Super Bowl Sunday-Still pulling for the Huskers!

For starters, I'm a Denver Broncos fan.  There, that's out of the way.

That being said, one might think I've little inerest in today's game -- WRONG!

I'm pulling for the Saints -- and by a two-to-one margin.  You see, New Orleans has TWO Huskers (Scott Shanle and Carl Nicks, both starters) compared to the Colts' one (backup LB and special teams ace Cody Glenn). 

Am I wrong for defining my allegiances this way??  Sorry, can't help it.  My passion for Nebraska football will not allow me to be any other way. 

So, GO SAINTS GO!!   Who Dat?!?!?!   and all that stuff....and although I'm in a can't lose (or win, for that matter) situation, it would be cooler for 2 'Skers to get rings rather than one......twice as cool, actually!

Have fun and forever GO BIG RED!!!

Top 5 Super Bowls

Here we go!!!  My rankings plus a few reasons why

1 - Super Bowl III - NY Jets 16 - Baltimore Colts 7 -- It isn't Namath's guarantee as much as the significance of the AFL's win

2 - Super Bowl XLII - NY Giants 17 - New England Patriots 14 -- Down go the undefeated Patriots - and Manning to Tyree is, in my opinion, the single most amazing play in Super Bowl History

3 - Super Bowl XXIII - SF 49ers 20 - Cincinnati Bengals 16 --Montana to Taylor...what else needs to be said?

4 - Super Bowl XXXIV - St Louis Rams 23 - Tennessee Titans 16 -- McNair to Dyson comes up a yard short - plus Kurt Warner and the Rams earn respect

5 - Super Bowl XIII - Pittsburgh Steelers 35 - Dallas Cowboys 31 -- Everyone remembers poor Jackie Smith's drop in the end zone - but Bradshaw also threw 4 TDs - and Staubach led the Cowboys on two late TD drives to make it close, one after an onside kick recovery!
