There will be elation in Pittsburgh this week.
Officially the Best NFL Franchise Ever with their six Super Bowl victories, the Steelers won a very sloppy and very tight game against the downright feisty Arizona Cardinals. The result wasn't what I wanted, but it was a supremely enjoyable Super Bowl and we should all give a congratulations to fans over at Behind The Steel Curtain.
I even got to watch most of it, despite an unsettled stomach and pounding headache that made me feel like James Harrison was pummeling me. I hope the silence in the Super Bowl open thread meant that you all were either kicking back a few cold ones or eating enough chili and chicken wings to be considered a living biohazard by those who love you.
So celebrate another year gone by and get ready for the 2009 season. If 2008 was any indication, we should be heading for a very fun one.
