Obligatory Super Bowl post: Go Steelers!

This is not only because Troy Polamalu has great hair and Hines Ward has a great smile.

It's also because the Pittsburgh team has an owner who campaigned for a black Democrat. Those rich guys are usually Republicans -- but apparently not Dan Rooney.

Back when then-Sen. Barack Obama was waging an uphill battle for Pennsylvania's Democrats in the party presidential primaries there, Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, stepped up to the plate - uh, no, that's mixing our runaway, unblocked sportaphors - lined up -- much better -- for Obama.

The Swamp

Go Steelers!

UPDATE: Now that was one of the most absorbing football games I've seen in a long time. Way to go Big Ben, Santonio Holmes, James Harrison, the whole lot of of them.

but fitzgerald's hair is much prettier! It was a fun game to watch. And the cardinals almost got it! Go chargers!

Not only is Fitzgerald's hair prettier, his skilz are astonishing!

Still, like Jan, I was rooting for Pittsburgh. Best Superbowl game since the 49ers used to rule.

Those were the days. What a game! I was pulling for the Cardinals myself, out of sheer underdog-ism.
