What they’re really thinking: Kickoff Edition 2006

Can I get a “Hell yeah!”?

My thoughts on the awesome game:

1. I now have some faith in Charlie Batch, fumble and all.  As MSNBC so perfectly put it:

Charlie Batch outplayed Daunte Culpepper. Outplayed? He was Ali to Culpepper’s Wepner. He was rock to Culpepper’s scissors. He was windshield to Culpepper’s bug.

2. Corey O’Connor still rocks. Still hot. Still needs some Dippity Do.

3. Santonio “Asshat” Holmes really made no impression on me other than his first quarter catch in traffic and his big rookie no-no of catching a punt on the 4 and then slipping as he tried to run. If you were an expert lip reader such as I am, you would have seen Bill Cowher say to him: “I don’t care what you have to do, but your job … you MUST get that ball to the 20.” Word.

4. This game was ripe with man love:

5. I was stunned when Nate Washington pulled in that touchdown pass. In fact, I pretty much looked like this guy:

6. And how about Heath Miller? Running, and running, and running. Who knew he could run like that? Of course he seems to have come out of bounds near the 1 yd line, but the Miami coach waited too long to throw his challenge flag.

    Awesome WIN! the NC chapter of Steeler Nation met at the only place in Fayetteville to play Steelers games and cheered them on into public drunkeness. Charlie Batch pulled a clutch game part of my man love goes to him the rest of it goes to the silent giant Heath Miller! WOOT!

    How come there was no TV coverage of Corey O’Connor doing the Terrible Towel Wave??

    I had to listen to the 4th quarter on the radio. The way Stan, Tunch, and Woflie were describing it, Cowher and Porter were going gnawing on each other’s lower lip and groping each other’s asses. I’m guessing they got a little carried away, but if you can post a vidcap of The Kiss, let ‘er rip.
