CD's comment, IM'd from Seattle where he's spending the week at CalConnect, was "Red zone play is awful." This has been going on all season. The best offense in the NFL was the Pittsburgh defense. All that was missing tonight was a Polamalu interception. And I have to mention CD's interest in football of the American sort has been growing slowly but steadily in the years since he moved here. This year it was different. Hands were raised and voices raised in cheer during the playoffs. It's really something to see, especially if you are acquainted with my husband. I think he supported my decision to let Oliver watch the game. He wanted to make sure Oliver was taking it all in. I'm sure he didn't count on him being exposed to Bruce Springsteen.
Contrary to what I was told, my kids did not receive terrible towels with their birth certificates. I will fix that oversight this week. Pittsburgh is our adopted city and we've never been prouder to call it home, Lukey Effingstahl and all.
And finally, Phil will see his shadow tomorrow. No doubt about it. And no one in SixBurgh will care.
