It’s only August 15 and I’ve used the “Injury Report” tag three times already. NOT a good sign. The Pittsburgh Steelers began training camp with… Read More »Steelers Injury Situation Getting Ridiculous
Best. Twitter. Avatar. Ever.
Sorry for being tardy with this update but since the [intlink id=”19″ type=”category”]Pittsburgh Steelers [/intlink]mauling of the Dream Team aka Philadelphia Eagles was nationally broadcast last night, I figured it better to do a more news-specific update than a recap of the game. Speaking of Twitter, twittering during preseason games makes them much more tolerable (and if you’re not following my twitter, well, my legs aren’t as nice as Kym’s but I know a lot more about football). Especially when you’re forced to listen to the unholy combination of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Adding the greatest Steeler QB of all-time, Terry Bradshaw, to the mix did help a little if only because it’s amusing how discombobulated TB makes Aikman.
Oh and that horrifying NFL on Fox commercial featuring all the announcers in their underwear? Had to be Joe Buck’s idea.

Repeat after me: “It’s only the preseason… It’s only the preseason…”
The[intlink id=”19″ type=”category”] Pittsburgh Steelers[/intlink] played their first preseason (don’t call them exhibitions!) game last night. I tapped out shortly before half time but thanks to the magic of DVR, I finished the game a few minutes ago. Even in fast forward, it was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. To say it was a forgettable performance from the boys in Black and Gold would be an understatement.
“It’s only the preseason… It’s only the preseason…”

The [intlink id=”19″ type=”category”]Pittsburgh Steelers [/intlink]kick off their preseason this evening at 7:30 p.m. We all know preseason football blows but remember a few months ago when the year was in peril? Consider preseason football better than no football at all. Or Arena Football. Although I wouldn’t mind having a Lingerie Football team.
Seriously, whose bright idea was it to open up a beautiful state-of-the-art facility like the Consol Energy Center then make it their first priority to bring Arenaball back to the ‘Burgh? If Green freakin’ Bay has a Lingerie Football team, why don’t we? Get on it, Consol bigwigs. There are some hot Polish chicks down in McKees Rocks that could kick the Pittsburgh Power’s asses up and down the field.
*Ahem* Sorry for the little detour. When you’re a team coming off a soul-crushing Super Bowl defeat, the thing about the preseason is there is precious little suspense. You may hear about so-and-so having a great camp but the bottom line is the coaches pretty much already know who is starting and who is backing them up. However, there are still a few interesting battles to keep an eye on.
