Super Bowl Bets?

Well, Super Bowl Extra Large (Oh, the XL is Roman numerals for 40! Gee, you'd think that a guy with Roman numbers in his name would know that...) is just a little less than two weeks away. And I could almost care less. After all, my beloved Buffalo Bills were knocked out somewhere around the fifth week of the regular season.

But longstanding family tradition is, if the Bills aren't in the Super Bowl, then we have to root for the team representing the AFC. Since this year, it's not the Patriots, I can do that. In fact there are a lot of Steeler fans (mostly real old-timers who got hooked 40 or 50 years ago before the Bills formed) in my area. After all, our greatest QB (Jim Kelly) came from the Pittsburgh area, so we owe them some graditude at least.

So, since I'm backing the AFC for the Super Bowl, are there any NFC supporters out there?

And is anyone willing to wager on it? I'm willing to put some of Buffalo's finest cullinary creations: (All right, maybe not the finest. After all, chicken wings, the world's greatest pizza, and Ted's hot dogs don't travel that well through the mail.) A bag of Gourmet Sponge Candy, a bottle of Buffalo Tom's Hot Sauce, and a bottle of Weber's Mustard - against whatever you're town has to offer.

Now I can't be doing this for a lot of people, (I'm rooting for the Steelers, I don't necessariyl think they can walk all over Seatle) so it's first come first served.

So if any of you want to back those nancy-boys from Seatle, let me know if any of you want to put your food where your mouth is!

My Packers where knocked out around week 6. I also have the tradition of backing the NFC team, and this year I think Seatle will win. I'm not a gambling man, other ways I would take you up on it, plus all the cultural stuff we have in my town won't ship well at all.

You might have to throw in the point spread to get someone to bite. Pitt is currently favored by 4.

Or maybe they are all chickens. I know there's no way I'd bet against the AFC.
