I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there...please make Marques Colston the Super Bowl MVP, Superman

That would be the greatest thing ever. Billions and billions of people watching the Super Bowl and learning that the best player on the field comes from a school that no longer plays football, because the sport didn't generate enough attention for Little Hofstra. How would you like that for unintentional irony, Mr. President?

And hey, three of the last six Super Bowl MVPs have been wide receivers (Santonio Holmes in Super Bowl 43--OK, really, after the mid-XXXs, it's impossible to remember what is what in Roman Numerals, there's a reason we ditched these thousands of years ago--Hines Ward in Super Bowl 40 and Deion Branch in Super Bowl 39), which matched the number of wide receivers who won the award in the first 38 years of the Big Game. So it's possible.

I can see it now: Colston catches four TDs in the Saints' 31-27 win, but one is off a halfback option from Reggie Bush so Colston wins the MVP over Drew Brees. Yes, Superman, make this happen. Or, at the very least, make sure 1 and 9 come thru in at least one quarter so my wife and I can win some money in one of those box pools.
