It is that time of tha year again. One of my favorite days of tha year, tha super bowl! This year it involves two very distinguishing teams: the Pittsburgh Steelers (afc champs) and the Arizona Cardinals (NFC champs). Here is a bit more info about these teams.
Pittsburgh Steelers: the steelers have been in existance since 1933 but had been a dormant team until the early 70s when a powerful offense and a stellar defense know as the Steel Curtain. In this time period, the steelers won 4 Super Bowls in 6 years (1974,75,78,79) and got one for the thumb in 2005. The steelers are greately known for their powerful defense which has been it's strength for the past 40 years. In 2009, they wish to accomplish a super bowl feat and win one for the other thumb.
Arizona Cardinals: Established in 1898 as an amateur football club, the cardinals are the oldest running pro football team in the NFL. Yet with that, the cardinals hold the second-longest championship drought in north American sports (Chicago cubs longest). The cardinals reach their first championship game in 60 years with a powerful offense and suprising defense. This time around, they want to show the league who we thought they were!
This is a great matchup, but who will win the forty-third Lombardi trophy?
I choose the underdog Cardinals to surprise tha world in a great matchup.
