In case you’ve been living under a rock the Superbowl is this Sunday and the Pittsburgh Steelers and  Green Bay Packers will be playing between Budweiser Commercials.  I’m a Steeler fan so pretty biased about the outcome of the game and a bit of the coverage that has been going on, but to get you warmed up here is a link to one of the best commercials I’ve seen in years and it will premier during the game, I think every Star Wars fan and everyone with a 4-year-old boy will love this commercial so I have a feeling my friend Audrey’s going to really like this:

Now on to the serious thing, the football.  I think the two most deserving and best teams in the NFL are squaring off this week, I could have made a similar argument for the Ravens representing the AFC, but not the Jets, little Markie Sanchez needs to get some big boy pants before that is going to work out.

All the hype is almost over but one of the one story that I think has been worth the column space in the newspapers and blogs has been what both of these teams have over come.  Both of these teams due to injuries, suspensions, etc…have had a significant number of second string players and rookies stepping up to make these Superbowl runs possible.  Here are a couple of  links to articles that lay out all of the changes these teams have gone through:

The Packers

The Steelers

Now how do two teams get to this point in the season with all of these injuries and changes, simple, good coaching, no make that great coaching.  So when the votes were counted for coach of the year which of these fine gentlemen won, neither one, as a matter of fact neither coach got a single vote and that is pretty damn depressing.
