I think Al Michaels has done a fabulous job all these years. And how can you not love John Madden's scribbling on the monitor explaining all the cuts and tackles and stuff most of these knuckle heads (Dennis) know shit about. Times are changing and I don't like where they're heading. I miss ABC's wide world of sports too. That was a cool program. I became intriqued about sports I never knew existed. Call me old fashion but I think ABC did it right for a lot of years, why change it?

interesting question melcare69 about who would watch the SB again. I think every cry baby, particularly the one's who claimed neither team as there own fav, ought to see it again and this time pay attention to the fact that the Steelers came prepared to play and deserve credit for what they fairly accomplished to outplay the Seahawks.

We got 3 maybe 4 channels back in the day and watching MASH was a staple in our home. Even today, my clicker stops at a MASH re-run even if the episode is half over. It was that good.

saw another replay of the holding call on ESPN today. sure looked like an obvious grab around the neck sliding down to an obvious purchase of the shoulder pad and jersey. I don't know of a single ref in watching that same play at full speed that would have called it anything differently. Matter of fact, with the exception of the bogus low block call to Hasselback, every other call was made within the confines of the rule book and credit officials who have to deal with this shit slinging after every game. This has been a story book 8 weeks or so for the doubted Steelers that didn't end as perfect as we Steeler fans would have wanted.But long live the Rooney family, coach Cowher and all the other great things in this teams 73 year legacy. Let's face it, the Pirates will never make the post season again, they're about to throw the Pens out of the city so let us Steal Town natives enjoy this year cause I know we've earned it.

dbt 302, your comments are right on, particularly your last sentence. The Steelers made enough big plays to win. As a lifelong Steeler fan myself, I've criticized my own team for not using the big play. They took a huge risk on the gadget play and capitalized on it. Ben was throwing rocks most of the day but for a 2 yr. kid in the big dance he showed enough intellect to stay behind the LOS on the pass to Ward and he showed some gnads to run the ball on several occasions himself. The ball did cross the plane while he was at his highest point in the air and that's that.
