    According to Bodog.com, the over/under on how many times a FOX announcer says Brett Favre is 2.5.

    I'll bet they quadruple that in the first two drives.

    If they include the pre-game show, it's easy money.

    I don't think it does. I'll bet they say his name 20 times between kickoff and the end of the game.

    Knowing the bet is out there and it's a talking point among the masses, I'm sure they'll be told in production meetings to tone it down. 2 1/2 seems low though.

    BTW last week Rodgers was 50-1 to score the game's first touchdown. Damn I wish I had seen that ahead of time. He led the team in rushing TDs during the regular season.

    Do they have to say "Brett Favre," or would "Favre" or "No. 4" or such variations count?

    The real easy money is on the over of 1 minute, 50 seconds for Christina Aguilera to sing the National Anthem.

    Over/under on how long whoever's singing the national anthem holds "Brave" is like 6 seconds.

    Or someone at FOX is asking Joe to just squeeze in that third reference for his cousin's wife's brother, who needs a new pair of shoes.

    Someone wants to get rich on the Packers with a $1 million bet.
