Big Game Commentary
If I write "Super Bowl", will they sue me? :D
Ok, first of all, I want to congratulate the Steelers on their win! And their fans on keeping their cool. LOL Yeah, right. :D
However, two words come to mind when I think of that game - "BAD CALLS"...not just against the Seahawks (Excuse me, but that sure didn't look like pass interference; should have been a touchdown for Seattle), but against the Steelers, too (actually, not against; did the ball cross the plane?).
I just hate bad calls, no matter if they're against the Cowboys (dreaming, here) or against the Raiders (ugh, I take that one back). It kind of ruins the game for me, and makes me think about what might have been.
Then, that Steeler does that thing (while taking a hit from a Seahawk) in which many gymnasts have won gold medals - the legs flipping backwards, almost touching the back of his head. The last thing it shows before a commercial break is the guy grabbing his lower back, kicking and screaming! Yikes! Return from commercial, and there was no comment from Al or John! What the...?? Did he live or what? LOL
Next, Polamalu - great defensive player, not such a great sport (in my very humble opinion). I saw 3 incidents at the end of play - 1)late hit (shove) to a Seahawk from behind, 2)Seahawk kicked in the head while down on the field (a sort of stumble from Polamalu, "Oops, didn't see ya there..."), and 3)straddling Seahawk after play, not letting him up (official finally shoved him off).
That kind of stuff just leaves me cold, really. I hate the Raiders for doing stuff like that (in general, as a team thing :D), and it's a shame to see such a great player resort to stuff like that.
Bettis, though, is one class act! He doesn't need to pull that carp. Maybe he did when he was younger, and he finally grew out of it. Here's hoping Polamalu does the same. :)
On a side note, I was thinking to myself, "Hasselbeck sure is purdy!" *sigh* Then he took off his helmet. HEL-lo! Yikes! LMAO!!
Ok, I'm done! :D
