Rendell delays speech for Super Bowl celebration
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Ed Rendell is so confident that the Pittsburgh Steelers will win this year's Super Bowl that he's postponing his budget speech to the Legislature.
Rendell's spokesman says his boss will deliver his annual address on Feb. 4 — one day later than usual — to allow time for Steelers fans to return from Florida and celebrate back home next Tuesday.
Spokesman Chuck Ardo says Rendell plans to attend the Super Bowl on Sunday, when the Steelers play the Arizona Cardinals. Ardo says it's too early to say whether the governor would join in the celebrations.

That could be bad news for Steelers fans, since Rendell -- in his side gig as an analyst on Comcast SportsNet -- predicted the Eagles to be the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game.
