Twenty Miles North of Waxing Eloquent


Yeah, Hines is back and it was time for me to check in on the local WTAE message board and see what the Hemingways (thanks Wojo) were saying about his return. The usual. You know, “Hines, you rock!” or “Hines is in the house tonight!”, and other eloquent elocution by loquacious Burghers.

Oh, but boys, NO ONE and I mean NO ONE takes Hines Ward so seriously as 20MI.NORTH.

And please, read this with the tune of “God Bless the USA” blasting in the background while waving a Steeler’s flag and holding your right hand across your heart, if at all possible.

Thank you Mr. Hines Ward for who you are. A man of heart, spirit, and great faith. A man not afraid to show his feelings. A man who truly loves his life, family, friends, supporters, and the game of which you are blessed to play. Thank you for rising above all of the controversy and rumors. Thank you for stepping up. Your mom worked hard to raise you. She taught you well. A thank you to “MOM” she’s the best. Time to put the past behind….Get on with what today holds, and let tomorrow take care of itself. All the best to you, your family, and teammates. Looking forward to a exciting season of football.

Sniff.

    You think 20 MI is open to contract work? Like eulogies?

    Too bad they weren’t around years ago. Yancey Thigpen’s career could have turned out so differently with that kind of support…
