Cards flirt with history but Steelers take crown

In a Super Bowl that came down to the last five seconds of regulation, the Pittsburgh Steelers became the first franchise in NFL history to win six Super Bowls since the event was minted during the 1960s.

Despite a gallant effort by the Cards, with highlight after highlight by veteran QB Kurt Warner and acrobatic WR Larry Fitzgerald, not to mention a tenacious ensemble effort by the Arizona D, the Cardinals were denied destiny after a circus catch by steady handed Pittsburgh WR Santonio Holmes in the closing minute of the match-up.

Though the saying goes that " one remembers who lost...," Super Bowl LXII may be one of the best fought in the history of the game and perhaps the sport. For more details about this contest of gridiron greats, go to:
