At long last, after a brutal season of body bashing, glory and shame, we come to Super Bowl Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, with their vaunted No.1 rated defense, versus the suprising and inspiring Arizona Cardinals, they of the explosive offense and suprising late season stingy defense.

The Steelers are favored to win it all, and it's easy to see how that conclusion was gotten. Stout defense that can shut you down and an offense that does just enough to win the game. You have the added bonus of Ben Rothlesberger, who won a Super Bowl even tho he stunk of the field with the worst qb performance ever!

Arizona has my main man I spoke of last week, Kurt Warner, who is on his quest for NFL immortality. His career resurrected in Arizona, he has piled on the numbers and touchdowns with the help of the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Bolden and Steve Breaston. A rejuvenated running game with seldom season used Edgerrin James, and a suprising, uplifted D that has been persecuting everyone they faced for the past 4 weeks, shows the Cards have a real shot.

There is an old addage that great offense wins games, and great defenses win championships. That is a very true statement, but I can't get past how the Cardinal D has come together. That, with the veteran leadership of Warner, and the running desire of Edge, will bring a Super Bowl Championship to Arizona.

In fact, I think there's a chance it won't even be close.

We'll know Sunday.

Sorry this will have to be put off another week. I've been swamped lately and wanted to put together the album graphics as well.

God Bless
