Giants v. Jets for Princess – Week 16

It’s Christmas Eve and week 16 of the NFL season is upon us, with all the holiday happenings swirling around the past few day, I lost track of the days. I thought I had an extra day to get ready for the big NY showdown between the Giants and the Jets today. Luckily Princess the Camel didn’t.

Both the Giants and the Jets are playng for their playoff lives today. If the Giants lose to the Jets today they’re done and might as well go home and spend New Years Day with their families instead of with the Cowboys in MetLife Stadium. If the Jets lose to the Giants, mathematically they’re not finished, they still have a chance of making the playoffs with a lot of help from others, which is unlikely.

So who does Princess like today? Well she is sticking with her favorite and picking the Giants over the Jets today.

“…This is a tough one, anything can happen. It’s almost like one of them is going to win by accident. I know Rex is going to have his defense psyched for the game but somehow I think the Giants defense is going to be better and if Eli can get his game together the Giants should win!…”

Well, we’ll see. Princess (and I) thought that last week the Giants were going to prevail against the Redskins and we know how that turned out.

For those keeping track, Princess’s pick record stands at 9(W) – 6(L) thus far this year.

Princess the Camel Picked Super Bowl XLIII Winning Steelers

Princess the Camel did it again.  The prognosticator of Popcorn Park Zoo, in choosing the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Arizona Cardinals, successfully picked the winner of Super Bowl XLIII.

In a game that went down to the wire and almost foiled Princess’s prediction, the Steelers came from behind with about 2:38 left to play in the game,to defeat the Cardinal (and me) 27-23. 
Princess’s record for picking the winner of NFL games this year finishes at a very impressive 17-5.
My record of picking winners on the other hand was not so good, out of the 11 games that made up this years NFL playoffs, my record was a dismal 3-8. 
The only pleasure that I receive from the outcome of this game, is in knowing that while the Cardinals did not emerge as winners of  Super Bowl XLIII, they did cover the point spread and as a result, I am now a few bucks richer than I was a few hours ago.
So lets hear it for the Pittsburgh Steelers, winners of their sixth Super Bowl title, the most out of any other team in the NFL.
It was a great NFL season, I already can’t wait until the start of next season in order root for the Giants return to the big game.
