Eli the ape ran into an enclosure Thursday morning and swiftly knocked down a papier-mache helmet bearing the Seahawks logo, signaling his pick, said Erica Hansen of Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City.
“He made his pick without any hesitation,” Hansen said.
The 13-year-old primate hasn’t been wrong since 2006. Last year, Eli charged out and knocked over a papier-mache goal post decorated with the Ravens logo. Sure enough, the Ravens beat the 49ers 34-31. Of course the Broncos fans were upset, but could Eli pick his seventh in a row?
“They are hoping that this is his first wrong year,” Hansen said.
I believe that Eli is going to be wrong, but who know’s maybe I’m going bananas….
