Buffett again nails Super Bowl pick

Mote manatee has been right nine times in 11 years.

If life as a Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium manatee ever gets stale for Buffett, he seems naturally qualified as an oddsmaker.

For the ninth time in 11 years, Buffett correctly picked the Super Bowl winner, in this case the Philadelphia Eagles, a 4.5-point underdog to the New England Patriots.

Hugh, another manatee at Mote, chose the Patriots. Hugh has chosen correctly six times.

Hugh and Buffett know to swim to one of the team logos, attached to a makeshift goal post, because of their training. Mote has a special permit to train Hugh and Buffett.
