Rod Serling on the Steelers Week 1

- You unlock this new (YouTube) door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… NFL WEEK ONE!

Sunday Night football on Thursday and Barry Sanders back in Detroit should have been a clue. Chiefs in new rings get mauled by Lions.

- It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears. Your team (Steelers) lost but remains alive while others won and died. A-chilles was a four—time MVP hero and (one of the) greatest of all the warriors but wearing #8 proved to be his demise. The end of a career carted away just after 3 plays. Not even Jake from State Farm nor a walk-off punt return can save the Jets from being the Jets.

- On this planet or wherever there is human life – perhaps out amongst the stars – beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Ugly was named Allen and Tannehill and Borrow and Jones and Pickett. If Bad Company was a good band but corrupts good character, what is good company?

- No moral, no message, no prophetic tract, just a simple statement of fact: for civilization to survive, the human race has to remain civilized. $55 Million Dollars is uncivilized and the Bengals paid - twice. Russ doesn’t cook enough, Ravens lose Dobbins, OTs down, WRs dinged, DTs out, and now 43yo Jason Peters is back.

- Nothing's impossible. Some things are less likely than others, that's all. 49ers over Steelers almost felt right by comparison.
