Super Bowl Bound!
January 21, 2013 - Kristy MacKaben
I almost didn't write this post. But, I figured, there's not much you Steelers fans can do to me now that I'm living in Chicagoland. I am aware of your animosity towards my all-time favorite team: the Ravens. The feeling is mutual. We are sworn enemies I know that. We lived in Altoona for seven years. As an outsider and Baltimore native, it was excruciating living in Steeler country during football season. You guys go all out and you usually beat us! Of the seven years we lived in Altoona, the Steelers made it to the Super Bowl three times!! That is crazy I tell you. Can you imagine how nauseating it was to turn on the radio and hear "Black and Yellow. Black and Yellow." Not fun for a Ravens fan. So, it is with much enthusiasm that I inform you that the Ravens are going to the Super Bowl! Get a load of another crazy fact. The 49ers are going to the Super Bowl too. A California native, Scott loves his 49ers. Here's another unbelievable happening. Scott and I are actually going to the Super Bowl in New Orleans! Around Christmas time, before we even knew the fate of our beloved teams, Scott found out he earned a trip to the Super Bowl. Obviously we were elated, but we never in a million years imagined our two favorite teams would be dueling in the Big Game and we'd get to watch in person. (We actually thought our teams didn't have a chance to make it all the way.) Last night was absolute overjoyment in our house. We screamed, we laughed, we got a little nervous, and I shed a couple tears (of joy). Even Julie and Johnny, decked out in jerseys for both teams, jumped up and down as we realized our teams were heading to New Orleans. I don't expect my Altoona friends to be happy for us, but just had to share our unbelievably crazy news! What luck, right?
