Matter of perspective

So the Steelers have their stirring victory at Baltimore under adverse circumstances, and we all write about what a solid effort it was.
Read the Baltimore papers, though, and it's all about the Ravens' failure. The big question is how could the Ravens lose to a team quarterbacked by Charlie Batch. Nothing against Baltimore journalism, this is just the way things work. The focus is always on the local team.
When the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl against the Steelers, what was the story here? It wasn't that the Packers won, it was that the Steelers lost.
