@Clarabelle98 --- The Cards damn near did win!! It was EXTREMELY climactic! The winning touchdown was in the last 30 seconds of the game, which is one of like, two other times that has happened. It was a totally brilliant game! One of the few times in my life I've seen a game where it really was an edge-of-the-seat game until the last minute.

I'm a major Steelers girl, have been all my life, so when I found out Obama was a Steelers fan, I was tickled pink. To those of you who get irked by this -- sorry that some of us don't want to panic every minute of the day, every day of our lives. Some of us spend enough time just trying to survive in this country that we actually like to enjoy ourselves once in awhile. And what is Obama supposed to do when they ask him who he's rooting for? Just say "No comment", like it's some sort of 'taboo'? The next thing you know, people would say there's a conspiracy to take over the world via the Superbowl.

Sorry, but the Giants went down hard! I absolutely detest when fans say that a team "deserves" something when they lost fair and square.

Should have been the giants.

Pity Super Bowl is right. :rant:

Jude, I think that this year's Superbowl is kind of a pity Superbowl. For Pete's sake, the Cardinals were 9-7 in the regular season. Teams like that shouldn't make it to the finals!
chatondeneige chatondeneige 8 years
The Cardinals have never made it, so it's all the more incredible! And I hope I don't talk in my sleep, too! Two of my coworkers (the ones who are like, my close friends) know what I think will happen on Sunday, but we've all taken a vow not to discuss it. :)

Ostrich is very cranky.

Your ostrich is freakin me out. Imagine waking up and the first thing you see is that!? LOL!
Jude-C Jude-C 8 years
Yes, Ostrich and I disapprove of both teams this year. Bah!

See, I'm lucky. The seahawks rarely make it to the superbowl, so I don't have to worry about that TOO much. Better hope you don't talk in your sleep Chaton!

Jude, your ostrich looks so disapproving of Obama's football picks! hehe

clarabelle, I'm expecting the Cards to lose miserably, but I'm not allowed to say that at my sports bar, and I hesitate to say it online just in case anyone knows who I am. ;) The Cards are a historically terrible team, but the quarterback and the coach this year really deserve to be MVP and Coach of the Year just for the incomprehensible difference they've made to this team!

I can't agree with the President's stance on the Steelers.
clarabelle98 clarabelle98 8 years
I'm not really expecting anything. LOL I just know that over the years I've heard alot more about what a strong team the steelers are and not much about the Cards. That's what I'm basing my assumption on. Years and years of "research." LMAO

Im going against whoever my hubby is going for. ;)

clarabelle98, the Steelers are only favored by 7 points! And the Eagles were favored by more than that when the Cardinals beat them. And the Panthers were favored by 7, too! And the Cards pulled through in all of those! :) Besides, anticlimactic in this context means that you're expecting a super close game, and then it's a blowout. You clearly are expecting a blowout, and I'm not sure that's what you'll get.

Well, Steph, I guess the oil companies won't be asking for a bail-out next now will they? LOL

Who expected the Giants to beat those cheating Patriots last year? If I was the Steelers, I'd be worried. The Cardinals aren't a team to be taken lightly. Having said that, GO STEELERS!!! (As a Colt's fan, I feel oligted to root for the AFC, as long as it isn't the Patriots.)

Wow, Steph. Now I'm completely dumbfounded.. AGAIN. $45.2 billion...

This is going to be THE most anti-climactic superbowl EVER! I'm tickled that the cards made it, but really, who expects them to beat the steelers? I know next to nothing about football, and even I know that much! I thought Mary Jane was legal in switzerland? Or is that just Amsterdam? either way it's still funny that they found it on Google Earth. A co-worker just showed me that one dollar in US money is worth 34 BILLION in Zimbabwe. A loaf of bread there costs 10 million dollars. Last week an exorbitant amount of Zimbabweans (I can't remember the exact number he told me) were diagnosed with Cholera due to the levels of starvation there. Boy, when I see stuff like that it makes me a little less anxious about the US economy.

I'll be cheering for the Cardinals because I'd like to see a cactus planted outside the Pittsburgh stadium.
