When it comes to a lunchbox, it's carried. The food that you put in the lunch box may have an outer wrapping, a baggie, so there isn't direct exposure.

To close out this year's picks, I will not only be picking the winner of the game, but prognosticating on other matters as well.
  • Despite nearly 100 players seeing the field, the announcing squad will spend at least 80% of their time talking about Brian Urlacher, Rex Grossman, and Peyton Manning.
  • Prince will act like a wierdo during the halftime show
  • Devin Hester, who everyone says is the X-factor of this game, will do nothing notable.
  • The announcers will at least once state "there has been so much talk about (fill in topic here)" without acknowledging that they are part of the media machine that has been solely responsible for that talk.
  • If there are any emerald nuts commercials, they will be funny
  • No matter how good, mediocre, or horrible Rex Grossman plays, the announcers will mention "inconsistency" or "stepping up" in every statement made about him
  • "Thumb" will be the most often-mentioned body part
  • All Chicagoland will be in a deep depression tomorrow, because
  • The Colts will win the game
Yes, I know that's a lot of broadcast team related slams, so I will at least say thank goodness we don't have to deal with the Buck/Aikman or Michaels/Madden teams this year. Congratulations, Phil Simms and Jim Nantz, you're the least horrific of three evils.

Thanks for your patience, you can now expect me to go back to periodic content-related posting now.
