Teresian House Super Bowl accurately predicts Saints' Super Bowl victory

"This takes about an hour and a half to do the day before, and it's easily removable," said Campbell.

Twelve residents were chosen to be the players, while several more acted as cheerleaders during the game. Some of the players were veterans of Wheelchair Super Bowls of the past, while others were newcomers.

"This year, all the Angelic Saints are [nuns] that are living here, so that's how they were picked," said Campbell.

Like the real Super Bowl, the Saints won the coin flip for the Wheelchair Super Bowl and received the ball first. And like their counterparts from New Orleans, it took a while for the Angelic Saints to break through the Devilish Colts' defense.

But unlike the New Orleans Saints, the Angelic Saints scored first. That set off a touchdown frenzy that lasted until halftime, but the Saints held on to a 21-14 lead.

The second half provided the turning point of the game when the Devilish Colts missed an extra point attempt that would have tied the contest at 21. The Angelic Saints scored twice to go up 35-20 before the Devilish Colts made a comeback bid that ultimately fell one point short.

After the game, each player received a small football-shaped trophy vaguely reminiscent of the Vince Lombardi Trophy that's given to the real Super Bowl champion. More importantly, all the players left with smiles on their faces after a hard-fought Wheelchair Super Bowl.""
