We’re (finally) a mere 48 or so hours away from the game and I can’t be the only one who’s antsy for it to get here already.
Local (Milwaukee) media have gone so far overboard on their coverage of the Packers leading up to the game that I’m ready for it to be played just so I don’t have to wait 15 minutes into the nightly news to hear about Egypt.
In case it hasn’t been abundantly clear over the past two weeks that Packers fans are a special kind of nuts, check out this article. It includes the complete text of a letter from the Green Bay Superintendant of Schools. The schools will close early on Monday in anticipation of the team’s return to Green Bay. Should the Packers win, there will be a parade and celebration on Tuesday and the letter let’s parents know that they can take their kids of of school on an excused absence for the celebration.
I know you’ve all been waiting to see where the Ladies… come down on the outcome of this game, so wait no further.
I have to be a homer and pick the Packers. They have the momentum heading in to the game and have had plenty of time to study tape and prepare for the Steelers offense. Aaron Rodgers will cement himself in Packers’ lore and the secondary will have a huge night, netting at least 2 INTs Packers 28, Steelers 20
Games Mistress: 34-21, Packers and Rodgers throws for 300+ yards and 3 TDs, so I can further rue the week his concussion enforced hiatus cost me a berth in my non-Ladies league Super Bowl.
Lady Bee: As Queen of the Way Off Predictions (I called a Bears-Jets Super Bowl), I’ll say Packers 30-27. It will be close and decided on a field goal. We will wake up Monday morning worshipping Mason Crosby.
THE Blonde Bomber: 21-17 Packers
Miss Minda: 24-20 Green Bay. Go Pack Go!
Buffalita: I predict 24-17, Packers. Yes, the Steelers defense is good. But if the Jets can manage to score 19 against them, I have plenty of faith in Rogers
So I have all the Ladies… aboard the Packers’ Super Bowl Wagon. Lets hope we’re not all super disappointed come Monday morning!
