It’s been awhile since one of my favorite teams won it all, and I’ve missed the feeling. I’ve been on a high since the Ravens beat Denver last month thanks to Jacoby Jones’ “Mile High Miracle,” and I’m not about to come down. The momentum from that game carried the Ravens into Foxborough, 9 point underdogs for the second week in a row. The Patriots did not stand a chance.
As Games Mistress mentioned yesterday, people love to bet on the Super Bowl. It’s always fun to play in a box pool or bet on the winner or even the coin toss (as I’m typing this, the Papa John’s commercial about winning the coin toss and getting free pizza is on). I already know who I’m rooting for, so a “who’s going to win” bet is out of the cards for me. For years, my friends, family and I made fun bets with nothing actually being wagered, but this year I thought it’d be fun to introduce some prop bets to our party. Here’s a list of fun prop bets for your party, especially if you don’t have any rooting interests.
So I was going to give this post the “Hump Day Hotties” tag, but I thought I might get some flack over it. So instead, I’m just going to use this post to introduce you to Joe Flacco, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. Joe has caused a hysteria in Baltimore. See, we folks from Charm City don’t know what a real quarterback actually is. That is until Mr. Flacco arrived in town.
For years we have tried to find that “Franchise Quarterback,” but he never seemed to develop. While I was partial to Kyle Boller (solely on looks, btw), others were calling for his head from the moment we drafted him. Hell, we went a month during our Super Bowl season without scoring an offensive TD! And we won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer under center! Even Disney acknowledges that Trent Dilfer sucks! Can you say “Defense,” much?
So needless to say we’re all pretty stoked that Flacco has taken the reigns of our offense. I personally don’t think he’s bad to look at, either. I think his Bert-esque eyebrows are what throw people off, but if he would just tweeze them up a little bit, he’d be a bonafide hottie. I think he’s adorable, despite the brow problem. I’m sucker for a guy with dimples!
