Will the Seahawks -- fresh from last year's win -- be able to repeat their Super Bowl magic and keep the Vince Lombardi trophy in Seattle? Or, will Tom Brady match the record of his boyhood idle, Joe Montana, for four Superbowl championships and be considered The. Best. QB. Ever. ??
Who knows?! We are a pet boutique, and will leave the sports analysis to the so-called experts and fans to debate over the next couple days.
However, pet insurance company VPI has compiled an interesting analysis of the outcome of Super Bowl XLIX based on a slightly different set of stats.
VPI analyzed its database of more than 525,000 insured pets to determine a victor based on pet name popularity. Results are below:
Team (number of pets with that name in parentheses)
Team Name: "Patriot" (13)
Quarterback: "Tom" Brady (594)
Head Coach: "Bill" Belichick (43)
Defensive Star: Darrelle "Revis" (9)
Legendary Player: "Tedy" Bruschi (1,598)
Mascot: "Pat" (4)
Team Name: Sea "Hawk" (23)
Quarterback: Russell "Wilson" (307)
Head Coach: "Pete" Carroll (172)
Defensive Star: Richard "Sherman" (127)
Legendary Player: "Steve" Largent (82)
Mascot: "Blitz" (75)
Based on the popularity of pet names the Patriots should have no problem defeating the Seahawks this Sunday. Best of luck to both teams.
As of late, VPI pet names have been a superb football indicator, correctly predicting the 2015 AFC and NFC championship games, as well as Ohio State's College Football National Playoff Championship win.
