  6. I am just rooting for Arizona. It pains me to see a team playing in the Super Bowl that my Colts so handily beat in their house like the Steelers. Here’s hoping Big Ben plays as lousy in this Super Bowl as he did the last time.

    And who’s Larry Fitzgerald? He in your shipping/receiving dept?

    Fitz 105 yards

  9. This oldy but goody Superbowl ad works for Pajamas Media or for Obamaniacs.

    Pittsburgh is rightly favored objectively, but I am going Arizona 24, Pittsburgh 17. Fitz for 95.

  10. Az 42 Pitt 17

    Fitz – 235yds w/ at least 4 TD’s

  12. Not rooting either way, but it would be satisfying to see the Pittsburgh slam-dunkers suffer the same fate as the Patriots slam-dunkers of last year. For the clued-in Steeler and Zonie fans who show respect for the opponent…may the game be ‘interesting’. I’ll sit back and admire the players perform under pressure. And may the zebras not turn into asses.

    Score prediction per conventional wisdom: Steelers 38 AZ 13. Fitzgerald 85.

    Score prediction for an upset: AZ 31 Steelers 27. Fitzgerald 80, Boudin 75.

    I have mixed feelings about Arizona. I’m mad at them for knocking the Falcons out of it, and grateful to them for doing the same to Carolina. My loyalty to the Falcons carries the day and I’ll root for the Steelers.

    Die in a god damn fire…

    *cough* Sorry. I’m ok now.

    I don’t care how much they win by, I just want the Cardinals to win…

    Because Holy God I hate the fucking Steelers…

    In fact, I hope that, during the first quarter, ever Steelers player bursts into flames…

  27. Arizona will use 3 WR sets early and keep a back to catch the blitzers. My guess is that will be Edge because of his experience. They will try to run early as well. You don’t want Warner to get pressure early because he’ll end up throwing INTs.

    I think they’ll get it done.

    Arizona 20, Pittsburgh 13.

    Larry Fitzgerald: 57 yards.
    Anquon Boldin: 127 yards. :)

    otcconan (d6afba)

  28. Oh, and for an extra bonus, Big Ben will be sacked 6 times, and Tim Hightower will score at least one of AZ’s TD’s.

    If Warner throws more than one INT AZ will lose.

    otcconan (d6afba)

  29. And my cat, Spartacus, says Arizona is going to win. His words.

    Fitz, even 100 because it’s even.
    Yawn.

  42. Game started, prognostication over.

    John Hitchcock (fb941d)

  43. My football pool numbers suck and the only chance I have if both teams start scoring big. Doesn’t look like Arizona will help me out with that. So I am drinking Root Beer that my 8 year old made that went, well, a little bit beyond root beer but not quite to ale. Making it not something I would want but ruling it out for the next kid’s snack time. Extra vodka seems to help get it to where it needs to be.

    What were we talking about?

    Joe (17aeff)

  44. Cardinals made a game of it in my opinion.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  45. Pitt 27 Arizona 23

    Patoooieee (44cef5)

  46. You sure you want to stick with that prediction, Patoooieee? Not sticking your neck out?

    SPQR (26be8b)

  47. Commercials 3:28 of air time on the news.
    Game 2:58 of air time on the news.

  48. I just wanna say:

    Bullshit that being a fumble.

    Scott Jacobs (who wants DRJ to come back) (90ff96)

  49. That game just took 3 years off my life. But the good guys won.

    John Hitchcock (fb941d)

  50. Did you see Santonio’s homage to LeBron? Definitely gave me a chuckle.

    John Hitchcock (fb941d)

  51. None of my pool number picks worked. I was hoping for a Cardinal victory, not that I like the Cardinals or hate Pittsburgh, but I felt like I had to root for the underdog. The Cardinals just made too many mistakes early on, but a heck of a try at a comeback.

    Joe (17aeff)

  52. The hard root beer is an idea that should die. I am already getting a head ache.

    Joe (17aeff)

  53. It was a great game but was decided by that interception at halftime. The Cardinals did a great job. Kurt Warner should be in the hall of fame the day after he retires.

    Mike K (2cf494)

  54. I feel bad for Warner. He is a great job, but one mistake too many.

    Joe (17aeff)

  55. Yuck, hate Pittsburg. Anyway, can’t wait for next September.

    Obama über alles!!!!! (48dd5e)

  56. Well, at least I got one thing right, that most of Larry Fitzgerald’s yards would come in the fourth quarter!

    My Raiders will win it all next year. Why, Al Davis is positively drooling in at the thought of Michael Vick getting out of jail. :(

    Dana the Oakland Raiders fan (3e4784)

  57. Steelers Nation, baby!

    rightwingprof (fbb932)

  58. Oakland needs Michael Haynes more than it needs Michael Vick. Michael Haynes and Lester Hayes.

    John Hitchcock (fb941d)

  59. Though the game is now history, I am happy that is was a GREAT game!

    Who knows maybe AZ can get a do-over next year…

    Congrats to the Steelers for their 6th title!
