Well, EA Sports has done their traditional annual Super Bowl preview simulation, and the Video Steelers win by the surprisingly close score of 28-24. Video Ben Roethlisberger gets the MVP award, but it certainly sounds like he stole it from Video Santonio Holmes.
In the third quarter, the Cardinals managed to close the gap to 21-14 and looked to have momentum swinging their direction. But when Holmes shook double coverage to catch a 17-yard touchdown over the middle of the field, he gave the Steelers a lead that would not be broken.
Holmes ended the play with an emphatic spike in the back of the end zone as he realized he was about to become immortalized as a Super Bowl legend.
I have one question about the whole thing, though — and it’s not how they know what Video Santonio is thinking during his end zone celebration: why is there no flash movie of the matchup online? Not the whole game, necessarily — even I couldn’t bring myself to watch that, I don’t think — but if you’re going to the trouble to provide statistics, a Play of the Game, and a 250 word game story, why not toss up a highlight reel as well? Am I really the only person who would be amused by that?
