As a guy that was "born and raised in South Detroit," I've never had the chance to be a fan of my NFL franchise. This season didn't make it any easier. But there is something I do root for, and that's NFL players that once donned the Maize and Blue. So congrats to the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers for advancing to the Super Bowl tonight. Also, on behalf of we the Wolverine nation, a collective "your welcome" to each of you...precluding your obvious thanks for Arizona Cardinal wide receiver and punt/kick returner Steve Breaston, and anchors of the Steeler defense, linebackers Larry Foote and LaMarr Woodley. Of note, LaMarr had seven tackles and two sacks in Pittsburgh's dispatching of the Ravens.
Good luck to each of our Michigan alums in the big game. Here's hoping one of you get to join Desmond Howard and Tom Brady (twice) as MVPs of the Super Bowl.
