Yes We Can - And I Don't Mean Obama

We did it!!! The Arizona Cardinals finally made it to the Superbowl!!!! The game started off with a bang with Jordin Sparks singing an amazing rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Wow-made me remember why I voted for her during American Idol 2 years ago:) That, and she is from Glendale, Arizona.
Larry Fitzgerald made amazing plays along with Kurt Warner, both also great men. They both credit their families, parents, and Heavenly Father for their success and are fun to watch. They conduct their personal lives outside of the media spotlight which is refreshing.
We also had the pleasure of meeting one of the guys who guard the quarterback (ok, I am not technical with football terms) at church. Deuce Lutui attended our ward the first of January and bore his testimony. What a sweet testimony he had!! He said this time of year he does not get to attend chuch that much and he was thankful to attend the blessing of one his good friend's baby. It was a pleasure to meet him and hear him bear his testimony of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.
As one of the signs said "We will shock the world" and the Arizona Cardinals did. It has been 60 years since they last went won a championship. Go Cards!!

Steph, you are so funny. :) Loved your post! Keith is pretty darned excited about this too. He has an autographed football from the team from when he escorted them in DC. He's getting ready to put it in a glass case since they are now going to the superbowl. The goofball.....
