Championship Sunday, Wrap Ups

Four Teams entered the fields of battle today, but only two will be going to New Orleans to play in Super Bowl XXXVI next Sunday. Congratgulations to the St. Louis Rams, representing the NFC, and for the AFC, the New England Patriots who upset the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers. Super Bowl XXXVI, will be next Sunday February 3rd, 6pm ET on FOX.

America is a great country, it was only 4 months ago that Sept. 11th loomed over us. It was extremely difficult for players, coaches, media and fans to enjoy the game of football, but life goes on, and it wasn't long before everyone was back into full blown football mode.

Well not everyone. One of the biggest fans of the game and a personal friend of mine is defending our freedom right now. He missed an entire season of football and may end up missing next years too, but he feels great in knowing that he is fighting so that all of us can enjoy this great game.

I've seen during every football game since December how the players have taken the time to commend our armed forces, and I just wanted to do the same in this wrap up.

Enjoy the highlights below of today's exciting match ups.
