Remember, use my picks to wager $$$ at your own risk. If you lose, I had nothing to do with it. If you win beaucoup $$$, a 10% tip would be cool. But, I’m realistic. This is just for your entertainment…or not, and for me to keep my sports “mojo” going until “I’m back in the saddle”. Remember the league’s unofficial motto…“ON ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, MONDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY OR SATURDAY……….

SUPER BOWL XLV – Cowboys Stadium, Arlington Texas
PITTSBURGH STEELERS (AFC) +3 vs. GREEN BAY PACKERS (NFC) O/U 44.5
-These franchises have won a total of nine Vince Lombardi Trophies between them with the Steelers owning six to the Packers three. Both teams with big time offenses directed by elite quarterbacks. For the Packers, it’s Aaron Rodgers looking for his first Super Bowl Title finally getting out of Brett Favre’s shadow. For the Steelers, it’s Ben Roethlisberger looking for his third championship in six seasons. Defensively, the Packers feature LB Clay Matthews and DB Charles Woodson while the Steelers counter with Defensive Player of the Year, safety Troy Polamalu and LB James Harrison. These teams last met during the 2009 season in the Steel City with Pittsburgh coming away with a 37-36 win. Over 700 yards of combined offense in that one. This Super Bowl could be one fo the best ever if it’s a similar game to the 2009 meeting. Should be plenty of fun watching this game pitting two of the most storied franchises in NFL history. It’s about football as these teams are two of the six teams that feature no cheerleaders. How about the first Super Bowl going overtime. How about 27-24 with Packers kicker Mason Crosby nailing the 41-yard game-winner with seven minutes left in overtime. Considering my conference championship game picks, I’m jinxing Green Bay. I have faith however. PACKERS
45 Super Bowl Sundays ago at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Vince Lombardi led the NFL’s Green Bay Packers to a 35-10 win over the AFL’s Kansas City Chiefs in what was then known as the NFL-AFL World Championship Game. It appears the Golden Anniversary Super Bowl will be held in Los Angeles. More on that following Super Bowl XLV. Enjoy Super Bowl I highlights!
