Had to wait a while before I could rewatch the game and write about it! :-)

Superbowl Sunday - the biggest game of the year
The way the season went - who thought we’d make it here?
It would be Steel Town vs. Title Town - storied franchises collide
Both teams have large fan bases extending world wide
Each team overcame a lot of injuries and kept winning anyway
The game should be a good one - we couldn’t wait for them to play
Six minutes in and Jordy Nelson put points on the board
Then Ben was picked and six more points were scored
On our next drive it looked like Ben hurt his knee
But then he ran for 18 yards and helped Suisham get us three
Green Bay punted and it would be our turn again
But soon would come another interception from Ben
It wouldn’t take long and the Packers added to their lead
Ward got the TD before halftime that we did so desperately need
The Packers opened the half but they would have to punt
This game was far from over - we were still in the hunt
The Steelers ran the ball all the way and in for the score
Momentum shifting our way now and their lead was cut to four
Our next drive was a field goal miss - that is never good
And Ben overthrew Wallace - we never thought he could
The 3rd quarter for the Packers didn’t go very well
But it was the 4th for the Steelers that would turn out to be hell
Rashard would fumble as it was just getting started
Looking back this is when we started feeling brokenhearted
The Packers would take the lead again to go up by eleven
We can never give up hope when we have # 7
He took us down the field and hit Wallace for a score
And then a pitch to Randle El and we added 2 points more
The Packers were able to get downfield and Mason Crosby kicks
A successful field goal so now they’re up by 6
Two minutes to go needing a score should be a happy ending
But it just wasn’t our day and our broken hearts are mending
Steeler Nation - don’t be sad - wear your colors with pride
Lots of good memories this season - it’s been a wonderful ride
Packers - you deserve it - you played some really good football
We still love our Steelers - you can’t win them all!
