Super Coincidence?

Last season, I felt like the outcome of Super Bowl Sunday was predetermined for the Saints.  The signs didn’t reveal themselves to me until halftime of the game.

This year, the favorite is the Packers.  Most expert analysts (i.e Don BanksAdam Schefter) are picking the Packers.  However, one has to be careful about favorites.  Vegas loves it when the  majority of bettors are leaning in one direction.  Mind you, the house always wins just by the spread alone.

There’s one thing that truly bothers me about this year’s Super Bowl.  I know this sounds silly, but it worries me that the Lombardi play is on Broadway at the same time the Packers are in the Super Bowl.  In addition, the NFL Network has been airing pep talk clips portrayed by the same actor Dan Lauria, who plays Vince Lombardi on Broadway.  The fact that the NFL has chosen to feature the legendary Green Bay Packers coach in multiple clips throughout the 2010 playoffs , gives me the uncomfortable feeling that the outcome has all been predetermined.

I’m telling you that Broadway show bugs me.  A Packers victory sure could help ticket sales.  The show wasn’t on last season at this time, but the show just happens to open the same season the Packers make the Super Bowl.   Super coincidence?

It also doesn’t help that one of the most popular hip-hop artists Lil Wayne just released a remix of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow“called “Green and Yellow“, which is a rooting song for the Packers to win this year’s Super Bowl.  Khalifa’s video features the Steelers’ terrible towel, but the songs’ lyrics are not specific to football, whereas Lil Wayne’s lyrics are all about the Packers.  It’s almost like Lil Wayne knows a little somethin-somethin, so he released his track in a most timely manner.

Truth be known, I’m a Steelers fan, so I have a vested interest in the game.   I sure hope that I’m misreading all of these popular culture omens that are leaning towards a Packers victory.   Go Steelers!  Like Wiz Khalifa says…

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

    Only 1 Problem if The Packers Win. Then it was automatically fixed that kinda unfair lol

  2. Of course, a Packers’ fan would respond. 🙂 It’s nothing against your team. I’m saying that pro sports is fixed in general. Although, it is sad that y’all Packers fans had to steal our song to try and make it your own.
