Pittsburgh 21, Seattle 10 (final)
How great would it be if there was an “I’m going to Disney World” commerical with Charlie Batch all ready to roll? Not so funny for Hines Ward, perhaps, the real MVP of Super Bowl XL (5 catches, 123 yards, 1 TD) but we can always fantasize. How would the Steelers’ season have turned out had Ward’s preseason hold-out not been resolved to his satisfaction? I’m pretty sure it would’ve killed his Senatorial campaign before it started.
If nothing else, tonight’s result guarantees that the gentleman above won’t have to wear a shirt until September.
I don’t wanna say that I was easily tempted by all of the advertisements for online gambling sites that you can find on a very unfunny sports blog, but you could get pretty good odds this morning on Meredith Hunter returning a kick for a TD.
