America's Team

  It's been 24 hours since Super Bowl XLV was played.  In this game you had historic pro football teams playing against each other.  6 time Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers vs. 3 time Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers.
   The Packer won the first two Super Bowls ever played then another with future hall of fame texter Brett Favre.  The Pittsburgh Steelers have won 6 Super Bowls, with 4 of them being in 6 years.  The Steelers were the TEAM of the 70's.
    Now I've lived in the midwest pretty much my whole life.  When you live in the midwest, you have a handful of teams you can follow.  Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and the Green Bay Packers.  Personally I follow the Chiefs and kind of observe the rest when I can.  
   My rant today is about all the people who I know and work with that wanted to root for the Steelers.  How in the hell can you do that?  Most of them don't even know where Pittsburgh even is!  How can you people be "big" Steelers fans?  I know you've watched them on tv and such but have you really watched them?  When in a certain region, root for the local team!!
    How in the hell can you support something you've never been around?  That's like a dude from Miami rooting for the San Diego Chargers.  Just doesn't work!  Now off of my rant.  This was a great game to watch.  You had excitement from both teams.  You had drama from both teams.  Then in the end, the right team won.  Nice victory to the Green Bay Packers.  Just make sure next year the "Black Eyed Peas" don't perform again!
