I saw last week's question as a way to check how many pollsters were devoted to the solo adventures of Booster Gold (with sidekick) and how many preferred the JLI/Blue Beetle version of Booster Gold. Thanks for voting, even if you didn't like your options.
Last week's poll question: How important is the presence of Skeets to your enjoyment of a Booster Gold adventure? (38 votes)
With the Super Bowl coming this weekend, it's been impossible to avoid news of the accusation that the New England Patriots broke the rules to win games by letting air out of footballs. Earlier in the week, we learned that Booster will be pulling for the Seahawks this weekend. But what does Booster, a former football player punished for rules infractions, think about this "Deflategate" fiasco?

I'm always particularly tickled when I see Booster Gold referenced outside the world of comic books. So you can imagine my amusement when I saw that Kissing Suzy Kolber, an Uproxx.com satellite site devoted to NFL football, had referenced Booster Gold (and Skeets!) in an article on superhero predictions for Super Bowl XLIX.
BOOSTER GOLD: I really gotta hand it to the Seahawks– their brand integration is top notch. I don’t want to know how much the Mars company pays them for all that Skittles stuff. Gotta be boatloads of money. Plus, as a glory boy myself, I really, really dislike Pats fans. Skeets and I think the Hawks take it by 3.
Hard to doubt a pick made by a time-travelling quarterback. To read the predictions of other heroes, visit out kissingsuzykolber.com.

Before the game this past Sunday, all the talking heads wanted to discuss Peyton Manning's legacy. Sure, Peyton had a bad game, but at least he wasn't gambling on the Seahawks. If Booster Gold can bounce back, I think there may be hope for this Peyton Manning guy.
Last week's poll question: If Booster Gold had become an NFL quarterback instead of a super hero, would he be better than Peyton Manning? (39 votes)
Two years ago, I asked which Olympic summer games event Booster Gold would be best in. Now that winter is here, I ask again.

Fingers are crossed everywhere.
Last week's poll question: Does the announcement that Ted Kord is coming to the nu52 in April mean that Booster Gold's return is also imminent? (40 votes)
Believe it or not, just in time for Super Bowl XLVIII, I present the 200th Boosterrific Poll question.

While Booster Gold is no doubt a superior athlete, he'd have a very had time throwing a basketball accurately 50 yards down field to an open receiver. It's not Booster's fault: you simply can't throw a "perfect spiral" with a round ball.
Instead of a round ball, American Football employs a prolate spheroid. In addition to the added benefit of the aerodynamic profile of the prolate spheroid, it is also easier to grip in one hand, thus allowing the passer to impart proper rotation to the football via the throwing motion. The rotation adds gyroscopic stability to the ball, resulting in faster, longer, and more accurate passes.
I know that you're just trying to be nice, Skeets, but so long as you look like a bloated cue ball, you'll not be participating in many successful Hail Marys.
