:10 Just so you know, I am at my spot at the stadium. Don’t try to find me, you’ll miss the game trying, and if you did find me, I’d have to kill you. But trust me when I tell ya “my spot” is Super Bowl tight and the best seat in the house. And yes, the food is free… see ya!!!

:09 A little flashback moment for ya if you don’t mind. (Well, I am flashing back whether you mind or not.) Black men catch a lot of heat from a lot of directions a lot of the time and none more often than Brothers crossing over, but Halle Berry marries over the boarder and nothin’ said. Why? Because he’s French? I am sick of it. Halle, you’re off the top 10 list for good. (Maybe!)

:08 I suspect that Serena will win the U.S. Open today and in so doing continue her move to become the greatest female player of all time. She is playing better than ever! This just in…she won. 17 titles and counting.

:07 Update from my spot: Maurkice Pouncey on his way to the hospital to get an MRI on the friendly fire knee injury he suffered on a routine running play… here we go again—untimely penalties once again changing the course of the Steelers game plan and two fumbles from Redman tells ya right now he’ll soon be a back-up again! And Jarvis Jones is for real.

:06 The Pirates are in the playoffs no question about that, but you can start being a little concerned about where and how they finish. I am not feeling the same mojo from these guys and if the Pirates and St. Louis aren’t careful, the Reds are going to steal the whole show.

:05 High School Football is in full effect. Please go out and support the student athletes…parents, please make sure the student precedes the athlete… and for God’s sake, will all you guys that never played anything but checkers, please stop trying to be a star through your kids. Just stop it…you look stupid!

:04 Hey, can somebody do me a favor? Get the guy on the phone that booked Pitt to play Florida State in the opening game. Look, give me “Cup Cake University” for my home opener. I am just saying.

:03 Ben, just throw the damn ball!

:02 Question: Who wrote the Steelers play book and are they still in high school? It’s that weak!
