One minute and thirty six seconds left in the Superbowl. I don't have a clear favorite even yet. I mean, I had the beautiful hair of Troy Polamalu of the Steelers, their Head Coach, Mike Tomlin, has ties to Memphis and Ben Roethlisberger being injured a couple years ago on his motorcycle only to return to football. And today with Matt Lauer, President Obama endorsed the Steelers!
But my heart strings were tugged with the Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald's touching story about not taking the time to see his mother before she died. Not to forget the Comeback Kid, Kurt Warner who took the St. Louis Rams to the Superbowl and won it, only to be sent packing! Cold blooded!
But Arizona gave us John McCain and doesn't recognize the federal holiday of Dr. King's Birthday. . .
I don't know. May the best team win!

I just finished watching and re-watching the Pre-Game Show. I love my DVR. The NFL honored Arizona Cardinals Quarterback Kurt Warner with the Walter Payton "Man of the Year Award", recognized the US Airways Flight 1549 crew who rescued 150 passengers on Hudson River last month, my Mississippi homegirl Faith Evans sang "America The Beautiful" and the beloved Jennifer Hudson sang "The Star Spangled Banner". I was emotional and the players seemed emotional as well. How do you expect them to go out there after that and play football?
We'll just have to see what happens.
As you can see by my Superbowl attire pix above, I am in denial! Steve McNair is retired and the Ravens are NOT in the Superbowl.
