This time tomorrow America's real team - the Pittsburgh Steelers - will be repeatedly planting their large and ferocious feet into the backsides of the Baltimore Ravens. New England is next! I HOPE WE DON'T KILL NOBODY. We got to have it this year! No force on earth can stop a moment whose time has come. To quote the right Reverend Jessie Lewis Jackson "our time has come."

Looks like America's real team - the Steelers - is one step from the Super Bowl again after the New England Cissyboys and Baltimore Ravens were beaten last week. We hated to do that to the Ravens, my second most favorite team behind the Steelers. The Cissyboys from Boston simply laid down on the Jets to keep from playing us this week. I ain't the kind to brag but if Queen, Donna, Golden Eagle, Todd and nem were smart enough to be Steelers fan they would still be in the hunt for the Super Bowl. And Todd had the nerves to ask me a few years ago why was I a Steelers fan? Why do birds fly and drunks drank. Because they can and the stuff is good to them. Duh! It's a wonderful thang that one can build America's grandest football stadium and have America's grandest football team play for the Super Bowl in that grand stadium at that grand hour before so many grand fans there and around the country. Go Dallas and take the Cowboys, Rangers and Mavericks with you.

Dr. S where is your new lineup for this week's games. I need to see my Steelers exhibited as one of 4 remaining team in the hunt to play in Dallas on Super Bowl weekend?

People do y'all mind if I talk to myself for a minute. Sunday evening the Steelers' nation and the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to jump all over Gothom City and the New York Jets. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as I will. The Jets' cornerbacks won't be able to slow down enough to stay with Ward or run fast enough to stay with Wallace. I wish it was Sunday already! Haters hate on.

Ladies and Gentlemen once again the Steelers are at home in the Super Bowl. This time we will walk the dog in Cowboy Stadium or should I call it our home away from home. The sport betters are making the Packers the favorite, but as most of you know, we don't care if we have to kick tail from down under or up over. One thing for sure come February 6, 2011 the Steelers are going to be kicking the Packers hind sides as if we're engaged in a one-sided mule kicking contest. I don't know what the Packers are supposed to be packing but I know it won't be nearly enough. Did y'all see how Ben Roughberger kept making great decision after great decision? Do y'all now see why we kept him despite those lies those 2 girls tried to tell on him. He is innocent and the facts and punishment meted out prove it. He's getting married now after realizing some women will do anything to bring down the mighty. Did y'all see him thanking the Lord, also a Steelers' fan, for being with him as he silenced his critics and haters. Lord, Lord , Lord. What a beautiful sight! I'm so glad Coach Tomlin and Mr. Rooney asked the Steelers to hold back some the second half to keep from embarrassing the Jets and hurting the feelings of the residents of Gotham, past and present. We calculated the second half perfectly to keep the rating high and Jets' fans hopeful. I wasn't worried at all at any point. Some people do and some people don't. The Steelers do. Jerry Jones was right. America's team will play in the 2011 Super Bowl in Cowboy Stadium. Young people did y'all see how the Jets were running off at the mouth before the game?Like the stone cold gentlemen we are we did our talking on the field where it counted. The Steelers' nation need this victory sorely so as to separate us from the 49ers and the cowboys as if 14 - 4 versus 12 - 4 hasn't already done that. Player hater said what? Cowboys' fans are now experiencing their worse nightmare by having two teams they hate and which owned them in the sixties and seventies run all over the funky star in the center of the field. I'm hearing both team have gotten together and agreed that no matter who wins some saliva, snot and/or fecal matter will be left on the field for posterity even if they have to wait until all fans are gone and sneak back to do it. After all the losses that occurred there this year these bodily wastes will be a step up and maybe the fertilizer will wake up the dead and moribund - the cowboys. Go Steelers. Yo Queen and Golden Eagle. How you like me now?

Peeps have y'all been reading the ugly blogs all across the country wherein Big Ben is being called Ben Rapistburger? This is so unchristian, cold and hateful. To hate what he has done to your favorite football team is one thing, but to hate for no reason is another thing altogether. I'm prayerful Ben keeps leaning on the Lawd and his football abilities to quiet all his critics and haters. If all goes well the haters will soon have to say Ben Rapistburger with 3 Super Bowl rings and counting. Come on Dr. S please put up your Super Bowl or next 7 days sport column. I got some news to lay on you. If the Aints were in the Super Bowl our so-called hotty Toddy would have done a column the same day. Since he's still a secret Cowboys' fan he won't do anything to highlight the Steelers continued dominance in the NFL. Can the Steelers Nation get some love at the JFP? Although that other dude won't come through I know you will Dr. S. because deep down you're a Steelers' fan too.

Walt - you guys are officially the hunted! Get over it - 8 Super Bowl appearances with 6 Lombardi trophies, chi' please - nice and kind goes out of the window, especially when your quarterback - gets called out for the same thing TWO TIMES. The Steelers are the luckiest som-a-biscuits I have ever seen in my life, case-in-example - The Rapist is on a motorcycle - and wrecks it! He only comes out with scrapes bruises and a busted jaw. Ha, the guy we drafted at tight end before him, wrecks his motorcycle - blows his knee out!? Go figure. Your team is on its way to another super bowl, you should care less what they call your quarterback, long as you make it there yes indeed

In nine more days the Steeler nation will put the ugly ass and president-killing Big D on the International stage once again, something the Dallas Cowboys and Jerry Jones are unable to do despite that big ole stadium. You don't get to play on the big stage when you wear laced and colorful thongs, bras and shorty, shorty pants like the Dallas Cowgirls and Dallas Cowboys do. Nall, to play with the big boys like the Packers and Steelers you have to put on wool drawers, long johns, long-legged pants and lace your shoes while standing up, not sitting or laying down like the Cowboys do. Come 6 something pm February 6, 2009, the Steelers are going to be packing a great tail whooping onto the Packers. I'm hearing Dallas is running out of strippers for the Super Bowl due to the Cowboys putting them all on salary so as to make some money that weekend. Dallas is looking for strippers in case anyone needs a job. The Steeler players won't be going to any strip clubs. The Cowboys won't succed at setting us up and sabotaging the game. I know the entire Dallas area hate the Packers too, but they hate us more. We gonna take care of bizness and leave that funky hole in the ground. We out.

Yo Duan, my frat. bro., we ain't lucky, we're just good. I'm also hearing cab drivers are thinking about striking in order to force a raise in pay. We don't need any cab drivers. We will get to Cowboy Stadium by planes, trains, automobiles, bicycles, walking or crawling. Our time has come. I'll be there too. I won some tickets for reprenting the Steeler nation so well in Mississippi against so much hate and jealousy. Thanks Duan for chiming in. The Cowboys fans around here have lost their voices. Duan you ought to come in from the cold and join up with us at the Steeler nation. You won't continue to be so black, brown and blue from losing so much. We want it all.

Update!!! This morning somebody planted a suspicious package near Cowboy Stadium and the Wal-Mart. I was temporarily thinking some Cowboy of Cowboys' fan had decided they rather rock Cowboy Stadium with dynamite than see us - the Stteler Nation do it on February 6, 2011 starting around 6 pm with the whole world looking on. The FBI checked out the matter and learned it was merely a bag of dope that apparently slide out of someone cargo accidentially. Upon further check it turned out the dope was lost from an 18 Wheeler being driven into town by Michael Ervin, Nate Newton and Quincy Carter. All three were subsequently arrested and it turned out all of them claimed they didn't know the rig was loaded down with drugs. Michael Ervin said it must have belonged to someone else because he only carries drugs to smoke or snort, not sale. Eight more days before Super Bowl.

Four more days before the Steelers commence business in Dallas. I don't like media day wherein we have to be nice, talk to reporters, pretend we don't hate the cowboys or Packers, and answer stupid questions. How many time will the media ask Ben if he's a changed and improved man. Again, Ben is innocent. You can't wait until the man puts his clothes back on, tells you he ain't got no money on him, refuse to spend the night with you, say bye bye, and turn the door knob before you scream rape or sexual assault. And you can't kiss him, put your arms around him, and tell him you love him before calling the police. This doesn't look like rape or sexual assdault. Now that media day is over, we got to get with the business of hating the cowboys and Packers. Indeed we're playing both, and both of them have been talking about our mothers, wives and baby girls. Our wives and mothers are grown but our baby girls are still infants and we can't tolerate the dissing and calling them out their names. The Packers and all of Texas got to pay for this. We hate all of Texas and know they hate us too. We used to kick the Houston Oilers rumps on a regular basis until we ran them out of Texas. The Cowboys are next. The fact that they're dead already is no solace to us. Sunday night we plan to silence all of our haters including all the women who hate us because of Ben the lover Roughburger. Four mo' days and we rumble. We call it GETTING CALLOUS IN DALLAS! I'm a poet.
