The Super Bowl is no monkey business for Eli. This orangutan at Hogle Zoo has accurately picked the winning team for the past five consecutive years.
Last Thursday, he didn't think twice about choosing the New York Giants. Elijah (Eli) climbed down the paper mache helmets last Thursday, and without hesitation, knocked over the New York Giants helmet - his way of telling the world that Eli Manning would take his team all the way.
That's better than Las Vegas, which predicted a Patriots win.
