When I was a kid growing up in Cleveland Browns territory, about halfway towards Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Steelers were our mortal enemies. Then when I went to grad school, I shared an apartment with a guy from Pittsburgh, and we had a lot of fun when Browns/Steelers games turned up on TV. Now I'm happy to root for Pittsburgh, except when they play the Browns, of course.

Lets see if the refs play favorites with the Stealers, again.

Packers through and through. I grew up in GB. Wasn't a big fan growing up, but not having the crazy green and gold EVERYWHERE makes me miss home. So I watch and root for them now. Plus, if I rooted for another team, my family may never speak to me again.

I'm excited for Puppy Bowl! I have all kinds of special food prepared, mostly featuring the hot dog and kibble type foods.

Steelers will win. Their defense is relentless. Rodgers is great but he just isnt the same after he takes a big hit (which will happen early and often). And Ben is a winner. 24-20 Steelers. Ben hits Mike Wallace with :49 left. You heard it here first.

It's probably not a good thing to be able to calculate your odds of getting a concussion on any specific play

When I was a kid in the 1960s, my parents and I took a vacation road trip up through Michigan and the U.P., and down through Wisconsin to Chicago where my father had an army reunion. My father and I thought it worth stopping in Green Bay to get a picture of the stadium.

This is the reason I'm rooting for the Packers. I'm a Seahawks fan, and watching the refs hate on the Hawks just turned me against the Stealers.

The refs did a number on the Ravens against the Steelers their last meeting. A phantom holding call on a punt return for a touchdown, and then calling a defensive holding on what would have been a failed 3rd down attempt by Pittsburgh when it was the offense that was holding resulted in an 8 point swing in what ended up as a 7 point game.

Good, the Steelers deserved it.
