I'm sure a lot of you are probably at some kind of Super Bowl party.  Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is the day in which the most parties are thrown in the country?  Yes - even more than on New Year's Eve.  Who woulda thunk it?

For those of you who are around, be sure to drop by and share some thoughts - whether it's before the game, during the game, or after it.

Real quick, here's my take on this game.  I think it's going to be a lot closer than many of the "experts" think.  And it should be a very entertaining game to watch because of each team's different and distinctive styles of play.  The quarterback position is what intrigues me most, though, about this game.  You got two QBs, each with their own styles of play.  Kurt Warner is an amazing pocket passer.  Ben Roethlisberger is a big guy who has a strong arm and is mobile - a player who likes making big plays out of broken plays.  And each already have one Super Bowl ring - though Big Ben's performance was the worst Super Bowl performance by a QB in history.

I'm not going to make a pick.  But I will say that I think it's going to be close and I'm definitely pulling for the Cardinals.  I've always liked Kurt Warner and my thinking is that a 2nd Super Bowl ring gets him into Canton - where he rightfully belongs.

Enjoy the game, everyone!
