  •  If it's in WI, it better be a damned good speech. (8+ / 0-)

    Those folks are not in the mood for prevarication and evasion.

    And the Pack is on the union side.

      I'd pay a truly stupid amount of money to see that happen at that game at that stadium.

      only 97 years left on the waiting list for tickets.

          turn-overs, the Steelers were still in a position to win the game.  Bitter?  You're damn right, lol.

            is unbecoming such a storied franchise. I'm sure if we'd have lost we would have been dignified and polite.

            Can't hold a straight face for that.

            You have to admit though, that giving the speech at/around that game

            I rewatched the game for the first time since it was played, just last week.  I was dumbfounded how the Steelers lost, they were in a position to win the game repeatedly in the 4th quarter, in spite of such horrific fortune in turnovers, Polamalu's ankle, Pouncey not playing, etc, etc.

            I love both teams.

            Steelers are my team on the AFC side.

            I don't really agree Pack was gifted the game, but I guess YMMV.

          •  I mean, remember that the Pack (0+ / 0-)

            had horrific injuries and a short bench at the time of that game.
