickel bread yet but IKE's does have a sandwich named after him.

I think we should all come up with a Kaepernickel bread idea and make it for the Super Bowl.
 
My first thoughts were a pumpernickel with swirls to emulate the tattoos.

Good idea. I would also shape the bread like a football, slit the top like football lace stitching and bake on a stone. It's coming together.

As I will have to do something aside from grooming my toenails on "Super Sunday", I'm trying hard to give a sh*t about who wins aside from the fact that I predicted both the participants and Charm City to win in post 211 above.
 
While I expected Ray Lewis et al. to bit*h-slap Brady, Belichek, and the arrogant Pats, I did not expect Joe Flaccid to stand erect and "perform". 
 
The fact that he did makes me believe a bit that his cockiness may extend for him, the most noted of all Mud-Hens, into his next game. 
 
The Niners are, therefore, DOOMED!  
 
And I am left awaiting the STEELERS 2013 draft.

With my new digs in Crofton, MD, and the Redskins long ousted from playoffs, I'm ok with rooting for Baltimore. I may even wear purple on Sunday.

I dont really like R Lewis becuse of issues (just my opinion) so I have to say the 49ers even though that will give them one more SB win than the Cowboys. I really just want to see a good game.

My Prediction was post 190, and I still say the "Rays" will have their day, deer antler fluff and all.
 
HOWEVER I am uping my #'s
 
BWI 34
SFO 16
 
So come on Edgar Allen Poe and his wonderful poem "The Raven" (which is where the team got their name from)

Not so sure that Crabs won't go walking back into the bay...the Chesapeake one.  Think it will be close......but abalone is harder than blue-crabs

I'm going for Dungeness on Sunday, even though I prefer blue claws. Of course, if an Alaska team was in the Super Bowl I'd be rooting for king crabs. Unless they were playing the Giants.

If, in addition, the Ravens' OL can keep the statue-like Joe Flaccid upright:  BWI 27 - SFO 17.

Forget the game! Who won the Best Commercial Award?
I give it to the Bud Light "Goin' to See The Voodoo Doctor" series.
Over-all, i think the commercials were sub-par. Not anywhere near as good as previous Super Bowls.

Tide. At first I was rolling my eyes, and then the end made me literally laugh right out loud. Followed by the Doritos commercial where they were playing princesses.
 
A bunch of my friends are going on and on and ON about the commercial with Paul Harvey talking about farmers. Probably only one in six can name what product was being advertised. I think it was some kind of truck. So while the whole Paul Harvey on farmers things was very cool, it was an abysmal failure at getting anyone to remember what the heck it was for in my book.
 
But yeah...not nearly as good as in past years.

The ads were sub-par. They try too hard in trying to be cute. The only one I thought broke through and really stood out was the Ram Truck Paul Harvey narration of "So God Made a Farmer". That one got my attention.

You didn't know it was Paul Harvey unless you paid attention at the very beginning and of course knew who Paul Harvey by his distinctive voice was otherwise. You didn't know it was Ram Trucks until the very end other than some very subtle hints in the photo narrative. But you're right. I was on another message board and everyone was saying it was Dodge. Dodge was never mentioned or shown. The Ram Truck was separated from Dodge three years ago as as totally separate division. The power of the ad was it is being discussed like right now everywhere.

You know, you're right. I went back and looked, and every single person who said they knew what was being advertised said Dodge, not Ram. I was in the kitchen when it started, but grew up on Paul Harvey so the voice was definitely where it was for me.
 
I got jumped on for saying I didn't think it was a good commercial elsewhere, so let me explain a little better. The message about farmers was phenomenal, and I completely agree. My problem with the commercial is that it could have been for just about anything, so if they were hoping to make their product stick out in the minds of America they failed miserably. Which makes it not a good commercial as far as I'm concerned. I had the same issue with the Jeep ad using Oprah Winfrey talking about military troops. I get that discussion makes it powerful, but if more than half of your audience doesn't know what you were trying to sell them, the ad can't be very effective.

Ah, but they are effective. We are discussing their merits. Why patriotic for Jeep? To make you forget future Jeep production expansion will be in Italy and China not the USA. Why farmers for Ram Trucks? To reinforce Ram as an Americana truck and make you forget Chrysler Group LLc  is now mostly Fiat owned, an Italian company. Read a Tweet that said Ram was their preferred truck because of that ad. The ads were perception plants not intended to extol the virtue or capabilities of Jeep and Ram. If you got up to go to the bathroom you might have never seen those two minute ads because they most likely will not be played again on TV soon because they are too long. They're meant for discussion and Internet replay.

But my point was, few people remember what product it was. Which makes them VERY ineffective at their stated goal. I can only repeat...if more than half of your audience doesn't know what you were trying to see them, the ad can't be very effective. It doesn't matter if they were trying to sell trucks or cereal, if no one remembers what it was, they're not going to sell any.
