The past few days have presented you with clues. Clues as to who The Sports Muse is rooting for in this year's Super Bowl. There were subtexts. Embedded messages. Secret codes. Did you see them?
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews sure cleans up nicely. He goes from this on the field:
Seriously. What is he doing in these pictures?
To this off of it:
In this corner, standing at 5' 10" and 207 pounds with flowing jet black hair is Pittsburgh Steelers safety Trrooooy Palomaluuuu.

In the other corner, standing at 6'3", 255 pounds and a hair full of golden locks is Green Packer outside linebacker Claaaay Maaathews.

Football talk on Women's Wear Daily--not a pairing you'd expect to see. However, I stumbled upon a little gem on the Mensweek section of WWD that did exactly that. They featured a "Rating the Quarterbacks" piece, ranking the top ten quarterbacks in the NFL based on a variety of factors. Level of play counted for less than half of the overall score. How fun!
The good news about the end of the football season is that the NFL isn't the only league chock full o' crazy this season. The NBA's drama started before the season even began, with LeBron's Decision. Actually, Lebron, the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers have accounted for a good 50% of the NBA's drama. And that is a mild estimate.
There is nothing more I can add to the perfection of this someecard. It's official: After this weekend's heartbreak, I'm now rooting for the Baltimore Ravens. At least for this weekend.
What an emotional weekend. Both 2010 Super Bowl teams are out. The team once talked about as being possible a 2011 Super Bowl contender, Mike Vick and the Eagles, are out. We all predicted this, right?
It was a tumultuous weekend around the NFL. It's the reason football fans love the game and the kind of uncertainty that peaks the curiosity of the casual observer.
