For the last 21 consecutive years, Scripps Howard News Service has polled hundreds of celebrities and public figures for their predictions on which NFL team will win the Super Bowl. This is the 10th consecutive year that Joan Jett has participated. This year, she picked the New Orleans Saints to beat the Indianapolis Colts, 45 to 33.
Joan has correctly predicted the winner of the last four consecutive Super Bowls. Over all, she has been correct 55.56% of the time, correctly predicting the winners of five of the last nine Super Bowls.
Every year since 2003, the celebrity who correctly predicts the winner and comes the closest to predicting the actual score wins the Scripps Howard Super Sage Award Trophy. Joan has never won, but last year actress Patricia De Leon became the first woman to ever win the award. That’s at least one barrier to females that Joan doesn’t have to knock down herself. 😉
Here is a list of Joan Jett’s Super Bowl predictions over the last 10 years, along with the actual results. (UPDATE: Source links added.)
