So the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers will meet February 6, at Super Bowl XLV...in Dallas (well, Arlington, but whatever...). Congratulations to them both but...
It will probably take me until kick-off to really get ready for this game (not excited, but ready).
I confess, I'm still not over it.
I wasn't a Cowboys fan (or a football fan, for that matter) when the Dallas and Green Bay played in the '66 Cotton Bowl National Championship or the '67 Ice Bowl. But sore feelings (ok, bitterness), is inherited around those two storied games.
Dallas lost in 1966 to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 34-27, in the Cotton Bowl; in 1967's famed Ice Bowl game, the Cowboys were defeated again, by the Packers 21-17.
Images of those contests are ingrained in my memory...aided by ESPN retrospectives and the constant reminders of photos that show Lynn Swann's acrobatic catches and Jackie Smith's...dropped pass!
