The Immaculate Connection

Not to digress from my usual posts, but me and everyone else in western Pennsylvania are celebrating the Steelers' triumph over the Arizona Cardinals. The 27-23 victory was a true nail biter in the 4th quarter but was saved by Santonio Holmes amazing end zone reception. He had three Cardinals on him yet made the catch. Amazing! Holmes was recognized as MVP.

I had the opportunity to meet Dan and Jim Rooney, owners of the Steelers, this past October. They must be incredibly proud to be the only NFL team to win six Superbowls. It can be considered an historic night for sports fans. In 2006, we got one for the thumb. Now, we got six for kicks. Go Steelers!


Holmes makes his game-saving touchdown.
