A couple of last points to make regarding the Super Bowl…
- You’ve got to love Ben Roethlisberger for giving love to his O-Line after the game, even though his front 5 had him scrambling the field all night. I have a soft spot for the big guys up front (so much so that I married one!) and it’s great to see them get credit for something other than an off-sides or holding penalty. Big Ben is not only a great quarterback but a smart leader as well, because nothing motivates a lineman more than knowing his quarterback has his back.
- If you’ve never listened to Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio you should start. His commentary is smart, funny and thought provoking. This morning he made a good case that the Steelers should replace the Cowboys as “America’s Team”. I tried to get an excerpt of his comments but here is the gist of it. He basically said that if Americans are lazy, spoiled, prima donnas that can’t deliver when it counts then the Cowboys should indeed be America’s team. If Americans are honest, hardworking, down-to-earth people who know how to win when it counts then the Steelers should be America’s team. I don’t know about you, but I vote for the Steelers.
- Is it just me or is Steeler head coach Mike Tomlin hot? He was interviewed after the game with his wife and three kids. There is nothing sexier than a man who loves his family!!!
