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.
