The Green Bay Packers get to bring the Lombardi Trophy "home" to WI, after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 25 to 31 in the Super Bowl.
Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and snagged the Super Bowl MVP title last night to end Green Bay's 2010 season with a true "bang." Mason Crosby gave the team an additional three points with a 23-yard field goal and Nick Collins returned an interception 37-yards for a touchdown, both of which added to 31 points total that the Packers scored.
Ben Roethlisberger delivered three touchdowns, with one 2-point conversion, for the Steelers and Suisham kicked a 33-yarder through the uprights for three points (he also missed a 52-yard field goal attempt in the third quarter). But their 25 points were not enough to topple the Green Bay Packers.
The Black Eyed Peas took to the Super Bowl halftime stage and put down a truly memorable and flashy show. With black stage attire that had built-in lighting they delivered a moment of light and awe. With special guests guitarist Slash and Usher they worked their way through a medley of hits and kept the crowd going.
It was Christina Aguilera who delivered the lowlight of the game, though. Her performance of the National Anthem became somewhat of a disaster when she missed an entire line in the song. She completely forgot to sing "O'er the ramparts they watched were so gallantly streaming," and combined lines to form the new lyric, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last ..." only to trail off into something we couldn't understand.
If you watched the game for the commercials, and you happen to be a Justin Bieber fan, you should have been in hog heaven when you saw the Bieber, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne Best Buy ad.
