Camel Picks Packers
Yes, It has gotten that serious. We all want an inside edge on who’s going to win the “Big Game.” As the years pass, we all seem to be talking to the animals more and more for the answers. Penguins, tigers, orangutans, elephants.. Oh My! They’ve all joined in with the experts. One camel in New Jersey has a pretty impressive record at picking… 74 and 45. This year the camel is picking Green Bay as the winner. Maybe Las Vegas should be calling “Lacey the Camel” for their edge.
The Bactrian camel’s prognostication skills flow from her love of graham crackers. John Bergmann, the zoo’s general manager, places a cracker and writes the name of the competing teams on each hand. Whichever hand Princess nibbles from is her pick for that week.
“What started out as a fun weekly activity a few years ago has become an annual tradition,” he said. “Princess has her own fan base, probably as strong as some of this year’s NFL quarterbacks. She is definitely our MVP.”
I tried to get my dog to give me her opinion on the game by using dog biscuits. She at the biscuits and told me she was more of a baseball fan.
