pissang beat me to making a final comment, as I imagined he would, but, as my grandfather was fond of saying, "Unglaublich!" I wonder if the fix will be on for the Dolphins game if New England is still undefeated. . .

Re: unglaublich

That's a good song, even if EMF soon thereafter repaired to the proverbial dustbin of history. And that old dude can still shake it!

i know, can't he just!
i like cover versions in general, and he twists the song gently just by being himself.

It is good to have Certainty...

New England is playing the Steelers next week, so they will not be undefeated whenever they take on the Dolphins. That is, unless they conspire with the referees to make it appear as if the Steelers have lost. Whether they are 12-1 or 13-0* after next week, a New England Miami game would be fun to watch. Games where one team is massively superior always bring out the rage in the inferior team, and they often inspire the superior team to do things like... fake punts or "go for it" on 4th down often.

* Actually lost to Steelers, but a conspiracy of gay referees made it look like they won.

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

I agree with this comment completely! Go Steelers!

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

Well, how could you not agree? To not agree would be to openly embrace insanity. It would be like looking into the sun and calling it night. The Steelers win every game they play. The fact that the "record" and "standings" sometimes do not reflect this fact is often confusing to those who are divorced from reality... Let us look at the Steelers record this year:

It's "9-3", which to the outsiders gives the appearance that the Steelers "lost" three times. Nothing could be further from the truth. Let us look at the true circumstances surrounding this "3", one digit at a time:

First "loss": 14-21 v. the Cardinals. You can't "lose" to the Cardinals. This is like the Yankees losing to a team of Geisha Girls, or a rabbit losing a race to a tortoise. Maybe in a story it could happen, but not in real life. A careful review of the videotape demonstrates sufficiently that the Stadium Management was utilizing a system of mirrors and large magnifying glasses to literally cook The Steelers where they stood. If that's how you want to win, Saint Louis Cardinals, then enjoy your time in HELL!

Second "loss": 31-28 v. The Broncos. Again, using magnets, the Broncos drained oxygen out of the air near the Steelers bench. Did no one notice the huge "heaters" the Broncos provided the Steelers? Magnets! Oxygen sucking magnets! Also, the referees were gay.

Third "loss": 19-16 v. The Jets. Did no one notice that the entire Jets team was armed with pistols? They were openly firing handguns on the playing field! For God's sake! And even against a well-armed opponent, the Steelers managed to get 16 points. The crowd was filled with Snipers. It's insane!

So, you see, magnifying glasses, magnets, snipers. The Steelers are 12-0 this season, bringing their career record to 983-0-2 (two 0-0 ties in the fifties).

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

Not to mention that they managed to prevail despite the fact that the Dolphins kept peeing on the field.

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

I am only dimly aware of non-Steeler football teams... I believe the Dolphins once had a quarterback (from Pittsburgh) who failed to commit ritual suicide when he was not drafted by the Steelers. Also, when a team reaches 0-12, they should be required to change their uniform to a pinafore and diapers. Also they should be required to "hutt" the ball from atop a lace doily on every down. We need RULES!

If you don't already know flw, you might well want to do so because, in addition to being a ____ist, he is a former denizen of Pittsburgh, PA.

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

I would have picked the Steelers, but the fact that the Patriots have looked dreadful two weeks in a row makes me think that they are due to return to form. Plus, they have Randy Moss and wasn't he once from that "rival" state to the west of P-Town?

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

You may not know this, but Steelers fans hate the Patriots more than any other team. We pretend to hate the Browns, but really... we trounce them every time. Who cares about the Browns. The Patriots, however, are truly despised. They have mastered the arts of trickery, deception, and all around communist non-sensery.

That wouldn't be same cadre of referees who called Super Bowl XL, would it? (said with a smile!)

Re: It is good to have Certainty...

heh heh heh! I laughed out loud! Indeed. What may appear to a Seattle fan to be a grave injustice, is actually a true and just righting of the scales. Never in the History of Humanity has a game been more fairly officiated than Super Bowl XL... comments to the contrary in my livejournal, notwithstanding. All I know is this, when Cowher objects, it is right, when Holmgren objects it is wrong. I don't know why non-Steelers fans can't understand simple concepts like, "When the Steelers are playing, we are bad and wrong." Is it too much to ask? When a non-Steeler team plays another non-Steeler team in one of those practice games that don't involve the Steelers, then you can root for your team...

Honestly, it was a really close call between Fuuuuuuuuck!! and Unglaaaaaaaaauuuuuublich!!.

I don't like when people blame losses on the zebras because bad calls are part of the game, but man I want to blame the refs for that one. It hurts so bad.

I know what you mean. The foul on Rolle was the most egregious, to my mind. The timeout was Ryan's fault, though the officials sure seemed eager to acknowledge his plea.
