Editor's Note--Well, those Championship Games went a little bit opposite than expected. This is no deterrent to BigDick. Oh no. After the fancy season he has posted, yet again in this NFL season? Oh no. Well, it's the big game for all to enjoy. Many wanted to see this matchup from even before the season started. And now we are nearly here. Pretty evenly matched teams we would say. But all I know is a few things. 1) I will be in the Atlantic City, NJ area for this on Saturday, Super Bowl Eve:
Looking for the top prize of course. Big D will be on hand as will other glitterati. Then we will be heading to the NYC tri-state area to watch the game in "parts unknown" on Sunday. "Parts unknown" because it's an A-list invite only bash, and if you don't know about it now, you ain't invited. Then Monday on "Apres Super Bowl" (that's french for AFTER Super Bowl), we will be taking our traveling party to the isle of Manhattan. Yes. We are going to treat this Monday, as it should be. A national holiday with PLENTY of Franklin's in our pockets. Just like the founding fathers wanted. Feel free to come along. Other things we know: 2) This will be fun. 3) It's time for Big Dick's final football pick of the illustrious 2014-15 season. Take it away Big Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee--R.B.
Yes, Richie we all look forward to your return to the Atlantic City/New York City area this looooooooong weekend. Best of luck in the horsie tournament. Now to the other sports stuff.
Analysis paralysis. Media Day. Deflategate. Strange interviews. This is all part of the hoopla for the 2 weeks leading up to ANY Super Bowl. Well. maybe not Deflategate, but you know what I mean. These teams are prettty evenly matched, BUT they aren't the SAME kind of team.
The defending champs are in for a big challenge with Tommy Brady and the boys. Haven't probably seen an offense like this all year. But more on that a second......
One of our most precious things to do on Super Bowl Sunday? Pick an NBA game or two! Well, we bet the schedule makers in the NBA didn't expect their "showcase game" before the Super Bowl to be a crappy Lakers team (without Kobe now, versus an even crappier New York Knick team. Did they? We're not sure who is going to win here, but more importantly who is going to score?? UNDER in the desolate Madison Square Garden where everyone will be taking a nap before the football starts. Doesn't matter what the total is either. UNDER pal. Now back to the football.
These Pats have lost a couple of these Super Bowl games to what kind of team? A team with a very good defense, a good QB (at that time), and a great running game. That was, of course, the New York Football Giants. Twice. Can you describe SEATTLE'S team as such? You bet your sweet bippy you can.
This is the field the Pats lost to the Giants to ruin their perfect season. They have NOT won a Super Bowl in 10 years, but they have come close. This deflate-gate has to be a distraction, and Big D will promise you this: Tom Brady and RUSSELL WILSON are going to be throwing medicine balls out there, friend. Like big ol' balloon type rocks. You think that helps New England or the SEAHAGS, handsome?
The money apparently is going on the Patsies at a rate of 60-40. Not sure why. Look for the defense of SEATTLE to show up, and we have made a BIG deal about New England being weak on the road for the last few seasons. Couple that with a 1-9 spread record the last 10 on grass, (Seahags are 9-3 on grass lately), a 4-11 spread record in the last 15 playoff games, (Seahags 5-2 their last 7), and you give us a point with SEATTLE in the biggest game of them all?!? Underdogs? Really?
We get to say it one more time with gusto: TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE baby. SEATTLE wins this game. They're better.
Now we hope to see you all in Atlantic City on Saturday, or New York City on Monday. Or both.
The final happy recap? SEATTLE +1 vs the Patriots. End of story. Oh and the UNDER in the Lakers vs Knicks during pre-game.
Speaking of stories, this fella told soooooo many in his tunes. Here's a classic for your Super Bowl weekend. No lip syncing here, baby. Good luck. God bless. And of course, Goooooooooooo.
