Our indicted ex-governor Rod Blagojevich is among the "celebrities" Sports Illustrated online features in forecasting the outcome to this weekend's Super Bowl.
But Blagojevich, who will appear on "Celebrity Apprentice," this Spring: "does not consider himself to be a celebrity," says Glenn Selig, Blagojevich's publicity agent who sent out a release noting Blagojevich joined Usher, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli and others on the site. Blago's prediction: Indianapolis Colts 38-31 over the New Orleans Saints.
Says Blagojevich on SI.com: "The Colts' offense is better than the Saints' offense because they have the most valuable player in football, Peyton Manning. And the Colts' defense is better and faster than the Saints' defense. The only advantage the Saints have is on special teams, but that's not enough to overcome the advantage the Colts have on both offense and defense."
Blagojevich and his brother, Rob, are expected to be re-indicted by a federal grand jury tomorrow.
