From the Daily News:

Larry Fitzgerald Sr., a syndicated radio sports journalist and writer for the Minneapolis Spokesman-Recorder newspaper, is getting to see his fantasy come true. His son Larry Jr. is the outstanding receiver for the Arizona Cardinals who will start against Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII on Sunday.

“It’s just still hard to believe it’s happening right in front of my eyes,” Fitzgerald said. “You see your son develop and you think that one day it’s possible. But you never really know. I’m pinching myself everyday. I’m very gratified.”

The Cards are RET TO GO, via the Daily News:

“We don’t care what people think about us,” Berry scowled as the media descended for the first time this week. “People have said they don’t like the fact that the Cardinals are in the Super Bowl. That’s too bad. We’re here. If you don’t want to watch us, go watch something else. I’m sure there are other programs on other channels. Good luck with that. But we’re here. We’re going to play this game. We deserve to be here. We’ve earned the right to be here. And we’re not going to make any apologies for it.”

“We’re not here to enjoy the Super Bowl. We’re here to win it,” said safety Adrian Wilson. “We don’t want to be second-best.”

While they are short on big-game experience compared to the Super Bowl XL champion Steelers, they have experience at the top in Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner and a coaching staff with 12 rings.

“Only time will tell,” said Warner, when asked if the Cardinals have enough maturity to handle the week. “The bottom line is, why are you here? When you’re able to put one of those rings on your finger, it means access to a lot of parties in the future. You don’t have to go enjoy them all this week. You can do what you came here to do and enjoy all the parties the rest of your life.”
