Lucky 13!

Green Bay is Titletown again!

A nail-biting, hard-fought win as the Steelers take the Packers down to the final whistle. But as time ran out and the confetti rained down from the closed Cowboys Stadium roof, the Packers stood supreme at the top of the top of the football world.

The Packers wore the Lombardi-trophy Super Bowl XLV logo patch over their hearts. Or at least their collarbones, though that somehow lacks a certain poetic heft.

And, as they did throughout the playoffs, the captains wore their League-approved patch.

A matching decal was added to the back of the helmet.

Even the coaches got into the act, with a Super Bowl logo emblazoned on their sideline jackets.

We'll take a look at the championship gear tomorrow, but for now, it's time for Packers fans to enjoy the win. World Champions!
