*It's a wild night in Seattle!*

Those Steelers keep surprising me. Should be a very competitive Super Bowl.

There's no doubt that the Steelers are great. They are a powerhouse, and they've added variety to their onslaught. Plus, conventional wisdom has said that any team from the AFC would beat any team from the NFC in the Superbowl this year. We're going to find out if that's true since the AFC’s 6-seed is favored over the 1-seed NFC team. (Has that ever happened before?!) We like it that way – it’s good to be underdogs.

The Steelers and the Seahawks each won their games yesterday with 34 points total – each won convincingly – each won with balanced play (Seahawks fans were pleasantly surprised by the improvement on special teams). Both teams have proven critics and pundits wrong. The Steelers had to beat the 1, 2, and 3 seeds in the AFC on the road. The Seahawks had to beat the hottest teams in the NFC, riding the most momentum.
