BTSC Steelers Daily Six Pack- Robert Kraft Loves Russians Edition

IX- Ron Cook wrote an article in the Post Gazette yesterday about how lucky we are to be Pittsburgh fans right now.  The article had a tone that might be considered a little snarky when it called out Cleveland for winning one title in the same period where Pittsburgh has one eleven.  Mike Peticca of the Cleveland Plain Dealer didn't appreciate Cook's piece and decided to write a whiny irrelevant loser's manifesto rebuttal to Cook.  You will have to read the article for yourself but even Cleveland fans in the comments section are calling out Peticca for his illogical arguments.

X-Blitzburgh Blog has an interesting concept that I'll be sure to keep stopping back to check out.  The concept is to comment on the rules that Steeler Nation abides by, even some of the bad ones.  The first topic is "the backup quarterback is always greater than the starting quarterback."  In their piece they are arguing that it's nonsense that Steeler Nation feels the need to consistently call for a back-up quarterback to replace the starting quarterback.  It's not that common right now since we have a two time Super Bowl winnner leading our squad, but I'm sure Beerman will resurface to fire off nonsense after Ben's first bad game of the season.

XIII- An article in the Silver City Sun-News has a few interesting anecdotes about Super Bowl rings.  The most interesting of which involves Patriots' owner Robert Kraft who accidentally ended up giving his Super Bowl ring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Rather than cause a global gaffe Kraft allowed Putin to keep the ring and it's still housed to this day in the Kremlin Library.  So not only are the New England Patriots cheaters they are also communists to boot. [It's a joke]

XIV- Two interesting non football articles.  Tiger Woods actually shows he's human, and Wimbeldon is in the process of making rules to stop woman's tennis players from making those loud grunts when they hit the ball.

XL- More positive news about Willie Parker's off-season training.  All reports so far have been that Parker is looking more and more like the running back from a few years ago and he is pushing himself to prove that he's not done in steel town.  [ Countdown is officially on until the comments section is full of written venom about Willie Parker being washed up and finished in Pittsburgh]

XLIII-The tire marks all over Dan Rooney are because Bud Selig decided to throw him and the entire 1970 Steel Curtain Dynasty under the bus in an interview with Dan Patrick yesterday.  Selig mentioned the rumors regarding the alleged and admitted steroid use of the 1970's Steelers to draw parallels to the current issues that Major League Baseball is having.
