Are the Pittsburgh Steelers officially in "oh sh*t" mode? It's starting to feel that way. Okay, so I go into every season with the Steelers feeling a rather healthy dose of pessimism, but I knew this one was going to be particularly bad.
I look forward to the day when I am not so annoying to Hannah anymore -- either because I earn my cool card back or because she herself ends up in the Annoying Moms Club thanks to the actions of her own children. But until then, I'll enjoy the company of all the other moms who are members.
So, enjoy the food and alcohol with the families for now, Steelers fans, you'll need it. We have all winter and summer to discuss all the ways in which we suck. I'll be sure to refresh you on what happens next week against the Browns, and say a final farewell to this awful, awful season.
It's taken weeks, but the Steelers have finally won two games in a row. Sure, the Washington Redskins haven't been a threat in years, but with upcoming star quarterback Robert Griffin III, and the Steelers somewhat ailing defense, this could have been a close one.
When the finely honed bodies of elite athletes break down, these players' compulsion to get back in the game sometimes can lead them to embrace medical procedures that eventually may benefit the duffers among us and more.
