The Tribune completes its countdown to Super Bowl XLII at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale with a memory from the last of 41 prior Super Bowls.

Super Bowl XLI

When: Feb. 4, 2007

Where: Dolphin Stadium, Miami

Score: Indianapolis 29, Chicago 17

Defining moment: Leading 19-14 early in the fourth quarter, the Colts took control of the game when Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman badly overthrew a receiver, and Kelvin Hayden intercepted the ball and returned it 56 yards along the sideline for a touchdown.

Quotable: “If people thought his career was incomplete without a Super Bowl victory, that’s just wrong. But now, he’s done it. He’s a Hall of Fame quarterback, one of the best that’s ever played the game.” — Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy on quarterback Peyton Manning, who earned the first championship in a nine-year career

Lasting impact: Rightly or wrongly, Manning’s legacy was solidified by the image of him hoisting the Vince Lombardi trophy in the rain after the first Super Bowl to be played in a steady downpour. The game was a matchup of black coaches, Dungy and the Bears’ Lovie Smith, with Dungy becoming the first to win a Super Bowl. The Colts — who lost their Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl V when ex-owner Carroll Rosenbloom took it with him when he traded the franchise for the Los Angeles Rams — finally had one for themselves.
