I thought this was going to be an easy pick for me. Hands down, I thought I would just pick Florida without even having to review any facts, figures, or muddle things up with all those silly sports stats.
I mean, I live in Florida and I’ve already mentioned that Gator fans are truly insane. They redefine fanatical.
I’d be scared to live in this state and admit that I’m not rooting for them (unless I was cheering for Florida State University because other Seminole fans would totally have my back).
Plus, they are playing the Oklahoma Sooners and that name just irks the crap out of me. Sooner than what?
But then someone pointed out a little fact that made me have to stop and consult the Stiletto Sports Official Rulebook for Team Selection (aka “picks”).
Florida is playing the Oklahoma Sooners. And who is their QB? None other than my December pick for Man of Style, 2008’s Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford. So not good. How do I choose now?
