The Ladies … Super Bowl Party Preview, or Preview Party, Your Choice

I hope the game is more exciting than this logo.

We are now a little over 48 hours away from the culmination of the entire 2008-09 NFL season.  Just like the World Series, this championship features a team making its unlikely first appearance in the big game and … a team from Pennsylvania.  Plus they are playing it in Tampa.  It’s certainly not the first time a city has hosted both a World Series and a Super Bowl, but it may be the first time a city outside of California has done it. So there’s your (unverified) Super Bowl fact of the day.

As this is a sports blog, written by sports fans, most of us Ladies have plans to watch the game. Some of us are neutral, some of us have a particular team, some of us are just obsessed with Kurt Warner, but we’ll all be parked in front of a television somewhere at game time.  Further details after the jump, but first:

Hump Day Hottie: Larry Fitzgerald

So the Cardinals being in the NFC Championship game is a surprised huh? And hosting the game as well. Frankly, it’s just a little too much to take. I mean, these are the Arizona Cardinals here. For the entirety of my life they’ve been hapless and pathetic. Now they’re one game away from the Super Bowl. It’s almost a little too much.

You know who isn’t too much though? Larry Fitzgerald. I remember him at Pitt and was kind of upset for him when he got drafted by the football Cardinals. I thought he would surely be traded because Arizona just didn’t do pro football well. That just goes to show you what I know.

So, ahead of the championship game this weekend, let’s take a look at the hottie down in the desert.

Yes, I like the team photo. Sue me.
