NEW YORK, NY – Alas, it is Super Bowl Sunday, which is bigger than Christmas for many in this country. Yours truly is somewhat attention-splintered, as this thing called the Six Nations (6 European nations battling in rugby) is in full swing. Speaking of swingers, Spring Training is underway! But while we’ll be talking rugby briefly below, the crux of this will be piggybacking Angry Ward’s excellent piece on Super Bowl Prop Bets, earlier this week.
Dick Vermeil Mentions – Over/Under 3Will the passionate, spec-wearing coach of the Eagles team that lost to the Super Bowl to Howie Long’s Raiders be brought up three times?
Jaws vs Saint Nick
Will the aforementioned Dick’s QB, Ron Jaworski, be referenced more than winner Nick Foles? One would think the easy money is on the much more recent winner, rather than the loser of yesteryear. But that’s why we play the games!
The Hunt family owns the Chiefs. We all know that. We all also know there is ZERO chance they will mention family member Mike Hunt (ahem). But will they pan to single, hottie heiress Gracie Hunt. You can’t bet your bippie on that! But how many times? The Over/Under is 5. If only she had feet.
Pat Mahomes vs Joe Cool
No, we’re not talking Joe Burrow, who is NOT the Joe Cool many of us know. This is Joe Montana, the real JC… Calling anyone but Montana this is like calling anyone but Tom Seaver Tom Terrific. You hear me, Tompa Brady? Anyway… this is a two-parter:
1) Will Joe Montana be mentioned?
2) Will Joe Montana be compared to Pat Mahomes?
You could calling argue that Joe The Camel Joe Cool is okay, but let’s keep it to football.
With that, let’s segue to football’s father, rugby!
