After all the dust settled, all the sh*t-talk ceased, and all the fans stopped screaming, only 2 remain. The Packers and the Steelers will represent the NFC and AFC respectively in Superbowl XLV.
Ben Roethlisberger knelt on the turf and buried his head in an AFC championship shirt.
“I’m going to enjoy this,” he later said.
No one had to ask what he meant.
A season that began with a four-game suspension is one win away from giving him a third Super Bowl victory….
“Shoot, any time you get to the Super Bowl, it feels good,” he said. “I don’t care what you’re going through or what’s going on. We put a lot of stuff behind us early and found a way.”
Translation: I’m happy as HELL that we settled out of court and ol’ girl couldn’t press charges against me for choppin’ down that azz in the bathroom!
On the Packers side of things:
There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC championship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers(notes).
He wasn’t even at his best and, still, he was better than the first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by the Chicago Bears against their bitter rivals.
Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-14 victory Sunday over Chicago.
“It’s an incredible feeling,” Rodgers said. “I’m at a loss for words.”
Looks the like this years National Football holiday will be rooted in tradition as two of the most storied franchises in league history will meet to see who’s who and what’s what. We here at Bossip don’t have a dog in this fight (Sorry Mike Vick) but it would have been nice to see MV7 in the big game
white some folks would’ve been mad at that…
Does this matchup make you excited for the Superbowl this year??
Are you surprised how the games turned out??
