Here we go, Steelers! Here we go!

Actually, I'm surprised that there there are such things as Japanese Steelers fans, knowing that Pittsburgh is not your regular tourist kind of destination, and that the large populous of rednecks there still hate the Japanese for the loss of the Steel industry (oh so long ago).

But who knows. The guy on the left certainly looks Japanese... And now I am aware of at least 2 other Pittsburghers in Japan besides myself.

Calm down guys, didn't anyone tell you that identifying yourself with a sports team is pathetic? They're not your friends or family I'm sure, and I can assure you that the team members, including the owner, don't give a damn about the city, the fans or you.

Wow...drinking on a Monday morning? I guess one good way to get rid of those Monday blues. Am gonna try it!

Was a worthwhile game to watch. Nice way to start off a new week. Definitely saw some speed with Fitzgerald handling the catch.

Well, they are Pittsburgh fans.

Ever since the Steelers were given the game by the officials in 2006, Seattleites have hated Pittsburgh, regardless of what you thought of the '70s dynasty. But that was the best game I can remember in 35 years of watching Super Bowls. Rarely have they been so close and/or come down to the final seconds. There have been lots of games won by less than a touchdown, but few were decided in the final two minutes.

Unless you watched a U.S. feed, you missed the best thing about most Super Bowls - the commercials.

What a great game. I don't think I was alone in thinking it would be a Pittsburgh blow-out but the Cardinals certainly brought their "A" game and made it quite a thriller. I was rooting for the under-dog Cardinals but I am also happy for Mike Tomlin. He's a great coach and deserving of the recognition that winning a Superbowl brings.
