Super Bowl XLIII
Let me just say first of all that I’m disappointed in the lack of a competitive attitude coming from the Dallas Cowboys this last season. They just couldn’t seem to get their crap together. But as the end of the NFL season rolled by this last weekend, I was glad to find that the Super Bowl had a huge underdog and turned out to be a great game.
Steelers and Cardinals…I was definitely gunnin’ for the Cards but Pittsburgh just seemed to pull it out at the end. However, I have to say that the victory is a little tainted to me. There were a few key plays that weren’t called correctly which would have favored the Cards.
1. Harrison, one of the key Steelers players should have been ejected for a personal foul where he was punching another player.
2. After the “game-winning” play, Santonio Holmes celebrated using the ball. That should have been an automatic 15 yard penalty against in favor of the Cardinals.
3. The final play was ruled a fumble when it was very obviously an incomplete pass. There was hardly a review.
Either way, Shift has a great party and lots of people came out. The food was good too. Hopefully Dallas will give us something to look forward to this next season.
