Super Bowl XLV

I have watched enough Super Bowl games to know a few things: Budweiser will deliver a testosterone satisfying commercial; the half time show will almost always be the topic of useless controversy [regardless of how spectacular the artist(s)]; and, the best team will emerge winners.

Green Bay, All the Way! was the slogan I adopted when the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears to win the National Football Conference (NFC). And, I pretty much stuck with that slogan when the Packers scored three touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first half of the Super Bowl XLV game.

By the forth quarter, defensively, the Steelers were no match for the Packers. Then, within the last two minutes of the game, it was clear that the Packers were on their way to becoming Super Bowl XLV champions! Could it be that the Steelers just didn’t bring their A game? Or, was the game control by a higher force?

Charged with two sexual assaults, Steelers’ quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger received a four game suspension, a slap on the wrist, and a media sweep-under-the-rug of two women’s traumatic and violating experience—after both charges were dropped.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a believer in a higher force. Sorry Roethlisberger, God don’t like ugly! Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers!

Seems to me that a stiffer punishment would have been a Steelers' last place finish, a miserable season for Ben and the team missing the playoffs. While I do believe in a higher force, I think Ben's comeuppance is yet to come.
