Default Ahhh, How Sweet it is. The next 2 weeks....

as an admitted NFL media junkie who reads all the articles, posts on messageboards, subscribes to nfl network and sirius nfl radio, actually enjoys ESPN, i must say that the 2 weeks leading up to the steelers in the superbowl are 2 of my favorite weeks of the year.

other than a blurb about a contract extension and a 1st team all pro nomination, i only heard the name tom brady or peyton manning once today.

not a single time did i hear or see the filthy ravens mentioned.

other than the superbowl being held in dallas, i didnt have to listen to jack shit about the cowboys, and before to long the overhyped jets will be nothing but a distant memory.

once again the steelers have the national spotlight for 2 (possibly 3) whole weeks. sure we have to share it with green bay, but atleast they arent any of the aforementioned teams.

i cant wait for media day. i love all the silly questions, the serious ones, the guys cutting lose, and james harrison being intimidating as all hell. i loved joey porter calling out jeremey stevens. im not worried about how ben will handle questions about his past. i look forward to hearing tomlin tell anyone who will listen that "the standard is the standard when we step into stadiums and defend every blade of grass".

3 times in 6 years.... not many teams fans have been so lucky. let alone twice in 2 different generations.

oh how sweet it is.

Yes it is, something that we all will cherish for the rest of our lives. I can't wait to see James Harrison at the Super Bowl press conference!

Well, between replaying parts of the game and watching ESPN all day, I think I've somewhat OD'd on Steeler stuff for now.

I think I'll chill for a day or two and then resume my Steeler fix in smaller, more manageable doses.

fiancee is going-through chemo, so her immune systems is depleted the next week/10 days, and here I am with a sinus infection



since my computer is in the garage, I'm listening to sports-radio from da Burgh 24/7, trying to maintain as-much-distance between us as possible, so I'm getting burned-out, too

Really? All I have been hearing is about that (bleep) ass and "did he" or "didn't he" quit. Jesus man, every (bleep) channel and radio channel, thats all they freakin talked about. I finally turned everything off. My god, who gives a crap about Jay Cutler and the Bears.
