Super Bowl XL: Pittsburgh Steelers 21, Seattle Seahawks 10Published by Toronto Mike on February 6, 2006 @ 09:10 in Sports
In my adult life, I've never watched so little NFL action as I did during this past season. I saw the Colts blow their undefeated season, I saw the Colts lose in the playoffs and I watched yesterday's Super Bowl.
My interest in the NFL began to wane when my Buffalo Bills cut Doug Flutie. Then, there was this epiphany. I watch every Leafs game, a number of Jays games and a Raptor game here and there. Football, always number four on my depth chart, took the biggest hit when I began to procreate.
Yesterday's game wasn't a particularly good one. There were a few big plays, including a 43-yard chuck for a touchdown from wideout Antwaan Randle El, but for the most part Ben Roethlisberger and the gang were underwhelming. I'd say Pittsburgh didn't win their fifth Super Bowl but Seattle lost their first.
Once again us Canucks missed out on most of the best ads, but that's why Al Gore invented the Internets. Ever since Janet exposed her nipple jewelry the half time shows have been ultra safe. Now we have the Rolling Stones boring us to death and going so far as to remove the line "you make a dead man come" from "Start Me Up". Who's on tap for next year, dc Talk?
The Bus has made his last stop a successful one, winning it all in his home town. Jerome Bettis is the reason I was rooting for the Steelers. Satisfaction.
