STRETCHED FOR SUCCESS
With the team's minute-by-minute pregame schedule on the dry-erase board behind him, running back Willie Parker got a leg up for Super Bowl XLIII by stretching his quads in the solitude of the Steelers' locker room before the game. Parker led Pittsburgh in rushing against Arizona, running for 53 yards on 19 carries.
Linebacker James Harrison experienced the joy of six in Super Bowl XLIII when, on the last play of the first half, he intercepted a Kurt Warner pass at the Steelers' goal line and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown and a 17-7 halftime lead. The return went down as the longest play in Super Bowl history.
FIELD OF DREAMS
After the Steelers' 27-23 comeback victory against the Cardinals in one of the most exciting Super Bowls ever, left guard Chris Kemoeatu and his nine-year-old sister, Ana, walked off the confetti-covered Raymond James Stadium field. Pittsburgh's Super Bowl win was its sixth, the most of any NFL franchise.
