Despite there being only 4 participants left with a chance to win the pool, everyone is encouraged to make your final pick for posterity. I would also encourage a score prediction. If anyone hits that bang on I will have to check with the trophy minting department, but believe we could conjure up something to reward such phenomenal genius.
The participants of course:
San Francisco and Kansas City
Sunday, February 11th at 5:30 CST in Vegas
At the time of starting this thread it is still uncertain as to whether the 4 left in contention (@bobo82@KingCrimson769@tony and myself) will be publicly posting their picks or sending them to @mahalcflers to eventually post in order to keep as much competetive integrity as possible. I’m leaning that way and have already sent Mahal my pick and score prediction. He did say he figures I’ve pretty much got it in the bag and mentioned that it was similar to looking in the case in Pulp Fiction and being the first person to actually see what was inside.
My Superbowl XXLIVIIXCCIV predictions? Well let’s see now:
Chiefs will win the coin toss after one of the 49er’s foolishly lose it in a nearby Las Vegas slot machine (one of many conveniently located throughout Mercedes Benz Stadium).
At the half it’ll be17 and 3
Perhaps more importantly to viewers under the age of 10, at halftime Taylor Swift will make her presence known by showing up on the Stadium Jumbo Tron to answer Travis Kelce’s marriage proposal with a resounding ‘YES’, causing pure football fans all over the world to smash their TV screens and swear off NFL football forever.
Next, the official CFL website will crash as millions of former NFL fans ALL TRY AT THE SAME TIME to defect to 3 down football and overwhelm our poor outdated server (which is set up in Commissioner Randy Ambrosie’s office behind the Ketchup dispenser). Heroic CFL techs will scramble to avert another CFL embarrassment… aw who am I kidding. There’s only ONE CFL tech and he’s working part time in an Amazon fulfilment center as a rat catcher.
So suddenly it’ll be up to @GrideronGirl to come out of retirement to fix everything… but since the Super Bowl plays out on her ‘hair day’ the task will fall to @Jon to find a way to unhide the CFL Forums link in time to kick ass and take names. Or something like that. We’ll find out later if Jon succeeds or accepts a $10,000,000.00 bribe from The Rock to throw us under the bus and let disgruntled NFL fans default to that crappy 4 down spring football league of his.
Later we’ll thank our lucky stars that money means nothing to Jon (otherwise I’d have won this pool). He’ll save us for sure or my name isn’t Spaghetti.
Anyway, with less than two minutes left in the game will be be one score down and driving with no time outs remaining. Andy Reid will be led away in handcuffs for stealing fries from Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce’s lawyers will be racing to get around Taylor Swift’s iron clad prenuptial agreement. Only the players on the field will be focused on what’s truly important… next year’s contract negotiations.
