Any questions ?
OK. I'll bring the wings, pizza and beer. And, I think it's a great idea that we all wear Spandex outfits in the colors of the team we are rooting for. Gosh, this is gonna' be fun. Maybe at the end of the game we can all trade our Spandex jerseys with one another--kind of like they do in soccer.

I actually have an authentic jersey with an old-style design (bought before those became "throwbacks"). It's held up very well since I save it only for occasions like today. It's number 14 - Steve Grogan.

Um...um...the spandex refers to the eye candy for us chickies watching the game. All those muscles...

Youse guys watch the cheerleaders during the once-in-a-while camera shots. I got the spandex covered during the entire game.

Come on over with that beer.

The question asked for a prediction.

I predict 90% of all the players on the field today will be broke in 10 years.

I'd predict that Mr Brady won't be among that group.

Sorry, I misunderstood. Guess I didn't pick up on the subtext all that well. Maybe sleeping in the Spandex outfit last night was another mistake. Do you know if Bloomingdale's will let me return the outfit without a receipt?
(and a few barely visible stains)?

+1 His wife makes a lot.

I can see him becoming a great offensive coordinator and eventually head coach later if he desires.

Oh, a prediction:

Patriots to win in regulation or in over-time.

I don't like either team and don't like either coach.

Why the Seattle SEAHAWKS are going to win. They have us "the 12th man" behind them all the way to the win!

Wilson will be having nightmares over that last play at the goal line for the rest of his life.
