If Pittsburgh had won Super Bowl XLV, the players would've relished in the win and Steelers' fans would've cheered and gloated. Big Ben might have redeemed himself, and moved closer to a reservation in the Hall of Fame.
Their seventh title would be wonderful for a while, but the joyous effects of the big game would wear within a week. The aftertaste of being champs wouldn't be savored because of the Steelers recent success.
But the Green Bay Packers came out victorious in Dallas, and it was oh so sweet for Titletown and its die-hard cheeseheads.
The Lombardi Trophy found its way back to Lombardi's team and it was a special moment for the the Green and Gold, especially Super Bowl MVP, Aaron Rodgers. He was handed the championship belt he once imagined, now made visible in his hands.
As the confetti fell in Jerry Jone's palace, the Green Bay Packers celebrated as champions. It had been a long ride for Mike McCarthy's team, but now they are reaping the rewards.
Besides a red Camaro and trip to Disney World for Rodgers, and a White House visit for the team (possibly to rub the victory in the face of Bears fan, President Obama) there are several other reasons why this may have been the most memorable Super Bowl win for the Green Bay Packers.
