@eoe,
Yup, this "catch" is going to be the one that will surpass the Montana-Clark superbowl catch. Holmes was fantastic!

So that's what all the shouts from all directions in my apartment complex were all about.

The last couple hours here have sounded like bulls staking out their territories during rutting season.

@cicerone imposter,
Excellent game. One of the best ever. It wsnt a blowout, or a sleeper. Coulda gone either way until the end.
The CArds got a late start, caught up, took the lead, and then get dashed by that great chuck and catch.

They were serving Rothles -burgers at the party .

@cicerone imposter,
If the game went on for another hour would the STeelers have dominated convincingly? Or would the Cards just keep squeakingg up and by?

Super Bowls normally are sleepers for some reason. I've hated many of them. But we had a terrific one on Sunday...and that makes two in a row as far as I am concerned.

Two terrific games...played right up to the last few seconds.

Doesn't get any better than this!

@farmerman,
Best ever? Really? How many Super Bowls have you seen?

That a worthless 9-7 Cardinal team could hand this game on a silver penalty platter to the Steelers AND STILL almost win is PITIFUL!

This should have been a Steelers blowout but instead it was a Steelers second half Puppy Bowl.

@BigTexN,
BTN, I disagree; it was one of the best super bowls in history. That the Steelers were favored is understandable, but the Cardinals did a yeoman's job of competing with one of the best in the NFL. Even super teams makes mistakes during regular play and during the big one. That's what sports is all about.

@BigTexN,
I dont wtch blowouts, no fun watching.
The lesson you need to understand is that once the teams make it to the playoffs, anything could happen. Yesterdays game was a reverse of the Eagles /Cards game of 2 weeks ago. The EAgles shoulda won the same way they did duirng the regular season.

I stand by my original statement. This was (IMO) the best Superbowl for pure entertainment . Maybe you are way more fooball sophisticated than I.
You sound like someone who got screwed on the spread.

All that excitement, and porn too!

For some people anyway...

Janet MIA, but Porn Still Pops Up in Super Bowl

Nipplegate had nothing on Super Bowl XLIII.

As if the unexpected sight of Bruce Springsteen's crotch hurtling toward their screens wasn't enough of a shocker (and don't even mention that last-second touchdown catch), some Tucson-area pigskin watchers had their sensibilities extra offended last night when live coverage of the big game was interrupted by a 30-second burst of porn.

The clip, transmitted to roughly 80,000 Comcast customers, showed a woman unzipping a man's pants, followed by some in-your-face full frontal male nudity.

Here's hoping viewers remembered to remove their 3-D glasses.

Hummm...any chance we are dealing with a Dallas Cowgirls fan here???

@kickycan,
Seems to be a theme there.

Perhaps they're trying to attract more female viewers?

Maybe the game player was James Harrison's 100-yard reception TD; first time in a super bowl.

@cicerone imposter,
Interception, not reception.

I was a little grumpy about that because the previous longest play in a Super Bowl was Desmond Howard's 99-yard (I think) kickoff return in 1997...
