Packers beat the Steelers 31-25 !
What a exhilarating Super Bowl!
The Green Bay Packers met the Pittsburgh Steelers in a nail chomping, hair pulling battle for the Lombardi Trophy!
It seemed to start like a ping-pong game back and forth between two equally great teams, with each team keeping the other from their goal line. The Packers quickly changed that with two touchdowns and the real battle began. The Steelers were able to squeak out a field goal before half time to knock the goose egg off of their side of the score board.
The second half was a totally different game! Both sides scratching and fighting to add another score. Green Bay had lost 3 important players to injuries just before half time. Donald Driver and Charles Woodsons presence were noticeably missed off the filed.
Both teams played admirably and kept the score tight the whole 2nd half. These type of games keep fans and players on the edge of their seats. I prefer to watch a game that is for a World Championship Title to be of equal caliber. It shows the best of the best, players are called upon to show case their skills and work as a team. Some fans may of been sad by a loss, but were not disappointed by a massacre.

Yes, I am happy that the Packers are bringing Vince home once again. But I need to mention that the Steelers did not make it easy. There were some key interceptions that were utilized into touch-downs, but Pittsburgh did not give up without a good fight. The Steelers were very worthy opponents.You can find all the stats and play by play analysis all over the net. I am happy just to share my happiness for the Green and Gold, colors of Titletown, U.S.A.
These are a few of my favorite images from the celebration at winning Super Bowl XLV. They show case that family is still an important part of American spirit, in sports as well as everyday life.
