After the score at the Super Bowl was 20 - 7 at half time, I figured I could just listen to The Boss and then do some work on the DVR. Silly me. The Cardinals managed to make it close, and then Santonio Holmes managed to drag his feet just long enough to win it for the Steelers:
After Pittsburgh lost a lead that it had held since the first possession of the game, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and receiver Santonio Holmes moved the Steelers 78 yards and connected for a 6-yard touchdown that Holmes grabbed as he was falling out of bounds behind three Cardinals defenders in the corner of the end zone with 42 seconds to play. That was the game-winner in a 27-23 victory that gave the Steelers their sixth Super Bowl title[.]

It could have been worse, I suppose. It could have gone into overtime. Plus, if the Cardinals had won we would have been treated to the spectacle of Kurt Warner explaining how his god helped him win the game over those heathens on the other team.
Thanks to this poor decision on my part, we have no highlight screenshots to show. That wonderful image above is Holmes moments after catching the game-winning touchdown pass. It's from the USA Today. (That link takes you to an article with a link to a larger version.)
Actually, this was a terrific game, and even for those of us who are only casual fans, well worth watching. Congratulations to the Steelers, who are now the only team to have won the Super Bowl six times, and to the Cardinals for playing such a good game.
