Didn’t Follow too Many Games

The 2015 – 2016 football season was a busy year for me with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, some Girl Scout stuff, and bowling.  I watched three games this year and missed the season ending game against the Broncos.  A little bummed they didn’t make it to the AFC Championship this year, but I was not emotionally invested in the season.

Found some cool Steelers themed wallpaper on the webs.

Super Bowl XLV

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers on winning Super Bowl XLV.  It was a gut-wrenching game for me.  Green Bay took advantage of the three turnovers, one ranback for a touchdown.

We enjoyed the game at a neighbors house.  Plenty of drinks, pepperoni rolls, buffalo chicken bites, buffalo cheese dip, and fondue dessert.  The kids played nicely in the basement and watched the half time show performed by the Black Eyed Peas.  We enjoyed the show and the Doritos commercials.

I guess I’ll follow hockey (Pittsburgh Penguins currently in second place one game behind the Philadelphia Flyers)  till the end of the season and wait for pre-season in August.

Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers on winning the AFC Championship Game!!  This is the sixth time the Steelers have won the AFC title at Home and this will be the eighth time the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl.  I have already ordered my AFC Championship cap and will be getting ready for the big game on February 6th.

I would also like to say congratulations to the Green Bay Packers.  I don’t follow the Packers too much, but I know several folks in Delaware who are loyal Packers fans and will be rooting for a packers win.  I think the Steelers fans will be louder.  I wonder, will be see more Terrible Towels waving or Cheeseheads.

Here is a song from a Tweet that came across my screen from Steelersaddicts.com.  Enjoy!

Steelers Move onto AFC Championship

Last night The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 31-24 and advance to the AFC Championship game. This is the fifth time the Steelers play for an AFC Championship game in the last ten years.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 9-2 in his career against the Baltimore Ravens.

Today I will be cheering for the New York Jets to beat the New England Patriots. With a Jets win, the AFC Championship game will be played at Heinz Field.

The last Steelers game I attended was the AFC Championship against the Ravens on January 18th 2009. I’ll have to see if I can get tickets if the Jets win.

Joe Flacco was sacked four times in the second half and the Steelers held the Ravens to only three points after halftime.

Steelers Playoff Scenarios

Here are the Steelers Playoff scenarios as provided by the NFL:

  1. Steelers win + Texans loss or tie + New York Jets loss or tie
  2. Steelers win + Texans loss or tie + Ravens loss or tie
  3. Steelers win + New York Jets loss or tie + Ravens loss or tie + Broncos loss or tie

Hopefully the Steelers will make it to the playoffs this year.  If the Steelers fail to make the playoffs or are eliminated I need to deiced which team I want to back for the Super Bowl.
