In this day and age, the sports media can be quite thirsty about even the simplest little issue, and it doesn’t help that every knucklehead on Earth gets to weigh-in with the likes of Twitter. But for the football purists who like to watch some real “rock’em sock’em head knock‘em football” (as my high school defensive coach Cunningham used to say…and which I loved to play), they could not have asked for a better match-up than the Green Bay Packers line up against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I do believe that I suggested that the Steelers would be one of the teams lining up for this gridiron war, and I also believe that the other team doesn’t really have a chance no matter who it is – which is quite contrary to what the Las Vegas betting line suggests. Incredibly, the Vegas line-makers initially determined that the Packers were slight favorites, though the two-week waiting period before the game will certainly allow for some movement on that professional prediction. The Steelers are entering their third Super Bowl in six years. In my humble opinion, that means a whole lot.
