With the Super Bowl less than a week away, do you have a favorite? A lot of people are making predictions about the big game, even animals. There’s a sea lion in the Bronx Zoo who thinks the Giants are going to win. A camel in New Jersey named Princess also picked the Giants. She’s a little more reliable, picking five of the last six Super Bowl champions. Finally, Dolphins at the Georgia Aquarium correctly predicted a Giants-Patriots match-up in the Super Bowl. But, predicted that the ‘Dolphins’ will win on Sunday???? http://www.marketplace.org

That wrecked Italian cruise ship (the Costa Concordia) will likely remain on its side until the end of the year or longer before it can be broken up or salvaged. Divers found a 17th victim on Saturday, leaving 15 people still missing after the disaster on January 13. Divers suspended work on Sunday after heavy seas and strong winds caused the ship to noticeably shift. Bad weather had already delayed plans to begin removing the 2,300 tons of diesel fuel in the ship’s tanks. http://www.myfox8.com/news/sns-rt-us-italy-shiptre80p20i-20120126,0,5815402.story
