Favorites win American Super Bowl

Per ESPN, a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Santantonio Holmes with 35 seconds remaining lifted the Pittsburgh Steelers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals, 27-23, in Tampa Bay, Fla., in "what may have been the most exciting Super Bowl ever."

Loyal fans tweeted throughout the game. The differing viewpoints as the game ended were staggering.

@damer1 (Phoenix, Ariz.): Heartbreaker.

@dpbkmb (Pittsburgh, Pa.): Pop! Fizzzzzzzz... Asti. What a relief.

Some tweeted from the game itself, such as @mattbacak.

Then there were the celebrities, like M.C. Hammer (@MCHammer), who tweeted from his second-row seats, and Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk), who had tweeting troubles.
