|BABY DOG CELEBRATES PREDICTIVE PROWESS|
Also on Monday, Gov. Justice was joined by his bulldog, Baby Dog, who celebrated correctly predicting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would win Super Bowl LV over the weekend.
The Governor brought Baby Dog in for his briefing last Friday to make the prediction as a way to urge West Virginians to avoid large Super Bowl parties.
“She’s in charge,” Gov. Justice said last Friday. “You don’t need to watch the game.”
But few could have imagined how insightful Baby Dog’s prediction would actually be.
In addition to correctly predicting that Tampa Bay would win the game, she also correctly predicted that the Buccaneers would score exactly 31 points.
“She whispers to me all the time and she says, ‘Listen to the Baby Dog,’” Gov. Justice said with a smile on Monday.
“I only say this in jest because the good Lord gave you the ability to smile and to laugh,” Gov. Justice continued. “This year has been tough stuff, hasn’t it? Really and truly, we need to smile and laugh a little bit.”
