Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT uses their lovely seals to predict the outcome of the Big Game coming up Sunday.
A 35-year-old Harbor seal named "Orange" was given pictures of a Patriots helmet and an Eagles helmet. Which ever helmet he put his nose on is the predicted winner.
This is a yearly thing for the Aquarium who says it's become quite the attraction in Norwalk. They've been doing it for 7 years, but sadly their prediction rating hasn't been great. The are 1 for 6 in getting it right. Last year, they somehow predicted the 4th quarter upset of the Falcons that no one else saw coming.

So who did Orange pick this year?
It seems the seal is rooting for the Eagles like most of the country. Apparently he's not a fan of dynasty teams. I don't blame him, but I'm guessing this may be another year of bad picks for the seals, even though I am rooting for the Eagles too.
