Super Bowl XLIII just ended, but the celebration is just beginning for the Steelers and their legions of fans.

Exiting the tunnel, chants of “Let’s Go Steelers! … Let’s Go Steelers! … Let’s Go Steelers!” can be heard from hundreds of fans clad in Black & Gold.

The game ended 45 minutes ago, but the celebration is ongoing. Players and their families are sharing in the win. Most have extremely large versions of Super Bowl T-shirts stretched over their jerseys and shoulder pads. Aaron Smith had his daughter in his arms. Chris Kemoeatu held the hand of his youngster.

On the side of the field near the Steelers sideline, the bottom few rows of the stands are full of fans trying to get just a little bit closer to the action.

Long snapper Jared Retkofsky is doing a snow angel in the confetti as his family takes pictures.

To the victors go the spoils.
