LenDale White and Keith Bulluck, the Tenessee Titans who stupidly stomped on the Terrible Towel in 2008, thus angering the ghost of Myron Cope so much that they lost their next eight games, finally won a game this past weekend. Do you know why?
The win raises the Titans’ season record to 1-6, and it came just two days after Allegheny Valley School received one of Myron Cope’s signature yellow towels in the mail, signed by Bulluck and White.
Ah. So they appeased the angry ghost of Myron Cope.
Along with the towel, Abraham sent the school a handwritten note that said, “LenDale and Keith wish you all the best” and “P.S. Please release the curse!!”
Keeping in mind that the Lions have not won a game since their mascot Roary ate a Terrible Towel in their loss to the Steelers three weeks ago, check this vote out:
That’s right. We’re not a superstitious people, but we believe in the Ghost of Myron Cope.
You don’t suppose one of the Buccos of Suckitude or the Pirate Parrot or Kevin McClatchy ever stomped on or otherwise desecrated a Terrible Towel, say, oh, 17 years ago, do you?
Just to be safe, I think we need to offer up a burnt sacrifice to the Ghost of Myron Cope at the gate to PNC Park this weekend.
I’ll bring the pigeons; one of you bring Steely McBeam.
