"I'm rooting for Brett because I'm a diehard," Weezy explained to us early Thursday (January 21). A signed Favre football is one of the prize possessions in Weezy's extensive sports memorabilia collection. As for who the dynamic performer thinks will win the game, Wayne — who's appeared on ESPN a few times to talk sports — gave his analysis from an unbiased standpoint. Minnesota has a superior ground game and defense in his opinion.
"I believe the Vikings will win because of the running attack," Wayne assessed. "The Saints give up about 150 rushing yards a game, and the Vikings have arguably the best running back in the game [Adrian Peterson]. ... I believe the Vikings defense will frustrate Brees."
The New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings have a 6:40 p.m. kickoff time on Sunday evening. The winner goes to the Super Bowl, where they will play the victor of Sunday's Indianapolis Colts/ New York Jets game.
Last week, a handful of hip-hop stars, including Jay-Z, Fabolous and Jermaine Dupri, offered their Super Bowl predictions. All three were wrong in picking the Cowboys to represent the NFC. Meanwhile, Jay-Z and Fabolous still have a shot to see their teams from the AFC go to the big dance. Jay picked the Jets, while Fab is a fan of the Colts.
