This is turning out to be a historic year. My hometown team, the Arizona Cardinals, are going to Superbowl 43. What makes it historic is that this is this is the first NFC championship for the team. Ever.
Had they won one year earlier, they could have played in the Superbowl in Arizona.
In 1988 they moved to Arizona and played in Sun Devil Stadium. I recall going to at least one of those games. They have played poorly for a long time, it’s good to see them finally win.
