Super Bowl XLIII

Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers on their 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. I'm not sure if I can put this game above last year's, but many analyst are calling it the greatest Super Bowl ever played.

The fourth quarter certainly was exciting, but I think that anytime we get a good game, the media jump on it as the greatest game ever. They've covered too many 48-10 type games that anytime they get an exciting finish or a close contest, it automatically becomes number one. What ever happened to the Rams/Titans Super Bowl? That one came down to the final play and one yard short of overtime. Or how about any of the Patriots Super Bowl vicotories with last minute field goals?

This year's game certainly lived up to the hype, but since the Cardinals were a surprise team participating, many didn't know what kind of game it would be. For it to come down to the final minutes and have lead changes late in the fourth quarter, it will definately go down as one of the most exciting, but best ever? Let's let history decide that one.
