Well, here's my one chance to delve into the world of sports prognostication. Ask Wacky Neighbor about how good I am at this. He's made about $100 off me over the past few years with my annual exercise in doomed hope, aka The Washington Redskins.
So, Superbowl XLI. Colts vs Bears. On one hand you have a monster experienced QB in Peyton Manning. But he hasn't been to the Superbowl and he's got pressure to succeed. He has an excellent RB and WR set. And the Colts Defense is much improved.
Against this you have Da Bears. Rough and tumble defense, fair offense. QB with a spotty record, who also hasn't ever played in a Superbowl. But they're Da Bears.
My heart says Chicago, but my head says Indy by 17.
