“Steel-toed” Touchdown Record-Breaking Sixth Lombardi Trophy for the Steelers
Tampa FL, (February 2009) - Super Bowl history was made in our very own backyard this year—Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. It was the Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Arizona Cardinals and the game couldn’t have been more exciting. The Steelers were ahead for nearly the entire game. They were the seasoned pros, this game being the team’s seventh trip to the Super Bowl; coupled with their reputation for “steel-clad” defense made them the favored winners. The Cardinals were clearly the underdogs for a majority of the game, but things changed in the fourth quarter and it seemed as if they wouldn’t be going home empty-handed.
