Sunday, January 18th — The Super Bowl

January 19, 2009

Today I Learned…

…that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals will meet in Tampa on Feburary 1st in Super Bowl XLIII.  While the Steelers will be going for their sixth Super Bowl title (which would give them more than any other team) and second in four years, the Cardinals will play in the first Super Bowl in franchise history and have not won a championship in 61 years — the second longest such streak in North American professional sports (behind, duh, the Cubs).

I’m a little sad that the Baltimore Ravens didn’t win yesterday, because if the Cardinals had beaten them in the Super Bowl, I believe they would have become the first team in NFL history to beat four other teams with bird mascots in a single season, as they already beat the Eagles, Falcons, and Seahawks this season.  That would have been kind of funny.

      It’s tough… I haven’t figured it out yet. Whether I think they’re going to win or not, I’m certainly going to be rooting for the Cardinals. How can you not?

  2. mike Says:

    Well, yeah, esp. w/ your AZ roots. I’m rooting for the Cards, but I am picking the Steelers by 20 or 21. I had the Cards (and Broncos) picked to play in the Super Bowl in like Week 6 or 7 (I have it written down somewhere if you’re curious).
