Cheeseheads or Steelers? Only the animals know...

The Pittsburgh Zoo held its Super Bowl bash Feb. 2 and, according to one of its residents, the Steelers are going to take home their seventh Bowl trophy come Sunday night.


Angeline the prognosticating pachyderm chose the hometown team over the Green Bay Packers.


But not to be outdone, the Dallas Zoo's Jenny the elephant also threw her turban into the predicting ring, choosing to crush and eat a watermelon painted with the Steelers' colors, thereby picking the Packers to win.


Apparently, elephants aren't the only psychics at the zoo. Eli the orangutan, a resident at the Salt Lake City, Utah zoo, picked the Packers three separate times. Eli chose a box emblazoned with the Packers' colors and logo three times, and he smashed the Packers helmet in his habitat, while leaving the Steelers helmet alone.


Who knew orangutans were Cheeseheads?


There were also more than a few humans willing to stick their necks out and pick a Super Bowl winner. EA Sports held its annual matchup of the contest via the "Madden" video game, and that final score saw the Steelers on top 24-20.


The Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. (EST) Sunday at Cowboy Stadium.


We don't care who wins and we don't have a prediction. We just watch for the commercials.
