2012 Super Bowl prop bets are one of the last refuges for football fans alienated by the New York Giants-New England Patriots matchup, and as usual they begin at fun and move toward ridiculous from there. With that in mind, here are some fun ones and some ridiculous ones, with no hope or question of making money involved:
How many times will Peyton Manning be shown on Television during the game? This should be especially fun for fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, who will be waiting for him to tear off his Indianapolis Colts sweatshirt while on the jumbotron. If Tom Brady's son is shown on TV, will he be wearing a Tom Brady jersey? I like this one because it allows me to imagine a universe in which everyone in the Tom Brady household, including the butler, Drew Bledsoe, wears a Tom Brady jersey at all times. Authentic—none of that replica garbage in the Tom Brady house.
Which will be higher? BenJarvus Green-Ellis's total rushing yards, or Mitt Romney's total vote share in the Nevada primary? The action is much higher on, "Who will have more names? BenJarvus Green-Ellis or any two men?"
