DE Smith Practices; Cardinals Ready to Rumble


The Cardinals got some good news Friday in the injury departement, as starting DE Antonio Smith took part in all the practice, and will go Sunday in Super Bowl XLIII vs the Steelers. He is listed as probable due to a sore knee. As far as the other players a little banged up, RB/KR J.J. Arrington DE Travis LaBoy and punter Ben Graham were all limited.

Arrington has a sore left knee, LaBoy an injured biceps and Graham a sore groin. Overall, it sounds like the Cardinals are as ready as they are going to be for the Super Bowl showdown against the favored Steelers. Coach Ken Whisenhunt met with the media one last time on Friday morning, and felt his team had done what they needed to do in the week leading up to the game.

“I thought it was a good week of work,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “You always wonder when you go on the road and your team is practicing in another facility if your team is going to have the consistency that you’ve had. No question that it helped us that we’ve already done this once this season.”

Reports say that Kurt Warner had his best throwing day of the week, and he’ll have to have a good game for the Cards, a 7-point underdog, to pull off the upset on the Steelers.

    I’m from Malaysia and I do have cousins from Australia. I can tell that from what I’ve heard, this Super Bowl is pretty big for the Aussie.

    The fairy tale story of both Ben Graham and the Cardinals goes hand in hand. It will be great that once again that the underdogs will prevail over the favourites.

    I know I will support the Cardinals. As a testimony to this, I’ve decided to skip work to watch the game on Monday morning.

    Vamos Cardinals!!!

    I,Dana, had the pleasure of being the Head Cook for the 2002-2003 Oklahoma State University’s Football, Basketball, Tennis and Baseball Teams.
    During that very busy year I fed this group of wonderful athletes from sunrise, all the way until
    11:00 pm at night. I got to know these great guys very well during that wonderful year.
    I understood their likes and dislikes when it came to food and other personal
    stuff in their lives. I never met a better group of men in all of my life.
    They treated me like a queen and made me feel a part of each and every team.
    I worked super hard to make sure they had the best in meats, casseroles, side dishes, and desserts. I hardly ever saw my kids during this year, but my children understood
    I was giving it my 110% towards these men’s meals each day. All of these teams did quite well during their seasons. Maybe I helped in some way by keeping them fed well during the year.
    We had a lot of great talent come out from this great group of men. I’m so proud to have been their Cook and a great listener during hard times for them. I miss you dearly Vernon Grant and Darrent Williams (former Denver Bronco). You were both special to my heart.
    I remember sneaking Josh Fields plenty of extra desserts up to his room.
    I always made sure that Vernard, Rashan, Tatum, and a special guy names Antonio had
    extra Buffalo Wings, Fried Shrimp, Crab Legs, and Beef Brisket every week.
    I will never forget all the Russian Crab Legs & Steaks we went through during a victory dinner after beating Nebraska that year. They were the best crab legs to eat.
    Antonio Smith always went out of his busy schedule to stop in the kitchen and say hello to me.
    He was a blessing to me because he cared so much about me and worried about me being on my legs way too much and he always gave me inside tips on what the boys really wanted for breakfast, lunch and dinner each night. He was like a son to me and I will never forget that great smile of his each day.
    Thanks Antonio for being such a joy in the kitchen and at games. You would always look up
    during a game and point to me with that winning smile on your face. I will cherish those moments forever. He now plays for the Arizona Cardinals and I’m proud to say I was his Cook for his Senior year at OSU. I believe in this team and I’m praying that they come out of the Super Bowl with a victory. And if they don’t, I will still be their greatest fan always.
    Love You~ Antonio Smith (DE # 94). I’m proud of you !! Hugs~ Dana
