Mike and Mike Sound Off About Super Bowl XLVIII

ESPN radio/TV hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic share their Super Bowl XLVIII predictions, analysis, and healthy snacking tips.

MF: What are your Super Bowl picks?

Greenberg: If weather is a major factor in the game, I like the Seahawks to win. If weather is not a major factor, I like the Broncos to win.

Golic: I don’t care what the weather is I think Seattle is going to win. I was a former defensive player in the NFL so I am going to go with the great defense. 27-24 Seattle.

MF: What advice do you have for people trying to get to MetLife Stadium for the game?

Greenberg: Be patient. At any Super Bowl, and certainly one around New York City where it is already busy and congested, it is just not as easy to get from one place to another as you would like it to be. If you’re willing to be patient, everything will be fine. Everything will be worth it when you finally arrive there. While you’re getting around, as everything takes a little longer, you should have a bag of California Almonds with you to curb that hunger. If you need a snack and you can't find a place to get something to eat real quick, it's right there and easy. Curb those hunger pangs that otherwise can be a major nuisance during Super Week.

Golic: Greeny grew up in New York so he is going to know best how to deal with the New York traffic and crowds.

MF: What are some of your favorite foods to eat while watching football?

Greenberg: A good plate is almonds, cheese, fruits, and crackers. Don’t forget about dark chocolate-covered almonds.

Golic: I’ll be one of many who are having get-togethers where you have all the good and bad food. Some people will have wings—I will too—but I’ll also have my almonds. Filling up on almonds makes it great to not pig out on the really bad food for me. If you eat some good food, whether it's fruits, vegetables, or almonds, that can fill up you some. Snacking on healthier foods stopped me from eating so much of the wings and foods like that.
