Sports icon Tiger Woods is the latest entertainer to weigh-in on this upcoming weekend's Super Bowl XLVIII match-up between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
Woods said he would pull for the Broncos in light of his personal relationship with quarterbackPeyton Manning.
"I like the Broncos. I'm good friends with Peyton (Manning)," he said. "Let's be honest, he got scrutinized pretty hard when he left (the Colts) that he would never be the same after his neck surgery, and it's right, he's not the same; he's better. That's cool to see. That's cool to see the hard work that he put in to shut everybody up." (Golf Channel)
This week, Def Jam rapper Fabolous predicted the Broncos would snatch the Lombardi trophy.
"Live from @BryantParkNYC on @ESPN_FirstTake with @StephenASmith, @SkipBayless, & @CariChampion this morning. My Super Bowl winner prediction is the Denver Broncos. Not saying I don't respect the Seahawks & I'm a fan of Richard Sherman's play & rant talks, but I think Denver's offense is strong & their Defense also is no slouch. Either way it should be a great Super Bowl. They also asked if Melo should stay wit the Knicks. And I believe he should. I believe he's planting his feet in the NYC soil but it's now the organizations job to put the right pieces around him. As a fan & a friend I love him playing in the city he was born in & reppin my city!" (Fabolous' Instagram)
Earlier in the week, Young Money's Lil Wayne admitted he had a hard time believing one-time Super Bowl champion Petyon Manning's Broncos would fall to the Seahawks.
"Honestly, I don't want to use the word 'surprised,' but it is unexpected to see Seattle in the Super Bowl. I expected Peyton. He's been there before. And I love Russell Wilson. But they are not playing in Seattle. I just can't see Peyton losing. ... [Peyton] is special. He is one of a kind. I am glad I am able to live to see him, to see the kind of things he is doing."
