Mr. Rodgers’ Neighborhood

And the Cheeseheads are ecstatic.

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers for winning their first Super Bowl in fourteen years with a 31-25 victory over the Pitttsburgh Steelers.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named Super Bowl XLV MVP as he threw three touchdowns and passed for over 300 yards. Lambeau Field is now Mr. Rodgers' Neighborhood. I'm sure the Packers faithful are also asking, "Brett Who?"

Yet I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the performance of the Steelers. Despite being down 21-3 with 2:24 in the 2nd quarter, the Steelers fought back and were in the game until its final minute. They have nothing for which to be ashamed.

Of course, a lot of people watch the game for the commercials. My favorite? The Stella Artois commercial with Adrien Brody as a crooner. It had a European film noir art house quality to it.
