Prediction 1 Phil Simms, Jim Nantz or both will exaggerate how many people are watching.
Odds Super Bowl XLI Commentators Phil Simms and Jim Nantz Will Exaggerate The Ratings: 3:1The fact that most countries don't have running water, let alone reliable Nielson ratings, enables network executives to pretend that everyone in Darfur is watching the game on a high-def plasma screen on wheels instead of completing their 14-day trek to a UN refugee camp. Much like the idea of the Texans ever winning a Super Bowl, it theoretically could be true, but that doesn't make it any less stupid to say out loud.
Prediction 2 Jim Nantz or Phil Simms will make a huge deal about the fighter jet flyover during the national anthem.
Odds Jim Nantz Will Do It in XLI: 5:1Football commentators love to use military terminology and compare football to all-out warfare. And what better place to start than by describing actual fighter jets?
