Well, while external sources point to this post being a day late, my internal clock says it’s all good. Yesterday was after all a holiday, so it’s legit right?
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t an official holiday but Super Bowl Sunday is certainly a rather important day for even the casual football (or tv ad) fan. The game itself was one that I was particularly interested in the winner of, so I stayed mostly partial throughout (except for those Black and Yellow chants aimed at all my Packer fan friends of course). And in the end I was perfectly okay with a Packer victory.
The only thing I’m not particularly sure of was Aaron Rodgers getting the MVP. Oh yes, he had a great game, but as far as individual performances, I thought maybe one of the linebackers (Clay Matthews III?) would have been better. Or Nick Collins had he not been injured, Jordy Nelson if you take out the drops. A-Rodge had a good game for about 20 minutes, the other 40 were forgettable.
At any rate, congrats to Green Bay for winning, and congrats to the Steelers for putting up a late fight, sadly you buried yourself early with the turnovers Ben. Props to Rashard Mendenhall, who proved once again that he can play under pressure, tough luck about the fumble, but he did well outside that.
Back next week with your regularly scheduled programming.
