The Super match-up

Super Bowl XLIV
I don't normally associate my piety with the NFL, but I'm seriously considering lighting a few prayer candles for what I would consider the Super Bowl matchup of the decade.

Vikings, Colts. What a game that would be! Can you imagine seeing Brett Favre lead one offense, and Peyton Manning lead the other? What about seeing Austin Collie catch his first Super Bowl TD pass, and then watching Fahu Tahi rush for a Viking TD?

And did I mention THE WHO is playing at half time?!

This could be the best Super Bowl in my lifetime, and I'm giddy with excitement. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, I'm sending e-prayers to various Internet ministers, I'm working on a voo-doo doll that looks like Rex Ryan, I'm doing everything I can to make my dream match-up a reality.

Colts and Vikings in SuperBowl XLIV. It couldn't possibly get any better than that.

I think Jets Vikings would be the ultimate matchup. You have:

1) huge underdog
2) A great "eff you" matchup of Favre vs. the Jets
3) two tortured fan bases, one of which will experience the long awaited euphoria of a Super Bowl
4) A rookie QB potentially winning a Super Bowl
5) Rex Ryan's arrogance potentially vindicated
