  • One of the most exciting finishes in all sports, that had a story book quality to the whole event.

    The new millenium couldn't get off to a better start in sports, then what Super Bowl XXXIV brought to the sports world. An instant classic, that seemed like destiny was determined to shine on the St.Louis Rams. It started with a coach by the name of Dick Vermeil that had a 15 year exodus from coaching football to come back and after two unsuccessful seasons, looked in over his head and in one magical year turned it all around and led his team to a Super Bowl Championship. To their QB, Kurt Warner who was stocking shelves a few years prior, then taking over the sports world, while breaking NFL records in the process. Going into the game, the Rams looked the part of the best team and clear favorites. It even looked that way in the first half of the game. But games are won and lost on the field, not on paper. After the Rams stretched the score to 16-0, Titans coach Jeff Fisher rallied his players and reminded them that game was far from over and it is time to start acting right now. The Titans will and determination made them focus about playing good football and that is what they did, they stormed back to tie the game. And as soon as they tied the game, the Rams bounced back with a big 73 yard TD pass reception by Isaac Bruce to take aa 23-16 lead. Titans methodically march down the field, making play after playe against a very winded Rams defense. Titans QB Steve McNair putting his team on his back to try and carry them to victory, knowing when to run, knowing when to pass. One play was the perfect example of that courageous will and determination, Late in the game, with 22 seconds left McNair ran out of the grasp of two Rams defenders to throw a beautiful pass to WR Kevin Dyson to bring the Titans down to the 10 yard line with 6 seconds remaining. One play to decide it or to send the game possibly into overtime. McNair drops back to pass to hit Dyson, Dyson was on his way to what he thought was a sure TD and out of nowhere LB Mike Jones comes to make the game saving tackle at the one yard line, with the time expiring on the clock. The confetti begans to fall moments later, and you end with Coach Dick Vermeil and QB Kurt Warner holding the Championship Trophy.moreless
  • I'm not interested in any of these teams, but for my cousin: I wanted the Titans to win!!

    9.0
    Seriously, I'm not into the Tennessee Titans. I'm DEFINATELY not into the St. Louis Rams as well, but if I had to pick, I'd have to go with the Titans here. See, my cousin's favorite team now are the Titans because former Texas Longhorn quarterback, Vince Young, is now the QB at Tennessee. Hey, that rhymed! Okay, moving on.. Though I know Vince Young wasn't a Titan during this Super Bowl, but I'd still root for the Titans. You don't see many people in America rooting for the Titans, I know that, but I guess I'm a people who do root for the Titans. At least it was no 41-10 blow out or something like that. Just a simple plain, normal 7 point game?moreless
