I don’t know if you all remember waaayy back in the fall when I wrote my NFL update columns but I did. This weekend the San Francisco FortyNiners and the Baltimore Ravens secured their places in Superbowl 47 to be played February
4 3 in New Orleans.
You will see from the excerpts I’ve included below that I totally called this outcome waaay back in September.
In my AFC review I wrote this:
“Baltimore Ravens – (1-0) I’m willing to give the Ravens a chance because they have such a clever literary name. I’m finally accustomed to saying Indianapolis Colts instead of the Baltimore Colts. LaLa lives in Baltimore and my BFF Kitty is from Baltimore so I will give them a thumbs up.”
“New England Patriots — (1-0) I get annoyed just typing the name of this team. I LOATHE the Patriots. LOATHE the Patriots. DEPLOOOORRE the Patriots and their little Tom Brady, too. And Bill Belichick or however you spell his name. Oh wait, I know how to spell his name: C-H-E-A-T-E-R C-R-Y-B-A-B-Y. Please note I didn’t give them any colors in their name because I don’t like them. Two thumbs down.”
Later in September I had this bit of analysis:
“HAHAHAHA the Ravens beat the New England Patriots.
Ah HAH…. I mock you and everything you stand for Tom Brady!”
Yet another post of keen football insight brought my readers these pearls:
“Even though the Ravens lost; keep cheering for them and QB Joe Flacco because he is a charming, self- deprecating guy according to the interview I saw on ESPN yesterday. The Ravens lost to Philadelphia yesterday which I would have been slightly ho-hum about until I learned that Michael “My pit bull can eat your pit bull” Vick is the Eagles quarterback. The Eagles can suck it. The Philadelphia Eagles are firmly on the NO list.”
“The Patriots lost bwaaaahahahahaha”
And it was clear months ago, that the NFC really didn’t interest me that much so I didn’t even bother to watch the game yesterday.
“Atlanta Falcons – (1-0) Meh.”
“San Francisco 49ers — (1-0) I have to say I am rather comme çi – comme ça on the 49ers. I loved Joe Montana…hottay! SF is a great city. I have detested the ‘niners for a long time because my ex-fiancé is a fan but we have ironed all that out so I won’t hold that against the team. Do with the 49ers what you will. I can’t do everything for you.”
So I think it is completely evident that I called the Ravens-49ers Superbowl four months ago.
I might write a Superbowl prognostication post so check in here before you call your bookie.
