Super Bowl XLToday, of course, is Super Bowl Sunday-the day every American football fan waits for all year long in anticipation of their team actually making it to the Big Game. For a lot of us, that doesn't happen, although my beloved Bengals came as close to the Super Bowl this year as they had in 15 seasons (and if Carson Palmer hadn't been hurt against the Steelers, they might have beaten Pittsburgh-then who knows what would have happened).
As much as it pains me to do so, I'll have to root for the Steelers in tonight's game, because with the exception of the Browns and the Ravens, I will not root against an AFC team in the Super Bowl.
Matt Daley is excited about this year's Super Bowl in a special way. Even though Matt is an Alabaman, (and a HUGE Crimson Tide fan) he currently lives in Findlay, Ohio. His family neighbor Ben Roethlisberger happens to be the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XL. Matt, a lifelong Dolphins fan, has been converted to Steelerism because of Big Ben's presence on the team. He'd love for Ben to have a great game tonight so he can not only tell all of his friends "I know somebody with a Super Bowl ring," but "I know the MVP of Super Bowl XL."
Enjoy the game!
