Overtime win 29-23 January 9, 2012

Posted by yourcousin in Sport.

I wanted to broaden the horizon of some folks who might otherwise get an opportunity to watch American football.  Who am I kidding?  I only know one Steelers fan and I already texted her to gloat.

Dave Zirin won’t be pleased.

This is a brave, unexpected and welcome move in a new direction.

Now, explain the offside rule again YC? 😉

The excellent Dave Zirin’s written about it already. One of those results it was almost impossible to see coming.

From Mr. Zirin
“This weekend Tebow is going to be fed to the Steelers, a unit that covets nothing less than his destruction. At long last he will be a victim, but not of ‘haters.’ Instead he’ll be at the bottom of a pile of black and gold, victimized by the blind lust of his supporters and his own arrogant pride.”

Wow, a little animus there. Makes this posting all the sweeter which was the point. That and the fact that I still haven’t gotten sick of rewatching that clip. And for the record Big Ben got sacked multiple times yesterday while Tebow wasn’t sacked once.

The Patriots will surely crush the Broncos and cheer him up. I really like Zirin, his books are uniformly excellent, but he’s become a bit Javert pursuing Valjean about Tebow.

which of zirin’s books would you recommend read first for the uninitiated?

I’ve been waiting for the What you want to say thread. But I can’t wait any longer. So this one fits, sort of.
Who will Trapp bring to Poland? There will be 23 players on the panel. I suggest that the following are certs, barring injury:
Goalkeepers: Given, Westwood, Murphy
Defenders: Kelly, O’Shea, St.Ledger, Dunne, Ward, O’Dea
Midfielders: Duff, Whelan, Andrews, Fahey, Hunt, McGeady, McCarthy
Strikers: Keane, Doyle, Long, Walters, Cox
Which by my count leaves 2 more places. Suggestions anyone? I’m talking about who Trapp will bring not who you would like him to bring, if you follow. O’Dea and McCarthy above might be in the probable rather than certs. Have I left anyone obvious out?
