The Super Bowl match up is set. The Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship, and the New York Jets lost to  the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship. Super Bowl XLV's teams now have two weeks to prepare for "the big one." Here to describe the heartache and the triumph, as well as what's coming, is Nando Di Fino, sports reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

Yes, there were 2 good games yesterday. However, you let your guest from WSJ get away with the comment "There's nothing wrong with this game." What about former players suffering severe cognitive dysfunction due to repeated concussions? At the end of the Steelers game the Steelers' Farrier put a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on a Jets ball-carrier. Defensively it amounted to a good play, but how can you ignore the consequences? No penalty was called and the announcers made no comment.
