Hey there tootsie roll, time to watch the Super Bowl!

This weekend is the Super Bowl. There are a lot of excited people out there, including myself. My team came nowhere close to even making the playoffs, let alone the big game. Being an NFC fan (Plus Holmgren, Rhodes and Hasselbeck where with the Packers), I’m pulling for the Seahawks to win, and I honestly think they can do it. Yet, for some reason, everyone else I know seems to be pulling for the Steelers and thinking they are going to win. Where are the Seattle fans? Am I the only person that thinks Seattle is going to win?

This brings me to my second issue. I have a minion at work that is a Steelers fan, huge Steelers fan. He claims that the Steelers are going to put the smack down on Seattle. He was so convinced of this he wanted to put a wager on it. You all know I’m not a gambling man; no good comes from gambling. Yet, this one time I bit. Why? He gave me 25 points. Yes, twenty-five points! That means that if the Steelers win 35-10, we tie, if it’s 34-10 I win.

So if there are any other Steeler fans out there that want to offer the same conditions, contact me.

I think you made a wise decision.

What exactly is your workplace's policy on drugs? Sounds as if someone is in clear violation.

What a crackhead...

25 points is definitely insanity, but the Steelers are still going to win. ;)

Being a Washingtonian as I am, I will be pulling for the Seachickens. I might even stop calling them the Seachickens when they win.

Hell, if he's giving 25 points, I'll take the bet and I'm a Steelers fan. Steelers win by 6 or less.
