Run Ben, RUN!

Ed Bouchette touched on what PittGirl has been thinking since Sunday … why isn’t Benny running?

Bill Cowher delivered a message to his quarterback yesterday, borrowing a line from Forrest Gump: Run, Ben, Run!


How many times on Sunday did you see Benny standing in a pocket looking for a receiver, find none, the pocket opens up, there’s a big opening in front of him, and the big yellow line just. Right. There! Go get it, Ben. Run for that stinking yellow line (yes, I know he can’t really see it shut up) like the scientologists are after you. Run for that line like Paris Hilton is hot on your heels with her skirt hoisted up. Run for that line like Martha Fleishman is behind the wheel of a car and totally gunning for your ass. Run like the pigeons are after you. Just run.

Ben also said:

“I feel a lot better. I’m working out and really feel good where I’m at. Coach wants me to put on a little bit more weight, but I feel good with where I’m at right now.”

Said Cowher, “We’ve talked about it. I am encouraging him to make sure he eats snacks at night.”

Don’t listen to him Ben. Bill Cowher is NOT always right. Hell, need I remind you of his moronic Colclough decision? You look a lot better.

And man, I would love someone to encourage me to eat snacks at night. Just to you know, give me a reason to eat a Little Debbie Swiss Roll … or as I call it, heaven rolled up with icing.

Benny was asked if perhaps his head injury was affecting his play:

“It’s hard to say. The doctor said nothing’s wrong with my brain, and it seems like I’m having brain [cramps] out there. It’s just one of those things, you make mistakes and you learn from it and, hopefully, I will learn quickly from those mistakes.”

Can I ask you all a question? Why will the PG use the word “shit” but it uses ellipses to replace the word “fart”? That makes zero sense. He said “brain farts.” You know he did. Yet, there is more than one article in the PG that has used the word “shit.”

But back to the subject … Run, Ben! Run!!!

    I believe I have consumed enough of both to weigh-in with an expert opinion on this issue: a Ho-Ho is clearly superior cake-roll snack compared to the Little Debbie variant.

    Of course, if Cowher *really* wanted him to bulk up, there’s always John Belushi’s breakfast of champions: Little Chocolate Donuts and cigarettes

    On a purely shallow note, don’t gain any weight, Ben! Between the dropped pounds and the face-off, I think I’m in lurve.

    The worst has been when he starts to run, then pulls up just before the line of scrimmage and chucks the ball downfield!!! ARRRGH!

    Has anybody out there ever had the chocolate “Puddng Pie” from Hostess?

    I know, that sounds vaguely obscene, but they’re loaded into the vending machine in the kitchen at work. It’s a big decision.

    Hands down best ever? Raspberry Zingers. That shit’s practically gourmet n’at.

    I had an assistant once who swore that if I ate a Raspberry Zinger I would be hooked for life. It was okay I guess, but a lot of people sure love those puppies.

    Re the “Pudding Pies”-

    an ex used to refer to them as Come-Cakes.

    I guess I should have used the other spelling of come, but it makes me feel dirty to read that, let alone type it.
