First and foremost, for those of you who remember Puppy Bowl II last year, make sure you check out Puppy Bowl III. It'll be playing and replaying* from now until 1 am mountain time early tomorrow morning, giving you plenty of chances to catch the compelling action. Don't miss it!
Actually, after watching the pre-game...thing, I might just go ahead and stick with the puppies.
But anyway, in honor of the most celebrated day in the sports calendar, I ask you to put on your thinking caps for a just a moment and explain this one to me. I present for your consideration two teams not playing in Super Bowl XLI - the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills.
My problem is this: the franchise names simply don't make any sense. I suppose it could just be me, but seriously, doesn't Washington have more to do with Bills than Redskins? And doesn't "Buffalo" associate pretty well with "Redskins"? Honestly, I can't think of any good reasons why they can't switch.
Because it just makes more sense.
My fearless Super Bowl predictions: Colts 31, Bears 17.**
*And replaying and replaying and replaying.
**Fearless because the score currently sits Bears 14, Colts 6.
