|Steelers Arrive in Playful Mood
|FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers arrived at the Super Bowl in a playful mood, snapping photos on their cell phones and wearing everything from Michigan State jerseys to full cowboy garb.
A half-dozen players attended a news conference Monday; the Green Bay Packers were arriving later in the day.
Ben Roethlisberger held his mobile phone high and took photos of the six-deep pack of reporters at his podium. Hines Ward went the ``True Grit'' route, decked out in black cowboy hat, belt buckle and jeans.
Roethlisberger explained it all this way: "Hey, it's the Super Bowl. It's supposed to be fun."
The offensive linemen paid tribute to tackle Flozell Adams, who spent a dozen seasons as a Dallas Cowboy. They wore his No. 76 Michigan State shirt as they deplaned.
