The Cooler

What is the deal with Al Michaels? I swear to God, every time he says something complimentary of a team or a player, the EXACT OPPOSITE occurs. Tonight, he has already jinxed Steelers kicker Jeff Reed by noting how happy Reed must be to be kicking inside a dome instead of Heinz Field. Sure as shit, two seconds later, Reed missed the field goal. If you are ever in Vegas, and Michaels sits down at the table beside you, run for your life.

If wish I was any good at Photoshop. I would totally doctor this movie poster with info on Michaels and Monday Night Football. I would have Sam Ryan kissing Michaels, with John Madden downing a hoagie and looking angry in the backdrop.

In terms of the actual game, I am openly cheering for the Steelers. I hate the Steelers, but I just can't stand to see Peyton Manning win. He never has before, so I never needed to root against him. Now, with the Colts encroaching on the 1972 Dolphins, I am openly cheering against them, and him, every week. I still think the Colts defence is suspect, and I hate how Peyton never gets sacked. I wish LT was still playing, so that he could break the bastard's leg. Stupid audibles on the line.

No need to photoshop, you painted the picture well. Funnier than if you actually doctored the photo.

And Micheals is such a douche. He never criticizes anyone. The most you get is like when Roethlesberger ran an ill-advised QB draw on 4th and 4. To which Michaels responds, "I'm not sure if that's the right call there." Really? You think so? Thanks Al.

If it were me, I would have hurled a nugget of my own poop at Cowher from the booth.

That call, along with the on-side kick to start the half, were awful decisions by Cowher. He should have been spitting on himself for those two. Speaking of, my God, how much saliva can one man create? He should be in the porn industry, not coaching football.

I knew the game was over as soon as Reed missed that field goal. That would have made it 10-10, and a totally different ball game. The Steelers had finally slowed Manning down. He was looking confused and panicked, just like the old Peyton Manning. Damn Michaels.
