Debate Camp: Super Bowl

Step right up, folks, be the first one on your block to publicly predict the final score of Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

I'm takin' Bill Cowher and Ben Roethlisberger (pictured below) and the rest of the Steelers by a count of 29-24. Not sure why, or how, but that's the way I sees it. Sure it's been two weeks, but you don't pick against the hottest team in the league.

What say you, Slackers? Get it on record now so we can point and laugh at the idiots come Monday morning.

Either way, I think this game is going to be memorable in some capacity. Usually when we all think there's a dull game, both teams provide us with one for the ages.

**Update** After hearing this pro-Pittsburgh song that Matty Mac just forwarded my way, I think I'll take the Seahawks now. Although, it really does have a sick bass line...

I think that Pittsburgh just might pull it off, but what do I know?

Indy 42 Seattle 23...FUCKING Ben and his one armed tackle.

As a life long die hard Brownies fan it is impossible for me to type the P word without causing an instant seizure. To predict the assbags to win, as I'm sure they will, would cause my heart to explode. It's also fantastic that my work sidekick is a total squeelers fan and will remind me of their Superbowl victory daily for the next fucking 365 dsys.

Am I the only one one on the face of God's green earth that wouldn't like to smash Cowhers face in with an Easton 36" aluminum bat when he gets that intense whacko slobbering slack jawed look on his face.

My dream come true would be as follows:

1:00 left in the game

squeelers up by 5

Seattle driving

Jerry Porter tips a Hasselback pass that is intercepted by Polamalu

Polamalu is snapped up by his hair and is swung so violently his head snaps off causing him to fumble

The fumble is picked up by Shaun Alexander who scampers into the endzone as time expires.

Cowher, in his frustration, screams at a line judge until he drowns in his own spit.

Heaven...simply heaven.

close until the end when big ben throws an ugly duckling resembling the aerodynamics of that bottle of patron that is snatched out of the air and jerome's parents life expectancy goes down by a decade in front of our eyes

what would happen if gladys bettis married former big leaguer gary pettis? she could totally be gladys bettis-pettis. awesome.

Did you just threaten Gladys Bettis, ER? I think she's got her own secret service, I'd watch yo' ass.

KWynn, I think it's time to take a couple valium and wash it down with some cyanide juice. Although I can't say I disagree with your prediction, it sounds spot on.

I don't give a shit about the score...I refuse to throw any more money in to those freaking football pools. I just want Pittsburgh to win.

See, Ace, twice in one day! Didn't want you to miss me too much.

Well, the real Ace Cowboy's pick is in, according to this ESPN article:

BOB WEIR, Grateful Dead guitarist:

I'm reluctantly picking Pittsburgh because brutal, blue collar football almost always trumps high-end, sophisticated football. The 49ers were the great exception. I do think it'll be a pretty defensive game. 24-21.

He then added, "A heeeeeyyyyyyyy. A heeeeeeyyyyy. He-uh come the rain!"

I really despise Hacksaw Jim Duggan. He was always such an idiot. He gave patriots everywhere a bad name. And I'll never forgive him for getting the Killer Bees disqualified at WrestleMania III when he hit the Iron Sheik with the 2x4.

And get this, Ace: The real Jim Duggan is still alive!

"I've called them since the beginning, so no stopping now."

following suit, ace's real prediction:

Jets still field a team? Ohhhh you mean the hockey Jets that expired in the 90's ..now THEY would have had a much better shot at making the Superbowl.Burn. Sorry, musta been that cyanide juice chaser. Or was it?

Stealy, looks like a couple people have Seattle besides you...and I know more than a handful off Slack who agree as well. I just don't see how you can pick against the Steelers after seeing what they've done in the playoffs. And hey, good to see you post on here after our PT dialogue this week.

E-Train, that hurts man. That hurts. I thought we had something. You and I both know the Jets were screwed all year by the refs. Yeah, that's it, the refs. And the back judges.

Cyanide for all!

Various other "Jets" that had a better chance at making the Superbowl.

Jet Blue flight attendants
Bennie and the Jets
Jet Magazine interns
Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS)
Winnipeg Jets All-stars
JETS: Jockeys Employment and Training Scheme

I know, I know..when did Cleveland when a Superbowl you might ask or attempt to retaliate with..well my friend it was 2001 when they were called the RAVENS. More cyanide please.

Steelers 13 Seahawks 10

I keep doubting the Seahawks, because i think they're kind of lucky, but I also keep being wrong about them, so I'll take them 20-14 in a snoozer.
