"Smile," the photog yelled to Harrison.

"I don't smile," the 'backer replied.

"What do you think of the super spread that Texas Tech runs?" I asked him a few minutes later during a break.

"Texas Tech? Who's that?" he asked.

Come on, man. Be cool.

"Seriously, I don't watch football when I go home, man," Harrison insisted. "I don't watch ESPN or none of that -- I watch cartoons."

That was a GREAT article... I busted a gut laughing at Harrison ripping on troy:
And then, of course, Harrison, the leader, steps forward and asks for a fan so that Polamalu's hair will poof just the right way when the cameras flash.

Laughter is a sound you hear a lot around the Steelers' complex these days because, in the NFL, laughter is the unmistakable sound of confidence, of swagger, of a team that's rapidly climbing its way up the postseason seeding ladder while the Giants and Titans around them try desperately to hold onto their Mo as it leaks out of their cupped hands like water.

Swagger indeed......

I can picture Harrison watching looney toons reruns completely stone-faced. That scares the crap outta me! :tt:


For some reason, I can too.

The only time I've seen Harrison crack a smile was after DeShea took in the INT for the score against Dallas. When Tomlin gave him a big hug he grinned for split second. :chuckle:

If I were to pick Harrison's cartoon of choice I would say Pink Panther..... another cool cat who also doesnt smile !
