And Another Thing

Associated Press
New Orleans Saints fans celebrate on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter after the Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Prez pickin' Saints

This just in: The President of the United States has weighed in on the Super Bowl, and he's picking ... New Orleans.

Mostly, Barack Obama says, for sentimental reasons.

I'm down with that. I said on the Blob yesterday, it's simply a better storyline if the Saints win, because they're kind of the ultimate underdog. My head, however, still says Colts by double digits.

I'll say this, though: I like it that we have a president who actually picks someone in these matters. Not like the standard politician's waffle -- which reached its apex when Hillary Clinton, a lifelong Cubs fan, pronounced herself a Yankees fan when she was running for the Senate in New York.

Yeah, right.
