They come about one minute ahead of schedule.
The Superbowl is being watched with a tad more intensity than usual at home this year. Reprieve from a whole week's worth of homework is on the line if the Steelers win. C's teacher is a big fan. So guess who we're rooting for. All that intense watching and praying seems to have paid off.
Cardinals are within inches of a touchdown. Harrison for the Steelers intercepts Warner's pass and starts running to the other end. He, whose sole purpose on the field is to hit the living daylights out of the opposing team - and is built for that job - runs the full length of the field and scores a touchdown, and promptly collapses under the sheer weight of that effort. Turns out he was a bit winded but all right. It is always a delightful sight to watch defenders do the offence's work. Especially joyful when he does the ballet in full combat gear to escape the desperate clutches of an offence that suddenly finds itself defending. Somewhat like the tailender scoring a century on the last day of a cricket match to force a draw just as the other side thought it had victory all sewn up.
