"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Super Bowl Prediction Time

Been watching the NFL network off and on this week trying to decide who to root for in the Super Bowl as neither team is high on the list of favorites. 

Sam Bradford and the Rams stand #1 in this family.  His selection as the official NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year was the perfect ending for Sooner fans who have now become Rams fans.  Our family especially my son has been a Rams fan since he was 2 1/2 sitting in front of the TV in Southern California on his stool with his Rams jersey on rooting for the Rams.  Now with our favorite Sooner Sam Bradford being chosen as the first pick and leading the Rams on an amazing turnaround, a lot of the State of Oklahoma has joined the Rams family.  In fact, our local sports radio station here in Norman carries all the Rams games.  Even our TV Fox affiliate carries the Rams now as the backup to Dallas.  Most people I know would rather have the Rams than Cowboys now.  Jerry Jones is rapidly losing the Sooner State.

Our first criteria has always been for the playoffs and Super Bowl to pick the team who has the most University of Oklahoma Sooners.  Last year it was New Orleans.  This year there are no Sooners on either team so was sitting here trying to determine who to choose since the second criteria is being from a Red State.  Both Green Bay and Pittsburgh were part of Blue State America in 2008 with the owner of Pittsburgh a big Obama fan even though his brother was elected to Congress as a Republican in 2010 -- must be some interesting times at family gatherings.  In 2010 both states joined the rest of us in Red State America by electing Republican Senators and in Wisconsin electing a Republican Governor and Republican controlled Legislature, but then so did Pennsylvania.  Our final decision was based on what state was the most shocking to go fully Republican and that honor belongs to Wisconsin because Senator Johnson beating Feingold was the icing on the cake of a great night in November.

May not be the most scientific way to choose a Super Bowl team but we will see if plays out!

Our pick for the winner of the Super Bowl is now Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers.   Go PAC!

Enjoy the Super Bowl coming from Jerry's World!
