King on the Packers-Steelers Super Bowl: “It’s Just Cool”

SI columnist Peter King this morning had the following tidbit about the Super matchup 13 days from now, and the history lesson that everyone will get when the two teams meet in Dallas for Super Bowl XLV.

The Packers were born in 1921 and the Rooney family bought a franchise in Pittsburgh in 1933 (the Pirates then, and renamed the Steelers in 1940). In the 45-year history of Super Bowls, there’s never been one with such history. Never has there been a title game with two teams more than 75 years old. And never has there been a matchup of teams with as many Super Bowl titles — Pittsburgh six, Green Bay three.

Steelers-Packers. It’s just cool.

    It is “cool”. Two historic and deserving franchises. “Title Town vs “The City of Champions” as my friend Mike said last night! I cant wait to watch this.

    It’s going to be a historic Super Bowl. Could possibly be the most watched Super Bowl in history. FOX Sports must be salivating at the potential ratings.

    Peter King was dead on as I remember him picking Steelers vs Packers matchup in SI’s preseason issue.
