Nicholas the Dolphin picks Chiefs to win Super Bowl LV

Nicholas The Dolphin

Today, on a day when the United States observed the time-honored tradition of forcing animals to make predictions that disappoint humans, Nicholas the Dolphin picked the Kansas City Chiefs to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV in Tampa Sunday night.

Nicholas, an Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin residing at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, has been predicting the outcomes of sporting events since 2017 with a record of 14-7 and has a current winning streak of six straight after successfully picking Alabama to beat Ohio State in the 2021 College Football National Championship in January.

Presented with a choice between footballs with the two Super Bowl teams logos on them, he picked the Kansas City ball with no hesitation.


  • Nicholas got his name when he was rescued on Christmas Eve in 2002!
  • Nicholas loves solving puzzles!
  • Nicholas is bitter about the fact that Disney made a movie about Winter and not him!
  • Dolphins like Nicholas are space aliens with special precognitive abilities!
  • Among his six losses was a streak of four straight, so he wasn’t such a hot shot then, was he?
  • No, he wasn’t!
  • Nicholas, like all dolphins, has an enormous brain!
  • Dolphins like Nicholas are superior to humans!
  • Nicholas is keenly aware of that last particular Fun Fact!
  • Nicholas apparently hates us and wants us to be miserable!
  • Winter has never made Buccaneers fans sad!
  • If the Bucs lose, it’s totally okay to blame Nicholas!

EDITOR’S NOTE: Please do not siege Clearwater Marine Aquarium and try to harm Nicholas the Dolphin; if you were thinking of doing that, you’re an idiot and no match for Nicholas the Dolphin.
