Congratulations are in order for the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. I’ve always liked Cowher, he seems like a real genuine guy and the Pittsburgh faithful have stuck with him through thick and thin. It’s nice to see one of the nice guys get his just reward…

In the world of ice hockey the Blackhawks came to Nashville and were shut out 6-0; Scott Hartnell had the hat trick and Tomas Vokoun stopped 40 shots on goal. But the real story of the game came from some Blackhawk fans who almost stole the show. From John Glennon of the Nashville Tennessean:

Sign of the times: Three fans dressed in Chicago Blackhawks jerseys and bags over their heads were shown on the Gaylord Entertainment Center Jumbotron during last night’s game. In the third period, the trio easily won the applause-based fan of the game award.

For those of you that enjoy motorsports, the Daytona 500 signals the opening of the 2006 Nascar season and that race is scheduled for two weeks from today. I’m hoping that Mark Martin will lead the #6 team to it’s first Cup championship, but the racing gods seem to all favor Tony Stewart.

And for Cubs fans, pitchers and catchers report in ten days.
