Superbowl 2009: Superbowl XLIII Pittsburgh Steelers vs Arizona Cardinals

superbowl-2009 Today is Superbowl 2009, with the superbowl kickoff start time schedule at 6:20 p.m. EST in Tampa Florida, where the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals will go head-to-head and brawn-to-brawn to decide who will win the Superbowl trophy. Super bowl coverage begins as early as 12:00 noon EST with the Matt Lauer interview of President Barack Obama. Are you ready for some football?!

Men, women, teenagers and children will be parked in front of their television sets this Superbowl Sunday to watch the super bowl, sufficiently prepared and loaded up with all kinds of superbowl food, snacks, beer, dips, nuts and various other high calorie superbowl snacks. Don’t forget to add the 7-layer dip, Mexican style for your list of super bowl foods to snack on.

Some football enthusiasts will watch the Superbowl on live stream online, while others will be following and chatting about Superbowl Ads, commercials, updates on super bowl scores and touchdowns via Twitter. I’m more interested in watching the superbowl commercials and the halftime show than I am watching the game itself, but I’ll be sitting next to my dear hubby during the superbowl, covering my ears whenever he starts yelling at the television during the big game.

Superbowl Hashtags on Twitter

If you are a Twitter user like me, follow along with superbowl chat on Twitter with the superbowl hashtags from Use hash tags on Twitter such as #superbowl, #football4women, #ads, #steelers, #cardinals, #superads09 and #sb43ads, before and during the superbowl. There’s sure to be a lot of Twitter chatter after the big game is over, so don’t miss out on all the Twitter fun.

Who will win the Superbowl? The Pittsburgh Steelers or the Arizona Cardinals? Are you having a superbowl party at your house? Who are you rooting for? From what has been heard over the radio the last few days, bets are that the Steelers will beat the Cardinals, so it’ll be interesting to see who will win the superbowl after all.


Bruce Springsteen Halftime Show

Bruce Springsteen’s halftime show with the E Street Band had mixed reviews on Twitter, with some saying Bruce was off-key while singing his hit songs, while others (mostly more mature/older folks) understood that LIVE singing is often not with perfect pitch and tone. While keeping up with the Superbowl action and tweeting superbowl highlights throughout the super bowl, the question was raised “How old is Bruce Springsteen?” Bruce Springsteen’s date of birth is September 23, 1949, meaning that Springsteen is currently 59 and will turn 60 in September 2009.

    Hi Lin,

    We’re kind of casual sports fans (lol, that’ll have to change once we get to Texas, huh). Obviously we’ll be watching the game in a couple of hours, but to be honest I don’t really have “my team”.

    That being said, I think it would be pretty cool if the Cardinals end up taking it all. Gotta love the Cinderella story.

      Hi Todd,

      According to the superbowl predictions I’ve been seeing online, it appears as though most everyone believes the Steelers will win the super bowl. Like you, I have a tendency to root for the underdog in any game or sport, so we’ll see how it goes. Yes, when you get to Texas, prepare yourself to become a Cowboys fan big time! 🙂 And let’s not forget the Stars hockey team in Dallas either.
