I can’t believe I’m going to write this post.
In response to being named to the Steelers All-Time team, Hines said:
It’s one of the biggest honors that anyone can be a part of, next to the Super Bowl

It leaves you speechless. There’s not really a whole lot that I can say that would express how you feel to be honored that way.

It’s definitely an honor. I’ve had a lot of achievements and [accomplished] a lot of goals, but, beside winning the Super Bowl, being voted on that team I definitely would have to say, as far as playing football, that would be my second-highest goal ever.
My wife doesn’t even know about it. I don’t know what it has to do with anything, quite honestly. It really doesn’t have much to do with anything, but I don’t want to disrespect anyone because I know people do care about things like this.
Okay, Troysus, you know I love you so much that you’re practically my other religion, but this, “I am a child of God; I care not about this worldly world; my wife is a beautiful flower; peace be with you” stuff is great and all, but come on, would it kill you to at least TRY to care a little bit?!
What it has to do with anything, quite honestly, is that your fans have taken it upon themselves to vote you onto an All-Time team while you’re only in your twenties … letting you share legacy space with the Steel Curtain, Franco Harris, Mean Joe Greene. Are these names ringing a bell?
It means that you should cut the crap, say “thanks, it’s quite an honor,” and THEN go about your prayer time and wife-worshiping time.
There’s nothing in the Bible that says you can’t care about things on Earth and show a little gratitude to your fellow man every once in a great frickin’ while. I mean, FAKE IT, for crying out loud.
Okay, I’m done. I still love you.
