Superbowl XLV, Baby!

I have been away for far too long.  Also, I do not like this blog layout.  I must remedy this...well...at some point.

Yesterday I watched my boys beat the #1 seed to make their way to the Superbowl.  It was an up and down ride that's for sure.  They were kicking poor Jay Cutler's butt the whole first half until a mysterious knee injury got him pulled from the game.  After two horrible runs with the backup qb, Lovie Smith put in qb number three.  Number THREE, in the most important game of the YEAR.  This game decides whether or not you are the champions of your division - Jay Cutler is a baby.  All that aside, this actually proved to be a good move by Lovie; the Bears went on to score 14 points for what was *almost* a tie game. 

Oh, did I forget to mention the big guy that my team had out?


BJ Raji.  The "Freezer" intercepted a pass and ran it in for the touchdown that won us the title of NFC Conference Champs!

Today I am wearing my new Packers sweatshirt that I went out and purchased after the game.  I was hoping for a hat like the one Rodgers was wearing in the locker room, but Dick's was sold out of 200 in less than an hour! 

The Packers are facing off against the Steelers in Dallas on Feb. 6th.  The Steelers are a great team and that, my friends, should prove to be an amazing game!

Just a little correction - the Bears were number 2 seed. Please don't give them more credit than they deserve! : )

I knew it was wrong when I typed it, too.

Go Pack! I had no idea they were in the running until last week. We were in high school the last time they won, right? I remember watching that game. Man, I was so in love with Brett Favre back then.

Yep yep! It was the 96-97 year, I think. I could be wrong. My brain is old.
