INDIANAPOLIS 29, CHICAGO 17
Well, there goes my perfect Reckless Prediction record. Blew it
straight up and against the spread. Peyton Manning basically picked the
defense apart; the D expected the big play and they went mid-range,
beyond the linebackers but way ahead of the secondary. Rex Grossman is
the antithesis of clutch.
PROPS AND DROPS:
PROPS to Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning and the entire Colts team. Props
to Thomas Jones, Devin Hester and Brian Urlacher.
DROPS to Rex Grossman and the Chicago defensive coordinator (you gave
them too much).
Television crew put together a pretty vanilla broadcast as opposed to
the bump-up in graphic quality that I've grown accustomed to over the
past few years. However, the coverage went off without a hitch.
Commercials were somewhat better than those of the past few years. Bud
Light's commercials were by far the worst... again. Career Builder
disappointed. I was surprised at Coke's heavy involvement coupled
largely with Pepsi's near absence save a few ads in the first quarter.
National anthem: Billy Joel performed one of the best renditions of the
anthem I've heard in a while.
Halftime show: Yes! They brought back the marching band! I've got to
say that Prince's guitar play was definitely impressive and I'm amazed
they were able to pull all that off with the heavy rains and

OFFICIAL SUPER BOWL XLI WEB SITE:
Fresh over the "New England Hump," the Colts are making their first
Super Bowl appearance since the team resided in Baltimore. The
offensive talent is well documented, with QB Peyton Manning and WRs
Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne leading the way. The defense is led
primarily by DE Dwight Freeney and its specialty is pass defense. Coach
Tony Dungy is in his first Super Bowl appearance after several playoff
appearances with both Indianapolis and Tampa Bay.
The Colts' record in the Super Bowl is 1-1, losing Super Bowl III but
winning Super Bowl V, both while the team resided in Baltimore.
Da Bears are back. The vaunted Bears defense has returned to form, led
by LB Brian Urlacher. Its offense is somewhat erratic but has explosive
potential led by QB Rex Grossman and RB Thomas Jones. Coach Lovie Smith
is in his first Super Bowl appearance.
The Bears' record in the Super Bowl is 1-0, winning Super Bowl XX.
Performer of hits such as "Little Red Corvette," "Raspberry Beret," and
"Party Like it's 1999," Prince will perform during halftime.
Indianapolis -7 (49). Money line: IND -250/CHI +215 (or IND -140/CHI
+110, depending on sportsbook)
Chicago is just too good this year. To be quite frank I have no idea
why the Colts have such a high handicap. Bears 21, Colts 17.
Super Bowl Reckless Prediction record: 2-0 straight and against the
