Superbowl XLIII (43) has turned out to be quite the exciting game as the Arizona Cardinals came back in the forth quarter to take the lead. (23-20) Pittsburgh used the last 2 minutes to mount a last stand and marched up the field just hoping to make it into field goal range in order to tie the game. A wild completion to Santonio Holmes (Ohio State) ends up making it to a 1st and goal situation with only 49 seconds. Then with 30 seconds to go, a Pittsburgh’s QB Ben Roethlisberger (’04 MiamiU of Ohio — my alma mater) made a terrific corner of the endzone TD pass to Holmes again and the extra point to bring the final score 27-23.
Well done gridiron superstars — can’t ask for much more from a Superbowl!
