Even Major League Baseball is getting caught up in Super Bowl Sunday. In a recent survey of 27 players, coaches and broadcasters from 25 Major League clubs, the majority pick the Denver Broncos to beat the Seattle Seahawks.
In fact, almost two-thirds of the people surveyed pick Denver, and only three respondents are affiliated with the Colorado Rockies.
Colorado Rockies: OF Michael Cuddyer
“What Peyton Manning has done in the last two years is nothing short of remarkable, and I believe the Broncos will win.”
Colorado Rockies: Manager Walt Weiss
“The Broncos will win. Initially, I was going to say they were going to win big, but I didn’t factor in the weather, so it’ll be a little tougher. I’m saying Broncos by 10.”
Colorado Rockies: SP Tyler Chatwood
“I definitely want to pull for the hometown team, but I believe the Broncos are going to win. It’s pretty cool to have been in Denver all year and been able to root for them.”
The Seattle Mariners only had one representative surveyed.
Seattle Mariners: General manager Jack Zduriencik
“The Seahawks, no question. I love what they’ve done. When they’ve been knocked down at all, they’ve just gotten back up and kept going. It’s really been an impressive team to watch.”
