I’m pulling for the Rams in the Super Bowl, who’s not ? The Rams can win it but I’m not comfortable with the Rams quarterback. Jared Goff is good but he scares me on the big stage. Rams have the defense to give Little Tommy Brady some trouble, better be careful when you hit him though, he’s off limits. The over/under on how many wings I eat during the game is 9. Go Rams !
