Did the Czar expect the Saints to win? No, he figured on the Colts.
Was the Czar surprised by the result? No, because once againright at halftime, when Roger Daltrey realized he could no longer sing and Pete Townshend suspected that he was singing in a totally different keyGorT stepped out of the room.

He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
