TweetThis! To The Arizona Cardinals - CONGRATULATIONS!! You came a long way!

You don't see men jumping and hugging each other, especially strangers... and in the open except in rare and special occasions.
You don't get hi5'd from somebody whom doesn't even speak your language let alone know who you are.... especially in the parking lot? nah! That's uncommon. It happens only in rare and special occasions.
Yes this was a special and rare occasion that deserved all the attention - The Arizona Cardinals WON the NFC.
I might know nothing about the NFC except that it is a much loved game among many games in the USA. But this Sunday's game was particularly special for one reason, there was a great event downtown in which approximately 70,000 people attended . Seeing on TV and hearing in radios of what was happening at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, I had no choice but to jump in the wagon for celebrations and cheering up for the undeniably, indisputably, remarkable (and every positive adjective you name it) for the good performance demonstrated by The Arizona Cardinals.
The feeling was like that of being on a roller-coaster (not that I have been in one, but c'mon you know the look in the faces and hear the screams from the people who have rode in it)... now what was I saying, yeah, the reaction from people, I mean in one moment you would see people be elated, cheering up in excitement and and joy and right the next moment you see somebody chewing up sunflower seeds (sign of nervousness) or bitting their nails or having their hands on their heads as if they were too heavy to keep position. May be that helped because after the 32-25 win and the timer reading, people were still frozen in their positions at the stadium as if they were struck by a light or they had seen a Messiah!
Oh, what a day, what a day that is for the history in which The Arizona Cardinals beat Philadelphia Eagles, 32-25 to win the National Football Conference championship and reach the Super Bowl for the first time since 1948.
In two weeks, i.e on February 1st 2009, The Az Cards will be heading off to Tampa, Florida for The Super Bowl XLIII against the Pittsburgh Steelersand and possibly become the champions of the NFL. Go Cards!
"Arizona Cardinals and Super Bowl in the same sentence," quarterback Kurt Warner said. “I like the way that sounds.
The game was decided by the Cardinals’ offense. The Cards dominated the first half and led 24-6 at halftime. The Eagles wrested control of the game in the 3d quarter, outgaining Arizona, 165 yards to 8. Philadelphia had taken a 25-24 lead with 10:45 left in the game when the Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb completed a 62-yard bomb to DeSean Jackson over the cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
That last drive when we all looked at each other we said, ‘This is it, we’re going to win this game,’ ” fullback Terrelle Smith said.
Taking over on their own 28-yard line, the Cardinals moved to the Philadelphia 8 with 2:59 left in the game, converting at one point a fourth-and-1 when running back Tim Hightower scooted around right end for a six-yard gain.
Facing a third-and-goal, Warner -- who had his best game ever against Philadelphia’s blitzing defense – threw a middle screen to Hightower. Hightower made a couple of moves before barreling into the end zone.
“I was speechless,” Hightower said. “I saw the end zone and my eyes lit up. It was one of the best feelings to know the coaches have confidence in you in one of the most crucial situations of the game.”
The play was Warner’s fourth touchdown pass of the game. On the next play, Warner found tight end Ben Patrick for a two-point conversion, and the Cards had a seven-point lead with 2:53 left.
The defense, which had been punctured plenty in the second half after the stellar first half, drew on the offense’s success. The Eagles (11-7-1) drove from their own 20 to the Arizona 47, but there McNabb threw four straight incompletions, with cornerback Rod Hood covering wide receiver Kevin Curtis on the final play.
“The coolest thing throughout was, offense and defense, we didn’t panic,” Robinson said. “When they scored on us, (wide receiver) Anquan (Boldin) looked at me and said, ‘We’ve got it.’ “We truly feed off each other. Lackluster third quarter, but it’s all worth it right now to be called NFC Champs.”
Arizonians are very happy to have the NFC Champion trophy now they want that Super Bowl trophy. Cardinals, go get it for them! Wishing you success!
