STEELERS WIN SUPERBOWL X-TRA LARGE DETROIT - Mick Jagger moved up and down the field at halftime more easily than the Pittsburgh offense did for most of the game. In the end, though, Jerome Bettis, the Steelers and their thousands of rowdy fans wound up the big winners on Super Bowl Sunday. Save for a few big plays that changed the game, style points were hard to come by on America's annual football holiday. But to Pittsburgh, the 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks was beautiful _ a gritty grind of a game that included just enough flair to transform a blue-collar team playing in a blue-collar city into champions.
In a stadium brimming with thousands of Pittsburgh fans waving Terrible Towels, the Steelers finally captured their fifth title, that "One for the Thumb" they've been chasing since 1980.
"It's almost unreal right now," coach Bill Cowher said.

They lost and had it given to them, sad day for the NFL as a whole.
I must disagree. The score did not reflect how close the game was. The Steelers won a great victory, it was an entertaining game for football fans across the country. The Seahawks deserved to be in the big game, but the best team won. In the works of Stan Lee....'Nuff Said.
Oh yes, you're right. Let me dab my eyes with my Terrible Towel.
Take a look at any number of past SBs, including the ones the Packers won. Low-scoring and otherwise uneventful.
HERE WE GO STEELERS!
Congratulations to the Steelers from a harcore Indianapolis fan. They earned it.
The "Super" Bowl started off really poor with the "national anthem" fiasco and it just kind of tapered off from there.
You, sir, are a gentleman.
I don't think the officiating was as bad as you think it was. Some bad calls on both sides (but then again, what game doesn't have its bad call or two?). All in all, the Seahawks may have played better statistically...but when it actually counted, they didn't play well enough.
i agree, as a lady i graciously accept your kudos, good form great class
What happened with the National Anthem? I wasn't home in time to catch it.
Good. The Seahawks remind me of the Packers. I don't like the Packers.
I was cheering the Seahawks, but the Steelers mastered them. Awesome job. The halftime show surprised me... I know most people disliked it, but dang it... I wanna look HALF as good as Mick when I'm his age.
Oh, and he sang something.
What were the bad calles against pit? I knew seattle had a TD taken away, Pit got a TD given to them, Seattle passed to the 1 yrd line for 1st down and that was taken away from them. A very strange penalty against Hasselbeck for tackling low? no idea what that was.
Good, they don't like you either.
