>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.
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!!…”
It’s the day after and all I can say is that nothing new has happened with the Jets, they are still the same old , snake bitting team they have always been. For the second time in as many seasons they lost in AFC Championship Game, the last hurdle to the Superbowl.
>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….”
>Who will it be in this weekends AFC Championship Game? Will the Jets turn on their afterburners and soar towards Dallas and the Super Bowl or will the Steelers drape their famed curtain over the Jets before they have a chance to get on the runway?
The guys from CBS Sports give us their insight and predictions of the game.
As for me, I hope the Jets pull it out but I believe the Steelers will win. Final score 24-17
For all of you sun birds out there that just can’t wait for this winter to be over, I have some bad news. Punsutawney Phil, that prognosticating groundhog from Gobbler’s Knob has seen his shadow this morning, which means six more weeks of winter. Lets hope he is wrong!
On Gobbler’s Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009
Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators
Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper
And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths
After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,
Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time
And a bright sky above me
Showed my shadow beside me.
So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.
