Winning Prediction in Bold

The local celebrity that agreed to predict NFL games this week is a big one. Literally.

KJEE’s Phat J, the radio DJ who looks like he could be an NFL lineman himself, can be heard on 92.9 FM?weekdays from 2 to 6 p.m. He encourages the town to join him at? the annual Peanut Butter Drive Holiday Show featuring Tommy and the High Pilots this Saturday, December 21 at SOHO. The concert helps benefit the Unity Shoppe.

Tommy and the High Pilots, KJEE’s Localize It Pick of the Week, are finishing an eight-date West Coast tour with their SOHO stop. The band will first visit the KJEE studio on Friday afternoon for an on-air appearance with Phat J.

As for football, Phat J is a San Francisco 49ers fan that had an easy time taking his favorite squad. The 10-4 Niners should do well at home against the 4-10 Atlanta Falcons. In his “upset” pick of the week, Phat J is rooting for the Baltimore Ravens (8-6) to knock off Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (10-4).

The “Local Celebrity Football Picks” promotion with PresidioSports.com and Santa Barbara Brewing Company?is raising money for local Junior Lifeguard scholarships while simultaneously raising awareness about different events and important causes around town.

Every week, Presidio Sports collects predictions from a local celebrity on the winners of NFL football games. Each correct pick triggers a donation that is accumulating throughout the season. The promotion will provide scholarship money for the seven-week summer camp that promotes fitness and an active lifestyle. For over 40 years, the Santa Barbara Junior Lifeguard program has helped develop youth with strenuous daily workouts, water safety, first aid, surf lifesaving, marine education and competition.

So far, Olympic beach volleyball champion Todd Rogers was nearly perfect. Rogers nailed 12-of-13 winners to really set the bar high. Then professional surfer Lakey Peterson took her turn predicting the winners from the NFL?s Week 9 slate of games. Lakey herself went through the Junior Guards program as a Santa Barbara youngster. Also having participated so far is KEYT Sports Anchor Mike Klan, Chicago White Sox pitcher Dylan Axelrod, Australian adventurer Tim Cope,?Independent columnist John Zant, and local entertainer DJ Curly.

The “Local Celebrity Football Picks” will be posted online each week and will also appear in the print weekly Santa Barbara Sentinel.
