Welcome to Empirical Purple

A blog by Simon Brady to cover a surprisingly wide range of geekiness, in a combination that no-one else does quite the same way. Probably. Either that, or it'll just be Simon talking about the likes of Football (usually the Soccer variety), PC & Tabletop Gaming, WWE, Movies, Music and occasionally even my actual job of Graphic Design, depending on what I'm up to in the world.

Not Great at Picking These

At least when I went to sleep they were up by a point, after Tom Brady had eventually waltzed his way 98 yards down the field like the Giants defence wasn't even there.

With zero actual knowledge of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the teams involved - something that has been the case for almost ten years now since I last could pick the outcome of an NFL game with any sort of accuracy - my prediction was always going to be a coin toss.

The evil, extra-hated by all concerned Patriots won the coin toss, at least. Our wistful, disconsolate losing Quarterback (who, let's face it, also has three Super Bowl rings to fit on his gigantic hands) gets to go home to his wife, Brazillian supermodel Gisele B√ľndchen.

So things can't be all bad in that particular Brady household. Disappointing to have lost two Super Bowls in 4 years (to the same team), but to have got to the Championship game five times in the last eleven years and have a 3-2 record can't itself be too bad.

There's always next year for me to be able to pick a winner correctly!
