Here's the annual Super Bowl poem and prediction from Chicago's famous prognosticating nun. She has been
predicting playoff games and Super Bowls since 1986, posting an outstanding 18-7 record (72 percent) in Super Bowl predictions over that span.
Prolific Packers prevail
Welcome frenzied fans to the Lone Star State,
Steel City and Titletown — two storied teams that are great.
Rodgers' air show quickly leads the Pack out of the gate,
Big Ben's clock is rung and he can't stand up straight.
Mike McCarthy's focused TEAM is ready to go,
Raji, "The Freezer," is stocked and he won't be slow.
These resilient Packers smile and say cheese as they beat their foe,
The Lombardi Trophy returns to the Badger State where it will glow.
The "Here We Go Steelers" chant is saved for another year,
No "Seventh Heaven" as the Terrible Towels are soaked with tears.
Greg, Clay, and Charles have nothing to fear,
The Green Bay Packers prevail in Texas — this much is clear.
Sister Jean's prediction for the final score of Super Bowl XLV is Packers 24, Steelers 21.
