    "The Immaculate Interception." reported by Post Gazette

    Harrison's run has a name ... a familiar one
    Sunday, February 01, 2009
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    TAMPA -- The Super Bowl halftime show had not even ended, and already linebacker James Harrison's phenomenal 100-yard touchdown to give the Steelers a 17-7 lead had a nickname.
    The Immaculate Interception.
    The were labeling it the greatest play in Super Bowl history, and one that rivals the Immaculate Reception of Franco Harris in a 1972 playoff victory by the Steelers.
    "Not even close,'' said Edwin Pope, the esteemed columnist of the Miami Herald who has covered all 43 Super Bowls.
    Harrison's 100-yard interception return for a touchdown on the last play of the first half may have represented a 14-point swing in the game.
    The Cardinals had a first down at the Steelers' one with 18 seconds left and were ready to either take the lead or tie the game.
    Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner, fearing a blitz, threw a quick pas toward Anquan Boldin on the left. Harrison instead dropped into coverage, stepped in front of the pass and ran down the right sideline for the longest play in Super Bowl history.
    Harrison escaped a few tackles before he was hit just before the goalline. He landed on top of Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and into the end zone. Officials reviewed the play and it stood up as a touchdown.

    2nd greatest play in our history, but not the best in Superbowl history.

    It was a great play, but James looked too good doing it to call it "immaculate".
