Do you realize how lucky you are?

Dear fellow Steelers fan, enlightenment comes in many guises. Today, a Bengals fan showed me how lucky I am...how lucky we all are to root for the Black & Gold...and how far I am from being enlightened.

While cruising You Tube, admiring Toney Clemons' acceleration, ball hawking skills, blocking skills, ect., (and generally salivating over our prospects for the coming season), I came across the following link. Sadly, despite feeling sympathy for the wretched slob, a small-minded part of me relished his misery. (See? My reaction to his pathos revealed my need for spiritual growth. I'm thinking of starting a new religion & naming it after a Tomlinism, i.e., "The New Life Church of the NFL IIWII Redeemer," or "It is what it is" for short.)

Remember. Regardless how bleak your horizons may seem, you can always cling to a certain joy: at least you weren't born in Ohio and reared a fan of the Bengals or Browns.
