Super Bowl XLIII
It was February 1, 2009 and the biggest day in the year for some. It was Super Bowl XLIII (43).

The second quarter was much more exciting.   The quarter featured a total of three touchdowns. With 14:09 remaining in the half, Gary Russel of the Steelers capped a 11 play, 69 yard...
