Well, it's 6 pm. Last day of my Christmas/New Year's mini-vaca. I've been chillin' today, found time to watch the '04 Steelers @ Jags game (one of my favorites, a masterpiece performance/4th quarter win by rookie Roethlisberger). For the last 45 minutes or so, I've been reading various articles in the PG & Trib along with various fan tributes, and I must tell you... I've already got a lump in my throat. 

I hope he comes back for another year, although I realize it's unlikely. 

First things first. Gonna do my best to enjoy what's left of this special era of Steelers football (even in a down season like this one). And make no mistake, Ben Roethlisberger is special.

Go get a win tonight, Ben. Go, Steelers! Pi_sharpteeth Pi_heartbeating Rockon

Checking in and reporting for duty. I see the Steelers taking this game. The Steelers are money in prime time at home. The all time great Steelers should be on hand and I envision a circus like atmosphere.

Haven't had nerves like this before a game in a long time. 

Team needs to get it done. Defense, STOP the run. Receivers, CATCH the ball. O-line, PROTECT your quarterback. 

No turnovers.

Ben... IGNORE Canada.  Laugh

It's nice to see the Brownies in a classic Brownie-away look though - instead of that weird, orange-shadow crap
