No, we didn’t cut the image off prematurely. That’s the actual display from a Boston area grocery store. The Pepsi guy apparently didn’t judge the distance quite right and fell a bit short. I guys marketing display guys aren’t often civil engineers. Thus, the ‘S’ had to be left off. I guess we get point though, right?
This New England Pepsi marketing rep might be on New England Patriot
s, but the national media is not.
Six out of eight ESPNers picked the Giants outright. All five CBS NFL experts also took the Giants to win. Peter Schrager at Fox Sports like the Giants. And 15 out of 23 celebs polled by Scripts Howard, and pulled out by the WWL, like New York.
Maybe the masses like New York, but I think the quality pickers have the Patriots.
ADAM WEST, actor, “Batman”: New England, 21-17. It will be close and wrenching. Brady is on a record-breaking super roll. If his offensive line can
keep up (its) great protection abilities, we know somebody’s pattern and luck downfield could pile up points.
Batman. Fucking Batman picking games. That should count for two picks for New England.
ROBIN MEADE, singer/HLN host: New England, because of probability and the fact that (Patriots wide receiver) Chad Ochocinco tweeted that he has made
the locker room listen to my debut album in the recent past! Personally, I think that’s why they are doing so well. Heee.
Wait, Robin Meade is a singer? This actually makes sense.
And, by the way, all the hot TV “news” personality are on the Pats.
ERIN BURNETT, CNN TV host: New England, 20-14. I grew up in rural Maryland so I’m not a homegrown fan of either team. But I love watching football and
hate when the season ends. I will be rooting for the Patriots because last time around they lost to the Giants. It’s their turn!
BARRY WILLIAMS, Greg Brady on “The Brady Bunch”: New England, 31-17. As the seventh and youngest Brady, Tom is a classic and a winner.
OK, that one contains some bias. And, yea, it’s just outright cliche.
So, on the whole, I thought the Patriots were getting the better of the karma picks. Then this happened:
RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC TV host: New England, 31-27. Because the Lesser Manning is lesser. Adorable, and with such tiny hands! But lesser.
Can I change my pick?
