Ok, Nate I will grant you the "H" makes all the difference.

Still, they lost to the Ravens, with 6 batmobile vehicles at Heinz field and the team wearing the retro uniforms and it just might as well have been in Texas.


But speaking Substitute QB  There was this moment to smile about

Leftwich’s career-long 31-yard touchdown run last night was the longest run by a Steelers’ quarterback since Ben Roethlisberger ran 31 yards on 11/21/10 vs. Oakland.

Yeah, those uniforms are fugly.  I think they're wearing them one more time for MNF.  

Here's a small consolation for Steeler fans:  If you give Pittsburgh the 3 1/2 points from Vegas, they win!

The Hot Links are still there. Pilgrim's Pride is now headquartered in Greeley, Colorado. Bo still lives there, though. And that's about it.

Except Pilgrim's Pride went under a couple years ago, got bought, I think by a Brazilian company, and is now just "Pilgrim's"

There's one of their plants in my town...that's how I know.

And South Pittsburg is in TN.  fwiw.

I thought the best comment of the night (regarding the uniforms) was at the opening when Al Michaels mentioned that "Pittsburgh will be wearing the 1934 throwback uniforms...as if the Depression wasn't bad enough." LOL
