    ESPN's poll question of "Which team are you rooting for to win the Super Bowl?" nationally comes out 54%- 46% in favor of Seattle. And the map shows most states-- 36-- in favor of Seattle. That makes it hard to figure why Arizona and Louisiana are in favor of New England, while all the states surrounding them are for Seattle. Louisiana especially is intriguing, as its votes are 55-45 for New England, after 3721 votes-- virtually the opposite of its neighbors. Arizona is just 51-49, so that is within the margin of error-- and maybe enough NE fans are there to vote and count as if residents.

    So... why does Louisiana buck the trend of its neighbors and go for New England?

    I really don't know, all I can think of is that Arizona is in the NFC West with the Seahawks, while the Saints are in the NFC South. Maybe they want the AFC team to win?

    The answer lies somewhere in the same area as: "Why do so many intelligent people believe in evolution?"

    Suggested activity instead of Super Bowl at the coliseum: get together with loved ones and friends and "watch for Jesus and pray He will come soon." At half time get intrigued with: "well done, good and faithful servant."

    Father, forgive us, we know not what we do.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
