This spring DaBearsBlog is going to be launching a weekly, half-hour podcast. It will feature a short interview with a local beat writer, my brothers and I picking games, the Reverend's Rant and it will also provide a chance for some of our readers (you) to literally have your voice heard.
The Super Bowl Selection Show
Apologies for the technical issues, boys and girls.
There's no fair way to select who gets to appear on the first podcast so I've created a little Super Bowl prediction game. Winner will be my first guest when the program debuts around the start of April.
1 pt - Who will be the game's leading receiver?
2 pts - How many incomplete passes will Drew Brees throw? (You get both points if you nail it. 1 point if you're within two)
3 pts - Total points for the Colts at the end of the first quarter.
4 pts - Total points for the Saints at the end of the half.
5 pts - Total points for both teams at the end of the third quarter.
6 pts - Total points for both teams at the end of the game.
Tiebreaker: Total number of times 'Katrina' and 'Haiti' are mentioned during the telecast.

I think the Saints are chasing a big number late and score to make the outcome look less lopsided than it actually was. Colts 38, Saints 24
