Gratuitous Morning-After Zombie Commentary



At one point I actually caught myself saying, "Well, they are playing the defending champs, after all. And on the Steelers' home field, too...."

But by the end of the game I was slurring shouting saying, "Naw, Madden was right at the beginning. The pieces are slotting in but we're not there yet. Dammit."

UPDATE: The Sun'll Come Out - Tomorrow!!

Just the stuff leading up to the game was enough to make me turn off the tube. I'm an hour outside of P'burgh and it seemed like every sports bar here in OH and WV was Steelers crazy yesterday. The local news had correspondents at several bars...they don't hype Ohio State games this much!

The death of Pittsburgh's mayor didn't even get that much coverage.

Death is much less important than football.

I'm already dreading the hype of Manning vs. Manning on Sunday night.

My big fear, and last night reinforced it, is that the 'Fins go back to concentrating on the pass and neglect the run. That is the strategy that kept Marino from another Super Bowl. 38 yards on 18 carries is pathetic, no matter the defense you are playing against. If you have championship hopes, you need to be able to crank out more than 38 yards no matter the opponent.

Yeah, I actually caught myself thinking a little wistfully about Ricky.....
