My Prediction?

If I was betting on this game, I'd definitely be taking the Saints. I think they're a good play with the points as well as the moneyline. You'd have a hard time finding a better team as an underdog. Indy definitely has the experience advantage, and they have that Manning guy too, but who doesn't like rooting for the underdog?

Saints 31, Colts 27.

So I parlayed seven hours of my life on Sunday into a free entry into a $215 SCOOP event on PokerStars by wading my way through 2,000 or so bloggers in the WBCOOP Main Event. Wish I could say it was due to brilliant play, huge bluffs, and hero calls...but it was pretty ABC-ish. My big hands held up, I won a couple of big flips, and that was about it. Never had more than 75,000 chips towards the end, and went out in flames when my 8BB shove with A-Q found both T-T and A-K waiting for me, in the blinds no less...but no complaints here.

And by the way, whenever I hear SCOOOOOP, it reminds me of the announcer at Hartford Jai Alai when someone would make a nice catch of a short-hop. Many nights spent at the old fronton...I miss watching jai alai (and playing it on the amateur courts in Milford), but the CT casinos stole all the gamboolers away.
