Now that the Cardinals have FINALLY made it to a conference championship game obviously with a win today they'll be making their first trip to the Super Bowl. In addition to the Cardinals the Browns, Texans, Jaguars, Lions, and Saints have never played in the big game. Of these other five teams which one do you folks believe are the closest to breaking through that Super Bowl celing?

I dunno exactly why, but I think the Houston Texans will be in the playoffs next year and make it to the AFC Championship game before the others.

The NFL has absolutely no respect for the fans who come to see these games live and little more for those of us who have to watch on television. That the Pittsburgh game, which could have been played in sunshine, or daylight at least, will be played at night when it is 20 degrees colder is obscene. It's 12:30 here on the east coast, and my body is ready for football to start a half hour from now. Are there really going to be enough more people who are going to watch at these unusual hours to disrupt the body rhythms of loyal fans?

Cold and snowy here in Pittsburgh today. Its supposed to be around 20 degrees w/light snow (one to three more inches expected). Wind shouldn’t be an issue. Just thought I would share...

Terrible Towels are currently at rest and ready to strike.

Abbeville Conservative reporting in for the Ravens. I don't expect us to win today as we are a banged up and worn out team BUT that's why they play the games.

GO RAVENS!!!

As I pointed out on another thread for all the undecided fans not sure which team to pull for:

Pittsburgh Steelers Owner Rooney and Head Coach Mike Tomlin were pro Obama/Biden.

Baltimore Ravens Owner Steve Biscotti and Head Coach John Harbaugh were pro McCain/Palin.

Sheriff [Arpaio]: Maricopa County inmates to watch Cards big game

About ten thousand Maricopa County jail inmates will get a chance to cheer on the Arizona Cardinals during Sunday’s NFC Championship game against he Philadelphia Eagles.

The Sheriff, who normally allows inmates to watch the Weather Channel, CSPAN, and the Food Network, is allowing prisoners to tune into the face-off Sunday afternoon.

The Sheriff predicts the Cardinals will lose the game 24 to 14.

According to a press release, Arpaio said, “I always tell the truth, even when what I say may not make me the most popular guy around....In this case, I’ll be happy if I’m proved wrong.”
