Leader of the Pack

       In case you haven’t heard for the 100th time, the Lombardi Trophy is back home in Titletown.

The Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl 45 on Sunday and props should be given to Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

He played a helluva game against the vaunted Steelers defense, except maybe for their secondary —– which can now be officially called suspect.

The game’s MVP not only lived up to the hype but he exceeded expectations (if there’s a difference between the two.) He didn’t have a pick and his passes were lasers that were spot on.

The final score was 31 to 25, but it could have been worse for the Steelers, had Rodgers’ receivers not dropped at least five key passes that could’ve resulted in scores, if not better field position to possibly add on to their score.

The Steelers gave it a valiant effort in the third and fourth quarters — at one time in the game they were down 18 points. And when Big Ben Roethlisberger had the ball with just over two minutes left and his team down by six points, fans were thinking he was going to whip up some more magic and the Steelers would score a TD and win by 32-31.

But it wasn’t meant to be. Not this time. Stairway to Seven for the Steelers will have to wait until next season —- if there isn’t a lock-out.

You can bet they’ll be back and more than likely represent the AFC once again in Super Bowl 46.

In the meantime, President Obama —- who was rooting for his Chicago Bears to get to the Super Bowl —- will have to meet and greet the Packers at the White House, since all winning Super Bowl teams get that privilege.

Surprisingly, conservatives didn’t make a big deal out of Obama not rooting for the Packers —- since the team is America’s only municipally owned Big League football team.

Yes, sports fans, that counts as socialism.

Well, the game is in the books, and who could forget some of the memorable moments:

1. Packers safety Nick Collins’ pick 6 of Roethlisberger early in the game after the Packers scored a touchdown of their own. Two scores in 25 seconds. Ouch!

2. The Packers D rising to the occasion after their captain Charles Woodley left the game with an injury that would sideline him the rest of the game. Apparently during halftime, Woodley gave an empassioned speech and his teammates responded.

3. The cut-away shot in the stands of Cameron Diaz feeding Alex Rodriguez popcorn.

Thanks for that one, Fox Sports. It ranks (or reeks) right up there with CBS’ cut-away shot during the AFC Championship Game of Jets QB Marck Sanchez wiping a booger on backup QB Mark Brunell’s coat.

Meanwhile, those Super Bowl ads were, for the most part, pretty lame.

Eminem went all social conscious on us with his valentine to the struggling Motor City.

Snickers tried to top its TV ad of last year that brought Betty White an upteenth career by trying to do the same with Roseanne Barr. Obviously the candy corporation didn’t realize that it worked with Betty simply because she’s sweet.

The best spot was the pint-sized kid in a Darth Vadar outfit trying to start  mechanical objects in his house with his “force” — but to no avail. Dad comes through to the rescue with his remote control to turn on the car lights to his VW Passat when the kid tries his power out on it. Super ad.

But let the chips fall where they may: The worst spot was the Doritos ad where some guy finishes the junk food with his hand and then a nerdy co-worker asks if he’s done. The guy says yes, but the wimpy guy says no he isn’t and starts licking the guy’s finger.

This is where we’re going, America. That and spots like the Pepsi Max one where the smart ass guy in the crowd is going to get a can shot right at his junk.

The best thing about a good TV ad (if there is such a thing) is that you don’t know what to expect from it. That Pepsi ad was telegraphed.

Too bad some of Aaron Rodgers’ passes weren’t…..
