Last night was a monumental evening. Well, for me anyway. Two things happened. One was I launched my official Gal For All Seasons podcast. I didn’t know how I would feel about just talking to myself for a half hour, but I think it could have gone a lot worse. Many thanks to NDB Media for producing the show. Looking forward to working with you guys over there.
The other thing was that I actually made some Super Bowl predictions. I don’t really care about the outcome — I won’t cry if the Patriots lose, but I usually root for AFC in the Bowl. I didn’t last year (mostly because I hated the Steelers and really have a fangirl crush on Aaron Rodgers). This year, for obvious reasons, I won’t be either. But I’m not exactly rooting for the Giants either. Getting all that out of the way, I have some predictions that I mentioned on the show.
One is that I think this will be a high scoring game. I also think it’s Tom Brady’s game to lose. If you think about it, the Giants are going into this game with absolutely no pressure. They won in 2008, and they could very well win again, against a “superior” quarterback in Brady (blech). If the Giants win, they’ve toppled over Goliath. If the Patriots win, well, they beat a team that got by on luck. It could go either way. But I’m predicting a BIG time Brady choke.
Also predicted a big game from Victor Cruz. Probably one of the few Giants whom I sincerely like. How can I hate on a guy who relishes his Jerseyness?
I also predict that I’ll be eating a lot of carbs. I’ll be fat and happy on the couch. That’s something I know I’ll be getting right.
Most of all, enjoy yourselves and drink responsibly. And that’s a view from The Coop!
