The Super Bowl has created many one-hit wonders during the years, but was any bigger than Brett Keisel‘s beard? Not that it matters, the beard is going away.

Hey NFL fan! It’s Ralph Lanier Jr., your NFL Director of Fandemonium here to tell you all about my phenomenal experiences at the 2011 Pro Bowl and also Super Bowl XLV. It’s been a busy and exciting couple of weeks and sadly, these are my final two entries.
After a ride down Main Street USA with Mickey yesterday, Aaron Rodgers flew to NYC for a little sit down with Dave on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”

Green Bay’s win in Super Bowl XLV is a tribute to the competitive balance in the NFL. The Packers can thank NFC North-rival Detroit for beating Tampa Bay. Had Detroit not beaten the Buccaneers in Week 16, the Packers wouldn’t have made the playoffs to begin with, let alone won the title. That’s how close things are in this league.

It looks like the Packers will be without one of their biggest weapons for the time being, as Donald Driver has left the sideline for X-rays on his injured ankle.
Several first-quarter injuries for the Steelers could play a role in the outcome of Super Bowl XLV.
