Check out the ASP’s Super Bowl Picks
The morning of the big game, I asked the other editors and sports staff their picks for the Super Bowl. By the time the print edition comes out on Tuesday, we’ll know the actual results. Feel free to let us know how we did on Twitter @ASP_Sports, Instagram @albanystudentpress and Facebook “Albany Student Press”. Send me your complaints @RobLep23 on Twitter as well.
Lep’s Take: I learned a long time ago that you never bet against Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. It is amazing to me how somehow the “Brady Bunch” has changed the narrative to make us all believe that the PATRIOTS, the team that come Super Sunday will have played in four of the last five SBs and eight straight AFC Championships, is somehow the underdogs in this game. Yes Tom, at 41 years old you’re “NOT DONE!” and neither are your Patriots, arguably the greatest dynasty in sports history. The all-time GOAT Brady captures ring No. 6. He invites me over to his house for avocado ice cream. Gronk goes out into the sunset on top. Belichick might actually smile in the post-game press conference.
