Famous authors predict tomorrow's Super Bowl

http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2008/2/1rya...

Included: Cormac McCarthy, Raymond Carver x 2, Ayn rand, James Joyce, Jack Kerouac, and Jane Austen (I think that one's the funniest).

Thanks to Deadspin for the tip.

Nice article - I particularly liked the Carver schtick.

I have to admit I'm disappointed by the outcome of the game tonight, though, despite living in NY. I'm a Bucs fan, so I couldn't help imagining Earnest Graham being the one to succeed where Brandon Jacobs kept failing tonight. But also, I feel like I just wasted a season watching the Pats stomp everyone. What a sad collapse.

Patrick | 8 comments One of the better games in a while, though, at least at the end. Can't imagine what happened to the Pats defense on that last drive by the Giants. By the Manning to Tyree Davis pass was pretty incredible, I have to admit.

By the way, Conrad, are you still looking for football novels? I just found a free paperback of North Dallas Forty last week at a library bookstore. Yours if you want it...send me a GR e-mail if so.
