I spent Sunday in the office, so I only caught bits and pieces of the first three quarters before settling in for the fourth quarter.
So, I’ve spent some time today reading in full what the experts all think about the outcome of Pittsburgh’s 27-23 win over Arizona.
I didn’t think the game would be a classic going into it. And, for the very fast first three quarters it appeared to be a ho-hum Super Bowl.
However, the fourth quarter had all the ups and downs of a rollercoaster. It turned out to be a great finish — obviously one that will have fans talking about for a long time.
And the question all over the Internet — Was it the greatest game ever?
Not even close! It was a great fourth quarter of football if you like back-and-forth excitement. There were too many personal fouls and dumb mistakes you just aren’t suppose to make at this time of year. Harrison should have been booted out of the game for stomping on a Cardinal player.
In my mind, still the greatest game was the New York Jets beating Baltimore 16-7 after Joe Namath had predicted a Jets victory. That game made the Super Bowl what it is today. And Sunday’s game, unless you have a short memory, doesn’t even compare to the New York Giants’ win over New England last year.
