Toronto Mayor Rob Ford offered some crack sports analysis and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie weighed in with a similar opinion. Both predict the Denver Broncos will beat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday.
Christie thinks Peyton Manning will lead his team to victory in a close game, Denver by three points. Ford expects the Broncos to win by more than two touchdowns.These prognostications won’t bring traffic to a screeching halt, though Christie could probably arrange that. Super Bowl Sunday is taking place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Having these two go for Denver is one of the most encouraging things I’ve heard leading up to the game. If nothing else, tea party voters in Washington might want to remember Christie’s pick if he shows up on the GOP presidential ballot in 2016.
