With all the posturing and wagering going on the last two weeks, the parties and commercials are almost a bigger deal than the game itself. But the game means something...you can even bet on the God factor. And if you were in any doubt as to who was going to win the Super Bowl, look no further. The Louisville Zoo’s Amber the Orangutan has spoken, and she’s going with the Patriots.
As part of her Animal Enrichment Program, Amber was faced with a choice. One that typically is used to give mental and physical stimulation to animals suddenly became a choice with huge consequences.
Amber was given a choice between Patriots and Giants t-shirts. She first grabbed the Giants shirt, but then grabbed the Patriots shirt. After going back and forth between the two, she finally chose the Pats shirt and put it on.Please don’t think her pick was akin to a youthful, rash decision. No sir, this chimp is 20 years old, and has seen it all. Or at least as much as a Orangutan living in a zoo for that long can see. I can only imagine that as the Vegas bookmakers read this they’re shaking their heads, thinking to themselves: it’s that easy?
