Drooling on the Pillow

27-17, Pittsburgh 

We had a nice little system going. The one other Steeler fan among the parents at Gracie's school and his family would come over, we'd watch the game and I would cook dinner. The wives would yak and Vanessa would distract Grace from the fact that absolutely no one was paying any attention to her.

This arrangement was responsible for three straight amazing playoff victories. Today, however, some spawn of the devil has invited Vanessa to a birthday party at four o'clock on Superbowl Sunday. I know. I know. Tom will be here, but Barbara and Vanessa will not. The Men of Steel will have to win this one with a crippled mojo.

I'm not going to name names, because at some point this 'man' is going to wake up in the middle of the night wondering "What the hell was I thinking? His name is Brent Deal. It would be somebody named Brent, wouldn't it?

Update: As TigerHawk points out in comments, I had the spread pretty close and, aside from Rothlinsberger's Neil O'Donnell moments, it was an entirely satisfactory evening. It was ugly, but very Steelers.
