gildas-picks-3

Super Bowl 2017
Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017
Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots
6:30 ET, Fox
NRG Stadium, Houston, Tex.
Game to watch: Duh . . . .

Gilda picked one of the two conference championship games correctly last week.

Gilda sez: Atlanta Falcons by three! Matt Ryan is a high quality guy; ninety percent of the people we’ve talked to hate Tom Brady as much as we do!
Definitely looking forward to that halftime show with Lady Gaga!
