Two years after being hired away from the Vikings, Mike Tomlin has led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl title. And what an amazing game it was…this is the second year in a row we’ve been treated to a twisty, turny, unbelievably thrilling championship tilt. For a second, it looked like another man with Vikings connections, Larry Fitzgerald (he used to be our ball-boy, as we were reminded about four thousand times in the last two weeks) was going to be the hero: Kurt Warner hit him over the middle and in a flash he was behind the defense, scoring what was at the time a late go-ahead touchdown for Arizona. But Ben Roethlisberger put on his hero shoes and hooked-up with Santonio Holmes for a (very Cris Carter-like) tiptoe touchdown strike to win it. The Steelers have now won six Super Bowls. And the Vikings look like even bigger idiots for choosing Brad Childress over Tomlin.
Congrats to Mike Tomlin and the Steelers, Super Bowl Champs
