Most of America Has No Faith in Sexy Rexy's Bears
Sorry, Chicagoist, and transplanted Bears fans, most of the country believes that the Colts will win the Super Bowl on Sunday.
According to a poll at ESPN, every state except one would put their money on Indianapolis and their slick offense over the dominating (yet inconsistant) defense and explosive special teams.
With over 340,000 votes tallied, 68% of ESPN.com readers believe that Peyton Manning's team will win. 73% of Californian voters would bet Colts, 79% of voters from Washington, and a whopping 85% in Louisiana.
Outside of Illinois, the only state who sheds any hope for Da Bears is New Hampshire where 45% of voters (out of 1,269) think Lovie will be loving it on Super Sunday.
