Ape who has correctly predicted six straight Super Bowl winners picks Seahawks

January 30, 2014 - 10:24 AM

SALT LAKE CITY - A Utah ape that has correctly picked the Super Bowl winner for six straight years is predicting the Seattle Seahawks will be the next NFL champion.

Erica Hansen of Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City says Eli the ape ran into an enclosure Thursday and swiftly knocked down a papier-mache helmet bearing the Seahawks logo, signalling his pick. She says there was no hesitation.

That could mean bad news for Denver Broncos fans. The 13-year-old primate hasn't been wrong since 2006.

Last year, Eli charged out and knocked over a papier-mache goal post decorated with the Ravens logo. Sure enough, Baltimore beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
