Hot Links: Defeated Cardinals to Be Welcomed Home by Rally at Sky Harbor; Porn Interrupts Super Bowl Broadcast in Tucson ; McCain Criticizes Spending in Stimulus Bill


They came, they saw -- they choked. Or maybe they were robbed of a Super Bowl victory by a bad call. But the Arizona Cardinals put up a helluva fight against the Steelers and they'll be coming home at 3:30 today to a cheering crowd at Sky Harbor. Daddy, what was that? Television hackers manage to air 10 seconds of pornographic images on the same channel as the Super Bowl in Tucson. McCain says Obama's economic stimulus plan contains too much spending. Authorities find the bodies of two Arizona City residents missing since 2007 in steel drums -- the guy who allegedly put them there is being accused of murder. It might not have been as exciting as watching Larry Fitzgerald making his awesome touchdown run, but golfer Kenny Perry made a killer 22-foot putt to win yesterday's FBR Open. And, rounding out the sports-dominated news: A picture surfaces of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps smoking from a bong.
