It's my most favorite time of year - Superbowl time!! It could only be better if my beloved Denver Broncos were one of the teams playing, sadly they aren't, but I do enjoy and watch the Superbowl each year religiously nonetheless.
I'm not really a Packers or Steelers fan. I have nothing against either team, but they just aren't in my top 5. Packers may have a slight advantage in my book as I did have Aaron Rodgers as my Fantasy Football QB last year (not this year - thanks Kim - hmph) and ended up winning 1st place.
After much research and reading, I have determined that I will go with the Steelers. Don't get me wrong, I will be rooting for Green Bay just to make it fun as I'm fairly certain most of the people I am celebrating with are rooting for the Steelers, but my actual prediction is Steelers.
How did I come to this realization you ask? Well, because EA Sports told me so. Every year EA Sports uses Madden to conduct a simulation of the game. You're probably thinking that's a really lame way to pick who is going to win Elizabeth..... well, what if you heard that the Madden game has predicted correctly 6 of the last 7 winners? Not only that, but they have been close in scores on several occasions including the Steelers victories in 2006 and 2009. Still don't believe me?

Tim and I will be spending the Superbowl at a friends house in Lake Elsinore. I'm hoping there are games, I love games. I did get in on a game through work, but the numbers I ended up with are 7 (Steelers) and 5 (Packers). 5 is a pretty difficult number to get. Here's hoping for a weird safety or two though! It was $10 a square so over the coarse of the game it's $1000 payout which ain't too shabby. Fingers crossed!
Note - a 5 has has been the last number in the final score of a Superbowl competitor only 4 times since 1967. Hmph.
