Hey, At Least It's Not About Brett Fav-ruh...


"Free at last. Free at last. Thank God almighty, I'm free at last!"

Not to take Martin Luther King Jr.'s wisdom in vain. But he's a smart dude. A lot smarter than my dumb ass. And well, that's how I feel right now, free. Although I still have a writing assignment due next Tuesday. So I'm not out of the proverbial woods just yet.

Still, yes friends, I am free...relatively. Two finals up, two finals down. Don't ask me how they went, because I ain't gonna tell you. Rule #1 I learned in law school was - never try to estimate how you did on an exam. Most of the time you have a 7%-8% chance of being right, and if you're superstitious like me, it isn't even worth it.

Anyways, back to your regularly scheduled Steelers programming...

So apparently 'Burgh native Mark Cuban returned to his alma mater the other night for what else, but a forum about these here internets. And while he was there, what do you suppose the Pittsburgh media asked him to comment on? The wide world of porn web? Yeah, right. Actually, it was the Steelers. Specifically, why he didn't want to invest in the team's ownership.

His rationale, you ask? Well, that'd be...

"The realities of environments -- where the cap is based upon total revenue, including local revenue of the league divided by the number of teams -- means that teams that can't generate local revenue as fast as the cap can go up..."
...Ah yes, it's a lot like "Star Trek: The Next Generation". In many ways it is superior, but will never be as recognized as the original...

I mean, what?

Dude, just say you didn't want to buy the team. I highly doubt anyone cares about your views on the Salary Cap. And to be honest with you, I think the Salary Cap is actually a good thing. Without it, we'd have a Dallas-New England Super Bowl every god damned year. And I know nobody wants to hear about Jessica Simpson and Giselle Bundchen for three hours...unless it involves hearing about them making out, that is. You know, that or watching them make out...either way.

So, I guess we can all rest easy knowing that Mark Cuban would rather pay 15 guys who toss a ball through a hoop out in the middle of Texas $84+ million dollars than own one of the proudest NFL Franchises. Great. That's just, great. I'm gonna go stick a fork in my eye, now. I'll see you in a minute.

Ah, it's good to be back. I missed you guys. What have you been up to? You're looking really buff! Wait, let me try that again. Hey guys, what did I miss? You're all still with me, right?

Hello?

Thanks buddy. You know I have been hitting the gym pretty hard recently. Two-A-Days cutting up my gluts, and other obscure muscle groups!
You look like someone who could use some sleep. Oh wait that's duderino.
2 weeks or so until the battle for central Pennsylvania.

Domski- Dude talk about a, "Clash of the Titans," right there!

Cotter - I totally dug it. Since you have been gone World Piece has established, and the federal government is run by the damn dirty apes that Charlton Heston hated so vehemently.
