Pigskin pickin' camel says Pats will top Jets

The Jets don't have what it takes to finally get over the hump and pass the New England Patriots atop the AFC East tomorrow.

That's according to a pigskin-picking camel named Princess at Lacey Township's Popcorn Park Zoo.

Princess is a perfect 10-0 this year in handicapping NFL games. She also predicted the Pats would fall to the Giants in the Super Bowl.

The camel, who once belonged to heiress Doris Duke, has a simple way of predicting the outcome of games.

The zoo's general manager will choose a game at random, place a graham cracker in each hand, and use a permanent marker to scrawl the name of a competing team on each hand.

Whichever hand Princess nibbles from is her "pick."
