I love my Steelers, but I don't hate the Arizona Cardinals. In fact, if they weren't playing the Steelers in the Super Bowl, I'd be rooting for the Cardinals, due to my respect for Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm, both ex-Pittsburgh assistant coaches. In fact, the finalists for the Pittsburgh coaching job opened after Bill Cowher retired were Whisenhunt, Grimm, and Mike Tomlin, the outsider eventually hired. Despite some hard feelings among those not chosen, the fact that everyone is meeting in Tampa in two weeks shows that the Steelers made a good choice, and that Arizona did as well.

Not everyone has the same feelings toward the Cardinals though. Did you ever hear of the Pottsville Maroons? If not, read on: Official Site of the Pottsville Maroons.

There remains some bad feeling among in the eastern part of Pennsylvania over the way that the NFL championship was stolen from their team. Indeed, one can build a scenario in which the Maroons remained in business, and in the NFL, had things gone otherwise; after all, the Green Bay Packers continue to thrive in a very small market. Pottsville did not have to go the way of Canton, Massilon or Duluth.
