NFL PICKS: Super Bowl XLIII

SUNDAY FEBRUARY 1, 2009

Pittsburgh Steelers (-5) vs. Arizona Cardinals in Tampa, FL


The story lines don't matter. The players do. Larry Fitzgerald is not 11 players on the field at all time. He's one. Troy Polamalu sometimes is like two. Ben isn't going to play weak this Super Bowl. The defense is going to play stronger. Kurt Warner is a great guy. But he's going to do a lot of lying on his back this game. Willie Parker may make a pass at his longest Super Bowl rush record. Hines Ward will be a factor. James Harrison will end the game with the MVP.


I know picking against my sleeper hasn't been good this post-season. But one thing has been constant in the playoffs. The Pittsburgh Steelers. And there is one constant in the world. One constant that is true no matter where and no matter when and that is that the world is Steeler Country. Baltimore was no different this year. Tampa will be rampant with Terrible Towels.


I mean come on .... Arizona is Steeler Country .....

Beijing is Steeler Country ....

Egypt and the Great Pyramids are Steeler Country ....



The Great Wall of China is Steeler Country ...


Air Bases in Iraq are Steeler Country ....

London England is Steeler Country ...

Mount St. Helens is Steeler Country ....

Punxatawney is Steeler Country and Phil is a Steeler Fan ....


Sydney, Australia is Steeler Country ....

The Marine Corp is Steeler Country ....

The White House is Steeler Country and the President is a Steeler fan .....


The Vatican is Steeler Country and the Pope has blessed the Terrible Towel ....


No matter where in the world you are you remain in Steeler Country. And like I said today in Tampa it will be no different. The Steelers win today. Steelers 27-7.
Steelers -5



Besides, Jesus loves the Steelers. The below picture is courtesy of our very own Irish Road from his days in Baghdad, Iraq.

Baghdad is Steeler Country!
