Steel Curtain Or Steel Cage?

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Joey Porter had more to say today (shockingly), suggesting that he is going to make Seattle Seahawks players tap out of the game on Superbowl Sunday.

When I saw the headline, I was really hoping that Porter was using the wrestling expression "tapping out," as in giving a guy a sharpshooter, camel clutch, boston crab or figure-four leglock. Sadly, Porter only meant making players tap the top of their helmets, which is how they let the coaches know that they are tired and want to come out of the game. It's too bad, really. It would have been great fun to see him tag Troy "The Tonga Kid" Palamalu and do a Shooting Star Press off of Alan Faneca onto a prone Jerramy Stevens. Or maybe put a Texas Cloverleaf on Shawn Alexander. Sigh. Maybe Porter can attack Hall of Famer Pete Rose--WWE Hall of Famer Pete Rose-- at the next Wrestlemania. Ooh. Fingers crossed!

P.S. No one has commented on the lovely Joey Porter Dracula picture I made in the last post. That just stings.

Because you can hardly see his head, that's why -- the background is so dark. I didn't even notice you'd changed the picture until I read the comments.

That, and you're waaaaaay too needy.

It is totally easy to see. You must have pizza grease on your computer screen or something. You're just jealous of my brilliance, is all.

Actually, Kimmis, what happened is that your psyche is so fragile that you actually failed to accept that Andy burned Porter, who by chance plays for your Steelers.

I believe this is simply a matter of cognitive dissonance (Andy explained this to me yesterday). You've been such a degenerate in your love for the Steel that your mind rejects any mockery towards them, lest you see the error of your ways. (All right so I've bastardized the theory, but to make fun of Kimmis, it's worth it.)

Do you have "Sweet Shaun Alexander" playing in your head yet Kimmis? You will, you will.
