Super Bowl XLIV (aka. XLI's revenge)

Most of you know me as a minimal football fan. If you know me at all, though, you know how much a Chicagoan I am. Well, that latter being the case and with perhaps a bit of Al Capone taste for retribuation in my blood, Super Bowl XLIV was exciting for me. I have no reserve about admitting it.

In 2007, Indianapolis' bastard team the Colts won Super Bowl XLI in Miami. They beat my favorite team, my Chicago Bears.

This year, the Super Bowl returned to Miami. The Colts too returned. The New Orleans Saints, a team I have had very high respect for in the years since hurricane Katrina, gave them a run and finished them up on a 74-yard interception return.

Ah. Revenge is sweet.
