>Superbowl XLV; Princess Picks The Packers Over The Steelers

>Princess the Camel has spoken, with her last prediction for the season, Princess has chosen the Green Bay Packers to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Superbowl XLV this coming Sunday.

What’s the reasoning behind Princesses prediction? It seems to have more to do with personal feels towards Green Bay’s linebacker Clay Matthews and what he said about Michael Vick than it does with how she expects the game to be played by the Steelers.

Princess stated, “..The Packers are my team. The quarterback Rogers is on fire right now and I think he might light the Steelers up. And that Packers linebacker – Clay Matthews … I like that guy. A couple of weeks ago before the game with Philadelphia he said he had 3 dogs and couldn’t wait to play Philadelphia and tackle that quarterback ……. and he did just that. He’s my kind of guy!!…”


I don’t know if I agree with Princess on this one. I think it will be a great game but I’m leaning towards the Steelers.
After being on fire for the last 5 or 6 games of the season, Packers’s quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a so-so game against the Bears in the NFC Championship game and now with two week layoff between games I’m not so sure that he will be as sharp in this game.
The Steelers on the other hand are consistent and have been there before. Say what you will about Ben Roethlisberger and his character flaws, he’s tough. All the guy has done is win in the NFL and with two previous Superbowl titles under his belt, he know what it takes to play in the game and come out victorious.
My prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers 27 Green Bay Packers 24
And by the way… if you’d like to support Princess for all her prognosticating over the past number of seasons and into the future, you can sponsor her in the Wildlife Club, she’ll appreciate it!

>Princess The Camel Picks Steelers Over Jets in Todays AFC Championship Game

>Well folks, its been a while since I posted about Princess, the prognosticating camel of Popcorn Park Zoo, in Lacy Township.

Her current record for picking winners this season stands at an impressive 11W – 9L. So far this season Princess has a predicted the outcome of 10 Jets games and has accumulated a mediocre 5-5 record thus far. In the last 3 game against the Steelers (regular season), Colts and Patriots (playoffs), Princess has chosen against the Jets and lost.

For todays playoff game that determines who will play in the Superbowl on Sunday February 6th, Princess has once again picked against the Jets, preferring the Steeler’s “Steel Curtain” and it’s quarterback Ben Roethlisberger against the high flying Jets and Marc Sanchez.

When asked by her handler John, why she has chosen against the Jets again this week, seemingly out of disrespect for the Jets coach Rex Ryan, Princess had this to say:

“…John, Rex Ryan inconspicuous? He’s is about as inconspicuous as a turd in a punchbowl. You wait … he’ll be putting his “Foot” in his mouth before Sundays game.

Really John, I give the Jets a lot of credit, but I don’t think the they’re are going to intimidate the Steelers Quarterback like they did Brady. And big Ben should get the Steelers in position to win late in the game….”


Will Princess’s pick this week turn out to be right? If so, than it means that the Jets will be heading home empty handed, for the second straight year after making it to AFC Championship game.

For Jets fans sake I hope she is wrong. After all the local hype over the Jets, if they loose, I think there will be many fans ready to jump off the nearest bridge.

For me personally, if the Jets todays game game against the Steelers, it just keeps me from being bored and disinterested over the next few weeks until pitcher and catchers report for spring train.

So today I’m a J-E-T-S , Jets, Jets, Jets fan. Lets go Gang Green !
