Super Bowl XLV
Before Super Bowl XLV, we wrote about Green Bay Packers fan Daniel Smith, who ponied up Stubhub prices for Super Bowl tickets for himself, his children and their significant others only to find out the NFL wouldn’t let his daughter bring her infant son into the game without a ticket.
You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?
It all gets shipped to some third-world country.
While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Jordy Nelson will grace the cover of the new issue of Sports Illustrated. That’s what happens when you win the Super Bowl.
As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the north and south sides in green and gold and the east […]
It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated.

After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice for our game plan, so we’re ready to go. The one thing you want to […]
Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted he had a 75 percent chance of playing Sunday. He didn’t practice on Friday, which […]
