Super Bowl Sunday

I don't have any particular interest in this year's Super Bowl, but you can bet I'll be watching. This will be the first year in a long time that I won't be watching with my college buddies, Chris and Ecker. Chris was my college roommate, and Ecker (that's Dr. Ecker to you) is a professor in the math department. Every year we'd get together for the Super Bowl, the NFL Draft, and other random occasions, but now that I'm 800+ miles away that's not going to happen this year. We still keep in touch and make our sports picks, and I've put this year's Super Bowl picks for all to see:

Chris has made the best playoff picks so far, riding Carolina all the way to the big game. I've been picking against them consistently and am sticking with that strategy now. Oh well, it's not like there's anything riding on all of this - just a little fun and a reason to pay close attention to the game.
