Playoffs and Things  
Wee! Got to watch my first Steelers game all season, with Ellie and Remy. Ellie was ever the gracious hostess and has a lovely home, and we finally also got to meet her boyfriend Barry, who is a very cool guy. But of course, the best thing was seeing the Steelers turn a ten-point deficit into a fourteen-point victory over the Bungles! Weeeee! =D

The best play by far was the Randle-El/Roethlisberger double reverse to Cedrick Wilson for a TD, though I also loved all of The Bus' runs and the Polamalu interception/lateral pass at the end of the game, which redeemed his first half screwup. I knew the Bengals would choke in a game that really mattered. Yeah, true, they lost Palmer early, but Kitna was more than holding his own 'til the Steelers kicked it up a notch. Cinci lost this one on their own. ;)

This week is gonna be rough- Poughkeepsie Tuesday, Manhattan Wednesday, Rensselaer Thursday. But there's going to be a Friday the 13th party at Jason's apartment on Elm Street. How perfect is that?

Watching a game with a crowd like that is always amazing. Remember that come-from-behind playoff victory against the Browns a season or two ago? I got stuck working retail that day, but the mall at which I worked (Galleria in Mt. Lebo- I also worked at Station Square, as a note) was practically deserted. That's because most everyone there had gathered at the cigar shop, where they had the game on (as they do every Sunday). I wound up locking up my store to run to the cigar store and catch the end of it, when the Steelers pulled it off- and even though we were just a bunch of strangers standing there, we went nuts jumping up and down and hugging each other. It was a really neat moment of cameraderie. =)

'Course, my parents, being the lucky ducks they are, were at that game. ;)

Wish The Giants could have pulled that off.

It's the Giants. Did you go in expecting anything less than a choke? I love em, but they love to do this to me!

Here we go, Steelers, here we go...Pixburgh's goo-in to da Super Bowl! n'at...

That game was AWESOME (at least, it was by the end of the second quarter through the rest of the game...it was like something snapped in their heads to get in the game). I loved the awesome plays we unleashed yesterday, too! Ben said they've been practicing that double reverse since LAST SEASON but never tried it out until yesterday! Glad they saved it for a game that was worthy of such greatness! I loved chatting with you guys at half time, too, that was teh coolness!

Ohh, and by the way, Ellie ROCKS! I cannot WAIT to enjoy a game with you all sometime soon! She's such an awesome chickie, not just for being a huge football fan, but for many, many reasons! Ellie, can't WAIT to meet you, dear! =)

I think that "something" that snapped in their heads them upside their heads was the back of Cowher's right hand, lol! You know Polamalu got chewed out for that unsportsmanlike call. All's well that ends well, though- he and Cowher had a special moment after the interception, hehe ;)

I'm glad we got to chat too, sweetie! I hope you and Mom and Ray had fun! =D

I also hope Bettis' mom gets another Chunky Soup commercial... she was too cute ^_^

That was SO uncalled for on Polamalu's part...I was so disappointed in him when that happened. I thought to myself, "Come ON, baby, put your balls back in your pants and play some football!" "Hey, you want to beat him? Beat him on the field!" Hehehe! Ohh well, he most certainly made up for it, and you're right, the special moment between him and Cowher was so sweet! And Bettis' mom ROCKS--that was so cute seeing everyone around high fiving her when we put it in the end zone! Here's to Bettis/Mama Bettis as opposed to McNabb/Mama McNabb! =)

You rock too darling!! You've got to come to Albany and we've got to play some nerf. It's nerf or nothing (literally!) :)
