A well-known penguin (sure, you learn that appropriately) has predicted a Cincinnati Bengals victory on the Tremendous Bowl LVI. Who would’ve thought?

Cincy was already heading into the Tremendous Bowl with a good likelihood at profitable all of it, regardless of being listed as 4-point underdogs.

Now, Cincy has the help of an influential determine…from the Arctic tundra. Ripley’s Aquariums, which has areas in Tennessee, South Carolina, and Canada, boast their very personal “MVP,” or most respected penguin.

A four-year-old African penguin named Fleury was introduced with two choices for the Tremendous Bowl winner: waddle to the left for the Rams, and waddle to the fitting for the stripes.

In a must-watch video, the ever-adorable Fleury ended up waddling proper, selecting Cincinnati because the nationwide champions.

Fleury’s decide could also be taken with a heaping of salt, although, because the penguin incorrectly predicted the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs profitable final 12 months in opposition to Tampa Bay.

Right here’s an announcement from the aquarium’s vp, Ryan DeSear:

“Out to redeem herself after final 12 months’s decide, we had been shocked when Fleury chosen the underdog Bengals, however Cincinnati is far nearer to her Gatlinburg residence at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.”

Come Tremendous Bowl Sunday, Fleury gained’t be the one one with one thing to show.

The Bengals will likely be looking for their first Tremendous Bowl title, which might hinge on the performances of Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, the collective Bengals’ defensive unit, and a number of other different stars.

On paper, the Rams have the extra well-rounded crew and a way more skilled head coach in Sean McVay.

What Los Angeles doesn’t have, although, is the backing of Fleury the penguin. Fleury isn’t the one animal linked to the Bengals this 12 months — some Bengals gamers are dedicating the Tremendous Bowl to a gorilla named Harambe, who was notoriously killed on the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016.

Whether or not it’s Fleury, Harambe, or one other dignified creature, the animal kingdom will roar for Cincy on Sunday.
