Super Bowl XLV, Packers Or Steelers: Who Are You Rooting For, Patriots Fans?

New, 1 comment

The Super Bowl is just one of those things where it seems like everyone needs to take sides. Recently, that's been fairly easy for Patriots fans. In two of the last four, the Colts were involved. Not really a difficult decision to make. For Super Bowl XLII--well, let's not go there. And then there was Super Bowl XLIII, Cardinals vs. Steelers...

Depending on who you ask, it seems like that choice should have been just as easy.

The arguments are certainly easy to make. Roethelisberger's reputation, Raji's local connections, and just generally the feeling of Green Bay as the fun-loving bunch of idiots (I use that term with the affection it entailed for the 2003 Red Sox) and Pittsburgh as the angry hulking monster team here to ruin their party.

But I must admit a bias. Surrounded as I am by Cheeseheads (I attend the University of Wisconsin), maybe I'm just caught up in the local love. Am I missing out on the softer side of the Steelers? How is Pittsburgh really viewed by the average New Englander?

So what say you, Patriots fans?
