Sister Jean Kenny, dubbed the "Psychic Nun," alas, has no actual psychic abilities. No divine power has whispered in her ear, Steelers by 6.

Yet in 23 years of Super Bowl prognostications, Sister Kenny—of St. Francis Borgia Parish on the Northwest Side—said she has amassed a 17-6 record, a winning percentage impressive enough to garner national attention. She has appeared alongside Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno and on CNN.

Sitting in the piano room of her parish, wearing an ornate cross necklace and with a copy of Pro Football Weekly in her hands, Sister Kenny said with a snicker: "I'm not bragging, but I'm pretty good."

The "Psychic Nun" actually prefers "Super Bowl Sister," because her predictions are based on statistics, not channeling the beyond.

So there you have it.
