Superbowl XL Who are you rooting for?

I've decided it's time for a new poll. I'm voting for the Seahawks. They've never been to the Superbowl before, I'm impressed they made it! Living in Washington too, gotta support the home team. Though the commercials are why I'd really watch it...

Sorry, just realized I entered to close this poll in ten days, I meant to close in 20. Will one of you awesome mods change this for me? Thanks!

The Bus (Jerome Bettis) is a hometown (Detroit) guy, so I think most of Detroit has already adopted the Steelers for this one. Plus, is most likely his last game in the NFL, and he gets to have it be the Superbowl, in his hometown. Now if they can just win it...

(Detroit fans adopting a new team for the playoffs is nothing new, happens every year - getting this much agreement though, this is rare!)

Everyone expected the Seahawks to be in this position. No one expected the Steelers to be.

I think the Steel Curtain will reign supreme, putting aside the emotion involving Jerome "The Bus" Bettis.

Back to the emotion, what could be better? You're the number 6 seat, not expected to even make it to the Big Dance, and you plow through the top 3 seats with relative ease. You're back home in the northern "Big D", it's likely your playing the last game in the NFL, and of all the games it could be, it's the Super Bowl. The only way it can get any bigger than that is if the Steelers win. Talk about going out on the top of your game!

I'll have a tough time with this one. I love the Steeler's, but, Seattle has never gone. I don't care who win's cause, I'm gonna be so sad for the one that doesn't anyway. I know it will be a really good game and I think it'll be a low score also.

Here's to a much deserved Superbowl XL win for them. It should be a tight game, but I have faith!!

I'm going to root for Seattle just so I'll have an interest in the game.

Oh, and because I hate the Steelers.
