When Buffalo Chicken has become it’s own food group, brownies and deviled eggs are football-shaped and the chip-n-dip has morphed into a Football Stadium, it can only mean that Super Bowl Sunday has arrived.
The Super Bowl is such a Super Feast in fact, the USDA classifies Super Bowl Sunday as second only to Thanksgiving for annual food consumption in the United States. So it only seems logical that food lovers should have an extra advantage when it comes to predicting the outcome of the big game. Doesn’t it?
This has been my first attempt using my stomach to make Super Bowl and Playoff predictions and so far, I’m proud of the results. I was 2-4 in my Divisional Playoffs Picks and an astonishing 2-2 in my Conference Championship Picks. I am convinced that I never would have done so well had I considered football statistics or actual knowledge of the game, instead of my trusty stomach.
But using gastroathletic tactics is really nothing new. YouTube celebrity, Chef John Mitzewich of Foodwishes is in his second recorded year of Super Bowl predictions. I say recorded because there are claims that Mitzewich has actually been using his famed, fail-proof Chicken Wing Bone Toss technique for 19 years… and he’s never been wrong.
As you’ll see in our videos, Chef John and I have made different predictions for the outcome of New England Patriots vs. New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Only time will tell if my stomach is any match for his chicken bones.
What is YOUR prediction for the Super Bowl XLVI?
