Having a guy on staff who is constantly under pressure from the "History Channel" to produce more and more "end of the world" shows doesn't make it easy for us to get him to find time to make a prediction for us. Since he works on a "per prediction basis", and he keeps raising his costs, it's become very expensive for us to keep him on board. But we only give you the best here at "P.B.&G.", so sit back and get your preview of tonight's game. 

"P.B.& G.": So which team's defense will be more effective in this game?

NOSTRADAMUS: I can answer that, but I'll have to charge you additional if I do. Your contract states that I will "provide you with the result of the Pittsburgh Steelers-New York Jets game.

"P.B.& G.": But don't you have to already know that in order to make your prediction?

NOSTRADAMUS: Sure I do. So what, you want me to give these away for free?

"P.B.& G.": Never mind. The fans have heard all of that until they're now blue in the face anyway. So let's get down to brass tacks. Who do you think will win this game?

NOSTRADAMUS: I predict: The team that scores one more point than the other will win this game.
"P.B. & G.": Hey, we paid way too much money to get a garbage answer like that!

NOSTRADAMUS: Alright, alright, settle down. I was just fulfilling another prophecy that I made just last week that said, "And the editor was furious. His wallet literally burned in apprehension."

"P.B.&G.": C'mon, get on with it, it's almost kickoff!

NOSTRADAMUS: Boy, I can tell that you're uptight over this game! Settle down!! Here's your quatrain: The men of the many rivers will prevail again. The suffocation will be difficult for the faint-hearted to watch. Expect a 20-9 score. Oh, and look for a young lad named "Antonio" to dash the hopes of the invaders. (There, I threw that one in at no additional charge).
