I was sitting on the couch last night watching some the recap of the media day's highlights and interviews when it finally sank in... the freakin' Cardinals are in the Super Bowl. For me this is just something that I've thought was impossible for at least the last 20 years. I am not a Cardinal fan at all. I just have a mutual respect for them out of the love for the game that I have. I also had the pleasure of serving in Iraq with late Pat Tillman. I follow the Cardinals kind of like my In-Laws. When something important happens I take notice, but most of the time I could care less. What a fool I was!
first of all it has opened my eyes to the legendary credo "That's why they play the games!" On paper anything can look perfect, but it is on the field where that perception of perfection can become reality. With that being said, kudos! to the Arizona Cardinals as an organization, team, and fan base on your first Super Bowl appearance! May it be everything you always dreamed it would be.
