A Super Bowl for the true fan

In so many ways, this Super Bowl is a fun football game to ponder. Rodgers has put up, at times, incredible playoff numbers, but it's Roethlisberger that owns the two Super Bowl rings and 11-2 post-season record, plus an uncanny ability to make the big play exactly when it's needed.

Then you have the two defenses, brilliantly put together by LeBeau and Green Bay counterpart Dom Capers. Both are 3-4, both force lots of turnovers and both, as personified by James Harrison and Clay Matthews, can hit you hard.

For all of the history they have generated, the Steelers and Packers have never met in the post-season until now. What

a time to do it, in a Super Bowl where all the pretensions and excesses should just take a one-year holiday. Let us have this game, with these fans, and let's just enjoy it.
