Orange, one of the harbor seals here at The Maritime Aquarium, has made her Super Bowl XLVIII prediction and according to her picks, the Denver Broncos will emerge victorious! (Sorry about that, Seattle fans!)
We tied each teams’ colors to a football and had Orange retrieve one as her pick. To give each team a fair shot, we had her pick best out of three. Orange even had some practice — our trainers held a practice run yesterday so she was ready for her big day. See the behind the scenes photos and video of a seal football scrimmage here.
We’re not sure how much stock to put into her prediction, though. The last two years our seals have picked a winner they were wrong, so could her choice actually be good news for the Seahawks? Only time will tell…
Watch Orange in action:
Tune in on Super Bowl Sunday and see if Orange finally got it right! The game starts at 6:30 p.m. on FOX.
