The Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl champions, now let that sink in for a minute. Title Town has now regained it’s true name, I am sure the people are still celebrating in Wisconsin today after the victory from last night. While the team spent a long time post game around the field celebrating with fans and just basking in the glory of winning the Super Bowl. Fans in Wisconsin were taking to streets and celebrating in their own fashion. While it is still unknown if cars got over turned or any couches burned, it was jubilation in the streets last night in Wisconsin.
The Packers started off the game with a calm and ease that seemed un-heard of from a first time team in their situation. While most fans thought this game was going to get ugly and be another Super Bowl blowout, there were a lot of people who kept saying that Pittsburgh will come back and make a game off it. Being a team with experience always is an advantage when it comes to crunch time during the game. The game could have easily been more lopsided if it weren’t for some untimely drops by receivers for the Packers. Aaron Rodgers was on target last night, and it is unfortunate that the drops kept him from having one of the best Super Bowl performances ever seen. Going in with a size-able lead at the half, most would think that this game would be iced in the 2nd half and there would be an early celebration in the stands.
But Pittsburgh came out in the 2nd half with an extra boost, and was able to make it a close game again through strong defense. But as with most people outside of Pittsburgh, everyone wanted to see Ben Roethlisberger fail, and he did at the most important time of the game. Green Bay did what has previously been undone by a 6th seed in the NFL playoffs, and that is win a championship. With 5 consecutive weeks of what were playoff football, the Packers kept winning and winning. All the experts wanted to say that the week off would benefit Pittsburgh and break Green Bay’s momentum. But that wasn’t the case, Green Bay played as good as they have played in the playoffs and won the game in the trenches. Aaron Rodgers did one thing last night that will cement his legacy in Green Bay forever, he won the game and locked down an MVP award on top of it. I am sure Packers fans everywhere are now saying that Aaron Rodgers is the best thing to happen to Green Bay since Bart Starr.
So while this Super Bowl was marred with bad weather, and the seating fiasco at the stadium, everyone who watched the game can say one thing. The game was every bit as good as anyone hoped it would be, and kept you interested for the whole time. Hopefully North Texas will have another chance to redeem itself with another Super Bowl, because other than the uncontrollable weather and a seating mishap, everything went well and most events went on as scheduled. Now every NFL fan has to look forward to see what will happen in this labor dispute. But if this is the last NFL game we see for a while, what a way to end it.
