Although I am a crazy hockey fan, I do enjoy watching football as well. Being from Pittsburgh we usually always have a good team so the games are a lot of fun to watch. This year the Steelers made it all the way to the Super Bowl, the second time in 3 years! Not many people thought that they could so it with all the injuries and guys being out, but they did. Unlike most people in the city I’m not a crazy Steeler fan, but since they were in the Super Bowl I was pretty excited and decided to have people over for the Super Bowl.
One thing that is great about Super Bowl parties is that there is always a lot of food and beer and we had plenty of each. We had wings, chips and salsa, spinach dip, rolled tacos, pizza, and a few other things. It is one of the only times I’ve actually had a good amount of people over my house for an event, it was pretty cool.
The Steelers started out the game strong going up 10-0 in the first half, but the Cardinals slowly started coming back making it a 10-7 game. Just when you thought they were going to score again Harrison came up huge and made and interception and ran the ball back down the field 100 yards for the touchdown, that made it 17-7 going into the half.
Wow what a boring half time show, seriously Bruce Springsteen? I can’t remember the last half time show that was actually entertaining, do you?
The second half started with the Steelers getting a field goal and going up 20-7. The Cardinals were not going away though, Fitzgerald scored to make it a 20-14 game. Then the Steelers were back at their one yard line and got a penalty in the end zone which is an automatic safety. The Steelers were in more trouble as Fitzgerald caught a 64-yard touchdown pass, putting the Cardinals up 23-20. The Steelers marched back down the field with only 2:30 left on the clock. Then it happened Big Ben threw a rifle pass to Holmes at the corner of the end zone for a touchdown. What a sick catch, the Steelers were up 27-23 with 35 seconds left and they went on to win the Super bowl! The 6th Super Bowl in Steelers history, the most by any NFL team!
