Bookies, take note. Walnut Creek Mayor Bob Simmons is loose with another football prediction.
Last week, Patch asked Hizzoner to pick the game between the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers. He had the score a little lower than it turned out, but he had the margin right — Niners by 4.
In the meantime, the Green Bay Packer bailed Simmons out by losing, so he didn't have to pick between the Niners and the Pack. Simmons, a Wisconsin native, still has a soft spot for Green Bay.
This week the mayor says its Niners 23, New York Giants 21.
