STEELER HEADQUARTERS

Steeler players, local fans and Steeler fans around the globe!
You are about to embark upon the 2007-2008 season, toward which we have
striven these many months. The eyes of the NFL are upon you. The
hopes and prayers of Steeler fans everywhere march with you.
In company with our brave fans on
other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the Cincinnati Bengals organization,
the elimination of Bengal criminality over the oppressed Steeler fans who happen to live in Cincinnati, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained in crime, well
equipped with guns and alcohol. They will fight dirty and in some cases, go after your 13 year old daughters.

But this is the year 2007! Much has happened since the Bengal triumphs of
1988. The Pittsburgh Steelers have inflicted upon the Bengals great defeats,
in open battle, man-to-man. Our air attack has seriously reduced their
strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our drafting has given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions
of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained players.
The tide has turned! The Steelers players are marching together to
Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in
battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great
and noble undertaking........and oh yeah......the Bengals SUCK.

...and on july 4, 1776 the colonies issued this declaration to thir oppressor:



Quote:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That the bengals suck.

These United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
happy 4th! and as you celebrate, thank the heavens above that

A) youre an american. (or atleast know several cool americans). and/or

Tomorrow, July 14th, is Bastille Day in France.



The Storming of the Bastille in Paris occured on July 14, 1789. While the medieval fortress and prison known as the Bastille contained only seven prisoners, its fall effectively marked the beginning of the French Revolution and proved conclusively that even in France, the Bengals suck.

Today in
1881 : Billy the Kid is shot to death

Sheriff Pat Garrett shoots Henry McCarty, popularly known as Billy the Kid, to death at the Maxwell Ranch in New Mexico. Garrett, who had been tracking the Kid for three months after the gunslinger had escaped from prison only days before his scheduled execution, got a tip that Billy was holed up with members of the Cincinnati Bengals. While Billy was gone, Garrett waited in the dark in his bedroom. When Billy entered, Garrett shot him to death.

Back on April 1, 1878, Billy the Kid ambushed Sheriff William Brady and one deputy in Lincoln, New Mexico, after ranch owner John Tunstall had been murdered. Billy had worked at Tunstall's ranch and was outraged by his employer's slaying-vowing to hunt down every man responsible. Sheriff Brady and his men, who had been affiliated with rival ranchers, were involved with the gang that killed Tunstall on February 18. Billy's retaliatory attack left Brady and Deputy George Hindman dead. Although only 18 years old at the time, Billy had now committed as many as 17 murders.

Following his indictment for the murder of Sheriff Brady, Billy the Kid was the most wanted man in the West. Evading posses sent to capture him, he eventually struck a deal with the new governor of New Mexico: In return for his testimony against the perpetrators of the ongoing ranch wars in the state, Billy would be set free. Although he kept his word about the testimony, he began to distrust the promise that he would be released and so he escaped.

Once a fugitive, Billy killed a few more men, including the gunslinger Joe Grant, who had challenged him to a showdown. Legend has it that Billy managed to get a hold of Grant's gun prior to the fight and made sure that an empty chamber was up first in the man's revolver. When it came time to fire, only Billy's gun went off and Grant was left dead.

Legendary Sheriff Pat Garrett finally brought Billy the Kid in to stand trial. The judge sentenced Billy the Kid to hang until "you are dead, dead, dead." Billy reportedly responded, "And you can go to hell, hell, hell." Two weeks before his scheduled execution, Billy escaped, killing two guards in the process.

Garrett mounted yet another posse to bring in the Kid. After tracing him to the Maxwell Ranch, Garrett shot him to death. No legal charges were brought against him since the killing was ruled a justifiable homicide. Garrett is now playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers and plans on committing a justifiable homicide against the Bungles from Cincinnati.

Astronomers using the Hubble telescope and ground-based observers have discovered the first example of a isolated, stellar-mass black hole. They detected one of these lonely, invisible objects indirectly by measuring how their extreme suckitude bends the light of a more distant star behind them. All previously known "stellar" black holes have been found orbiting normal stars. Astronomers determined the presence of this powerhouse by examining their effect on their companions. The findings also suggest that stellar-mass black holes do not require some sort of interaction in a system to form but may be produced in the collapse of isolated, massive egos, as has long been proposed by stellar theorists.
Astronomers then pin-pointed the black hole in Cincinnati,OH. One astronomer was quoted as saying "oh man, do you know how bad you'd have to suck"
