Connecticut Pig Predicts Super Bowl LIII in a Pigskin Prognostication
How much would you give to know the winner of the "Big Game" before the game even happens?
Well, thanks to a little pigskin prognostication, Racine the pig over at Petrichor Farm in Connecticut has actually predicted the winner as the Patriots and the Rams get ready for Super Bowl LIII. So I guess I should tell you to, "Thank the pig."
Now we could've used stats, saber metrics and plenty of other analytics to try and figure out who's got a chance to win the game, but that might cost millions of dollars and thousands of lives, so we did the next best thing. Just like last year, we traveled to the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, the gateway to New England to Petrichor Farm so we could once again get the official word from Racine the pig, who's never gotten a Super Bowl prediction wrong (this is only her second time making a prediction, but last year she nailed it).
So here's how we set things up this year, because in any scientific experiment like this, you have to have a common variable. Due to the snow and ice, Racine only had a small area of the pen to wander, so we had Hillary from the farm hold two strings with munchkins attached — munchkins are a rare delicacy for pigs. Each string of munchkins represented one of the two teams involved in this year's game. Whichever group of munchkins Racine went after would be ruled the predicted winner of the Big Game. Now, I know the suspense is killing you, so just click on the video and find out who Racine picked:
