Quoth The Wood, Nevermore...


Yes, you're right. I did use that post title on Friday. But since no one read it then, I'm re-using it now. My blog, my rules. 'Tis a beautiful thing.

T-minus just under four hours 'til kickoff and my stomach's been in knots since before lunch.

Who's with me?

Ray Lewis could kill my entire extended family and I wouldn't be able to hate him any more than I already do.

Christy said...

I can't remember the last time I've been this nervous about a game. It's only game 4, and I'm acting like the post season is riding on this game or somethin...

Gee, our "offensive" line couldn't have anything to do with that, could it?

Godspeed, Ben...

Cotter said...

tobiathan ~ Ok, you got me. I'm really just anxious for the Steelbiathan liveblog!

sheena ~ You say that as if you will actually be drinking at some point...oh, wait...that's your brother who's not drinking! Beer bong?

vern ~ Careful what you wish for...

Cotter said...

Oh, and Christy ~ one tends to get a little nervous when his or her QB is sacked EIGHT TIMES in one game...yeah, I hope those dudes are ready to block. God knows we ain't running the ball tonight (again, hope I'm wrong about this)!

Sheena Beaston said...

beer bong, yes please!

the faster i can get it in my gullet, the better

wait, that sounds terrible...

Cotter said...

No comment...

/pretends to know what the hell is going on

matt said...

I wish we could just blow up for like 40+ pts...

Sadly, I don't expect more than 13.

I need a shot and a beer, its only 5pm...

Wow....that's a tobiathan-level statement of dislike!

Rawk on, Vern!

I'm no fan of Stabby McMurderer myself. I think he's completely overrated and not nearly the "Gawdsend" at LB he's made out to be. The media seems to suck up to him outta pure fear.

Vern said...

If I drank an appletini everytime Ben got hit last week I'd probably be the gayest alcoholic in Florida. And that really would be saying something. Let's hope Willie Colon doesn't try out for Dancing With the Stars again this week.

Cotter said...

His dance partner? Kendall Simmons.

Cotter said...

And wait, you mean there's lots of gay people in Florida? Who knew?

tobiathan wants an effective offensive line said...

Did anybody see the article in the Post-Gazette about Max Starks and him not playing?-

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08271/915603-87.stm

Apparently Tomlin and the front office are at odds about Starks, i.e. Colbert/admin thinks Starks is a top-notch OT, but Tomlin doesn't. Interestingly they mentioon that Tomlin was the one who was adamant about signing and starting the not-so-dearly-departed Mr. Mahan.

Considering that we appeared to have a lot more success with Max as a starter it really doesn't add up why he's riding the pine...

..but maybe he won't tonight?

i have a feeling the steelers offense is going to break out tonite.

big ben has a tendency to bounce back after a disappointing game.

/hopefully i dont have to eat my words tomorrow.

Christy said...

"Stabby McMurderer"...hehe...Cotter should photoshop that.

Cotter said...

Ray Lewis is NOT worthy of my Photoshop skills. And for the record, I would still NOT party with Jeremy Shockey.

That is all at this time.

Cot-ter, end communication.

tobiathan said...

Off-topic but somewhat relevant-

J. Collier, JAX OT, who was shot in a late-nite incident a few weeks ago, is paralyzed from the waist down and has had a leg amputated. This according to NFLN.

Poor guy. I feel for his family, who will now have to care for him instead of the other way around. I'm glad our Steelers don't(usually. Lookin' at YOU, J-Peezy!) get caught up in the thug-life.

tobiathan said...

Richard Collier, not "J.". My bad.

Any opinions on the tonight's game? Or is everybody busy gettin' dronk 'nuff not to have a nervous breakdown? I know i'm drinking coffee like it's a whiskey-drink...

...mmmmmm....whiskey...how i miss ye so......
