Congratulations to the NFC Championship Arizona Cardinals!
They were the dark horse of the NFL 2008-2009 playoffs. I wanted them to win because I didn't like anyone else, and because I like seeing history in the making. I hoped they would but didn't think they'd beat Atlanta, where they came away with a 30-24 victory after shutting down the Falcon's running game. I hoped they would but didn't think they'd beat Carolina, who they destroyed 33-13 and dominated every facet of that game. Finally, I hoped and couldn't have dreamed they could beat Philadelphia, who they shut down in the first half and the final quarter for a 32-25 victory over the Eagles. I believe this is the first Superbowl in franchise history the Cardinals will play in.
Stunned. I'm happily stunned. Arizona fans should be damn proud of their team.
