Well, we are a broadcast bunch after all.  So, we decided (well, actually I decided) to get some input from our crack staff about how they think the big game in Indianapolis will shake out.  I asked who they thought would win, the final score and the Most Valuable Player of the game.  I also gave everyone an opportunity to do a “side bet”.  PS…due to stringent and very important gambling rules, they will receive NOTHING in compensation should they win the side bets.  And so, here we go with our Super Bowl XLVI picks.

David Settle (Operations Manager and Sports Director)

And so, the consensus is a relatively close win for the Patriots.  As an aside, we did ask the traffic and production departments for their feelings on the game.  Neither lady decided I was serious.  And I guess I really am not, but hey, it’s the Super Bowl…an American celebration.  So, I get to do what I want.  Best of Luck to New York and New England.  Can’t wait for the game!
