Last night, over 100 million viewers tuned in to see the Green Bay Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25, bringing the Vince Lombardi trophy back to title town.
As commentators droned on incessantly with uninteresting commentary about the game, some of the nation’s best editorial cartoonists were hard at work penning their thoughts about the game.
Nationally-syndicated sports cartoonist Drew Litton focused on Super Bowl XLV MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Lombardi trophy returning home.
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review cartoonist Randy Bish lamented the Steelers’ loss and their quest for a record seventh championship.
Cartoonist Dave Granlund saw the defeat as a steel-mangling triumph for the Packers.
While Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cartoonist Rob Rogers (view Rob’s cartoons here) turned the Vince Lombardi trophy into the ultimate Cheesehead. Rob also attended this year’s Super Bowl, and posted some terrific cartoons throughout the week on his blog.
