You root for the Packers in this Super Bowl because if the Steelers left Pittsburgh there would still be the Penguins, who won the Stanley Cup in 2009, and the Pirates. True, they stink, but Albert Pujols visits all the time. If the Packers left, Green Bay's major attraction would be the L.H. Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve. But some people would still take Packerland Drive to get there.
That's ESPN's Rick Reilly who, at least it seems to me, is trying to make the Packers out to be the little guy in the classic Super Bowl match-up this Sunday. Keep in mind that the Steelers have won 6 championships while the Packers have won 12. Sure, the Steelers have won 6 Super Bowls, the Packers 3. Does the fact that we call the championship game a "Super Bowl" lessen the importance of the league championship game that was played without this name?
With all due respect to my Packer-loving friends, if the Steelers happen to win this Sunday, I'll be happy and that happiness won't be tempered by a feeling that Goliath beat David.
