'Anything possible,' Obama tells joyous crowd

The headline on's main page says it all, even if that headline refers to something as mundane as the election and soon-to-be inauguration of the first African-American president in U.S. history.

The Arizona Cardinals proved all of the naysayers and doubters wrong when they mounted a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat the scrappy Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game. With that victory, the Cardinals earned their franchise-first Super Bowl berth.

That game will be held in Tampa in two weeks, against either the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Baltimore Ravens.

Last August, you could have told me that on January 19, 2009, headlines all over the country would read...
"McKinney/Barr/Nader prepares for inauguration"

"Phoenix digs out from monster nor'easter"

"George W. Bush appears on 'Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?' and wins"

...and I would have thought any of those would be more likely to be true than...
"Cardinals beat Eagles, clinch berth in first-ever Super Bowl"

Congratulations to the Arizona Cardinals, their players, coaches, and fans.

One more game to go...
