Feb. 5.10: Waiting for Sunday.

I’m really glad Orlando Hudson has signed with Minnesota, ending all that silly talk of the Mets signing him and trading Luis Castillo. That was never going to happen. So, with nothing going on with the Mets right now – as opposed to the entire offseason – let’s open it up today to talk about the Super Bowl.

Like everybody else Sunday, I’ll be watching the Colts and Saints. I’m glad the Saints are in it, but I’ve always liked the Colts, even when they were in Baltimore and crushed my Browns in the playoffs.

Since everybody thinks this will be high scoring, watch the final be 17-14. It usually works out that way, doesn’t it?

So, if you’d like to take a break from baseball – kind of like how the Mets have this winter – let’s hear your thoughts on the Super Bowl.

  1. Nice change of pace, John

    I too like the Colts and Peyton Manning in this game. As I told Tony the other night, it’s the Colts 32, the Saints 24.

    As Tony Dungy once said to Peyton, “Chance favors the prepared mind”.

  2. The bad thing about the Hudson deal is that it is only one year so the same crap will start up again very quickly.

  3. I am not sure I will be able to see it.

    May be working.

    Minnesota blew it. The Saints should not be playing tomorrow. I am not sure how good the Colts are. Their D needs to come. Two high scoring teams I am not familiar with so I don’t have much opinion on it.

    I hope it is a good game if I get a chance to watch.

  4. 4. Don’t agreea bout the Saints. You turn the ball over what 4/5 times, you don’t belong in no super Bowl. Plus, its good for Miami. They’ve had lots of rain. They don’t need the flood of tears from the NFLs biggest crybaby, Brett…..

  5. I will be working Sunday night. I may just VCR it just to see how old Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are nowadays. Do The Who have more greatest hits/compilation albums than actual albums?

    I see where Roger Goodell is saying the NFL will keep the overtime rules the same. Sure, why not? You have had a highly flawed system for 35 years, so what’s another 35 years? Peter King of SI points out that only seven times has the team winning the coin toss has kicked off. Why not change the NBA or MLB so the first team who scores in OT automatically wins? But like they are with PED usage, PSL seating, racist hiring practices before the Roodey rule,a dreadful disability plan for their players, the NFL is teflon-coated.
