It promises to be a tight game. Two defensive powers come face to face when the Green Bay Packers meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. Both franchises have been to the big game before; both have hoisted the Vince Lombardi trophy.
This year the Steelers bring experience to the game. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has twice led his team to Super Bowl wins. The Packers bring grit and determination. Green Bay has rallied behind quarterback Aaron Rodgers with impressive playoff victories.
At press time the oddsmakers have the spread at 2 1/2 points. It’s a game that’s just too close to call. So, who better to consult than a man who is used to handling pressure situations, and who is unafraid to make the tough calls.
He’s worked with Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, and Paris Hilton. Picking the Super Bowl champ should be a snap for PopEater’s Rob Shuter. We asked the popular columnist to share his game day plans and prediction.
2011 Super Bowl: Green Bay Packers vs Pittsburgh Steelers
Who will win and why?
Pittsburgh Steelers because I like that the name of the city is in the name. Makes it easy to remember where they are from. Plus I like Pittsburgh. One river meets another river and forms a massive river!
Favorite Super Bowl and/or football memory?
I’m from the UK so it’s still very new to me. I like when fans paint their faces and stand outside shirtless in the freezing cold. I liked when Whitney sang the national anthem. That girl can really sing.
Where and with whom will you watch the game?
None of my friends will watch with me cause I ask too many questions about what is going on. Rules of the game confuse me so I’ll probably be alone on the sofa texting and tweeting stupid questions. I once watched an entire game and didn’t realize a team had won. I like cricket.
Favorite Super Bowl snack food and libation?
Don’t need to be watching a game to enjoy beer and chips!
Late breaking news: Looks like Rob will have to move the sofa to Cowboys Stadium. A recent tweet confirms that the gossip columnist will be reporting from the game on Sunday:
I’m going to Super Bowl with HDNet and Direct TV!!! Will bring you the best buzz…what teams are playing again?
