The Superbowl is this weekend and I can’t wait for my beloved Seahawks to take their place as one of the greatest defenses of all time. Here are 10 fearless predictions for the game.

  1. I’ll eat at least one too many deviled eggs. I love deviled eggs. They don’t show up in everyday life very often. So, when they’re around, I partake. “Damn, these eggs are good.”
  2. I’ll miss one critical play while explaining to my wife what happened in the previous play. “But I’m glad you’re here honey.”
  3. I will high five a stranger next to me. If you’re wearing Seahawks colors, you are my friend for the day.
  4. I’ll miss one play, while I run to the bathroom before a TV time out. Stupid old-man bladder.
  5. I’ll eat way too much chili. There’s always chili at a Superbowl party. And after passing it up the last three times I got another deviled egg, I can’t resist. “Damn, this chili is good.”
  6. At least one person will “sshh” me because they can’t hear a commercial. If you’re here “just to see the commercials,” F&%* off. I’m here to root for my favorite team with my new best friend, “What’s your name?”
  7. I won’t recognize at least one musical act. But it’s way better than the old days of “A Tribute to Winter” and the 200 dancers in snowman costumes marching across the field in a figure 8 formation.
  8. My kid won’t recognize at least one musical act. I have failed as a parent when I have to explain who the Red Hot Chili Peppers are and why they’re awesome.
  9. I will hug a stranger next to me. “What a great play! I love you man!”
  10. Despite being beyond full, I will eat the remaining deviled egg. It’s just sitting there all by itself. I might explode, but damn those eggs are good.

Go Hawks!
