For those of us who are longsuffering fans of the Arizona Cardinals, and I’ve been one since the team first moved to my hometown, and for whom enthusiasm for the season usually died early, today was a day worth waiting for. The improbable, almost impossible has occurred, and a team with origins in Chicago, and which many thought was almost as cursed as the Cubs, has done it. It is delightful just to write the words, the Arizona Cardinals are in the Super Bowl.
That’s right. The Cardinals are in the Super Bowl.
I wish I was in Phoenix.
