Super Bowl Blogasm

Hello from the Super Bowl. Just wanted everyone to know Doyel is wearing his tight T-shirt again, showing off is alleged guns.

I'll be blogging all day from here.

Unless Doyel's fake guns knock me unconscious.

Nice T-shirt Two G's. Way to get dressed up.

In the meantime I'll leave you with this thought: Are the Pittsburgh Steelers America's Team?

If they win, how could they not be?

Andre Reed Should be in the Hall

The Hall of Fame voters, as they often do, did a superb job with the Hall of Fame voting. Most of the time the voters make the right call.

But they're making a mistake with former Buffalo wide receiver Andre Reed.

He deserves to get in on talent alone. He's fifth all-time with 951 career receptions and ninth in total receiving yardage with 13,198. So in catches and yardage he's top 10. He was, at times, devastating to defenses.

I covered a large portion of his career and there were few wide receivers of his generation that scared defenses like Reed did.

The problem I have with Reed being kept out is that all of the other great Bills are going in. Bruce Smith, Jim Kelly, Marv Levy, Thurman Thomas and Ralph Wilson are now all Hall of Famers.

I'm not sure how you can put all of those outstanding Bills in and keep out Reed.

Reed was as big a part of that Buffalo dynasty as any of those players.

I believe this was his fourth attempt to get in. I get the feeling he might end up being the only Bill not to make it.

And that's just wrong.

Michael Irvin is a Hound Dog

TAMPA, Fla. -- A very funny scene emerged tonight on radio row here at the Super Bowl.

I was on Pete Prisco's show this afternoon (the one that's a ratings success and should go national...but I digress). Michael Irvin was on a show not far from our table. When Irvin was done, he came close to where Prisco and I sat.

In front of us was an attractive young woman sitting at a different table, texting and minding her own business.

Irvin spotted her and like a heat seeking missile moved towards her. When he got close, Irvin made eye contact with her.

Irvin then mouthed to the woman: "Sexy."

She giggled awkwardly then turned her head. She wasn't interested.

The last time I saw Irvin make a smooth move like that was against the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC title game.

Nice try, Mike.

Are the Steelers Working Hard or Cocky?

TAMPA, Fla. -- First, Ben Roethlisberger showed up about 10 minutes late to his scheduled meeting with the media on Thursday.

Then, coach Mike Tomlin was late for his final press conference on Friday before a certain little game on Sunday. He apologized for his tardiness.

Maybe they were watching film or meeting. Or maybe the Steelers are getting a little cocky, taking things for granted, believing the fact they're heavy favorites.

It's probably the former but it's unusual -- for a head coach in particular -- to show up noticeably late for the last press conference. This is approximately my 15th Super Bowl (I've lost count) and coaches have arrived late before but it's extremely rare.

Ken Whisenhunt managed to show up on time, Mr. Tomlin.

And Whisenhunt didn't wear jeans, either. Would it kill you to wear a suit, Mike?

Cocky or working hard?

Probably working hard. Very hard.

But we'll see on Sunday.

Media Day Blogasm: Just About Over


It's winding down. Just a few minutes left.

I have to go now.

I want to hurry up and get in position so I can snap a picture of Two G's and the man in the red dress leaving together.

Media Day Blogasm: Jerk Moment of the Afternoon

About 30 minutes left in this wonderful extravaganza of taste and journalism.

Jerk moment of the day. There's a Marine Corps NCO here doing interviews. Most people and players are being very respectful to the Marine (as they should) exceot for one NFL Network producer.

When the Marine tried to interview a Steeler, the Marine was shooed away by an NFL Network producer, because one of their talent was about to interview the player.

I would have liked to see that Marine go Iwo Jima on that foof producer.

Media Day Blogasm: Warren Sapp = Walter Kronkite

Watching Sapp interview Santurdio Holmes was a real treat. Like watching Lauer or Couric except, well, not really.

Sapp is indeed losing weight but that doesn't mean he's still light. We he got up from talking to Holmes, that part of the stadium floor literally moved. Not kidding.

Now, Steelers players are glaring at that woman's butt. One word fellers: subtle.

Ross the Interns is again flaunting his gayness, this time hugging Steelers players.

The players look so amazingly comfortable with that. Because gay and NFL go hand in hand.

Like Two G's and tight T-shirts.

Media Day Blogasm: Entertainment Tonight


The Steelers are getting interviewed and Big Ben is running off at the mouth.

Kevin Frazier from ET is here. Grew up with him, good hoops player, makes the state of Maryland proud.

Two G's says he's ripping me in his blog. I wouldn't know. Like most people, haven't read two G's since the late '80s.

Pittsburgh assistant coach Bruce Arians on Big Ben: "When he was younger we had some very strong leaders on the offense. Now, it's his offense."

Just don't crap the bed again in the Super Bowl, Ben.

Again, the sedate nature of the media here cannot be understanted. People aren't acting the fools en masse this year.

Probably, that's a good thing.
