Thought this week went by slowly? Next will surely be trying. A couple links and thoughts on a Friday afternoon.
* I bet you didn't know that the Steelers and the Cardinals were once one and the same. A fine story over at Revenge of the Birds will fill you in.
* Just had this passed a long to me (thanks Kathy!) Random, but pretty cool. I'm sure some of you have seen it, but we were guessing how much of this is good editing. Probably a lot, no?:
* Here's a chart breaking down the 'toughest' schedules in football this year. (hat tip: deuce blue).
* No link but if you're in Pittsburgh, Nate Washington and other Steelers players will supposedly (I haven't had that confirmed) be behind the bar at Southside 86, Hines Ward's joint.
* Parade.com has compiled a list of former All-Americans playing in the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh has five such players. You can check out their lists here.
* More from me in a bit. Happy Friday y'all.
