The Superbowl was on last weekend and it came down to a nail-biting finish in the match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals; the Steelers snatching victory in a ballet-like touchdown in the last few seconds of the game.
Irish people, like most Europeans, couldn't give a shite about American football, and this outcome in particular. But they should, as Obama may be about to appoint the Steelers owner as US Ambassador in Dublin. "We are all Steelers fans now," Irish people might, but probably won't, yet should, say.
By the way, if you ask why do I like American football, I answer: Once you think of it like this, what's not to like?
