The Steelers brought confidence with them to Arlington. They are no strangers to this game, and they are letting anyone who will listen know it. And everyone is listening.
The Packers brought swagger with them. Way back before the season began, they donned cowboy hats and boots, indicating to their fans their 2010 journey would end in that wild and woolly place where the West begins: Arlington, Texas.
Well, most would say Fort Worth and its famed "Hell's Half Acre" of western lore is more accurate, but Arlington is close enough.
Both the Steelers and the Packers brought their weather with them. No sooner had they arrived than the beautiful, sunny days of sunshine and 70 degrees that had lifted our Texas spirits yielded to an Arctic front, predicted to deliver the coldest temperatures in a decade in these parts.
Serves them right. We didn't want either of these teams here in the first place, and the sooner they leave and take their nasty weather with them, the sooner our team can get started getting back where they belong.
Until then, "Happy football, everybody!"
