Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
That was some game. Reminded me of a great prizefight with multiple knockdowns

Coddling of QBs? Refs are too protective? Geez, how about a 15-yard-penalty that wasn't called and ended up being the last play of the game?!? Cannot argue with the below picture. A 15-yarder... and not a "protect the QB" type of call. A call that should draw a flag for any player. No flag and Green Bay loses. The proper call is made and Green Bay has 1st-and-10 from their own 35-yard-line.

I thought the officiating in the NFL playoff games was poor all weekend. The refs missed Joe Flacco picking up a first down late against the Patriots, a blown call barely corrected by replay review, and I am convinced that the Ravens made their two point conversion attempt after their last touchdown.
