Aaron Rodgers Jackson Five

Aaron Rodgers is everywhere

This being Super Bowl weekend, I decided to go back through the SOB archives to see how my picks have fared in the past.

2011

2010

2009

2008

I was surprised to find I’ve picked the last four winners. I don’t think I had any money on those, and I certainly won’t have any on the big game this year. But that doesn’t mean I can’t keep the streak intact.

This year the New England Patriots are favored by 3 points against the Giants. Last week I read about a rapper named Birdman who wants to place a $5 million bet on the Pats. He has a nephew that plays on the team, or some shit. That’s enough for me to root for the Giants +3.

Other picks:

Length of Kelly Clarkson’s National Anthem

Over 1 minutes 34 seconds (-120)
Under 1 minute 34 seconds (-120)

Analysis: Last year the sports books were right on the number with Christina Aguilera. But Kelly Clarkson’s average anthem at a sporting event is 1:31. She’s not a diva like some of the others, so I can’t really see her holding onto notes and getting out of her comfort zone.

Pick: Under

Coin Toss
Heads (-115)
Tails (-115)

Pick: Heads

Player to score the first TD in the game?

Pick: Victor Cruz (NYG) WR (7/1)

What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

Pick: Orange (5/2)

Gator boots with the pimped out Gucci suits
Ain’t got no job, but I stay sharp
Can’t pay my rent, cause all my money’s spent
But that’s okay, cause I’m Still Fly
