We Now Return to Our Regularly Scheduled Steeler-Hatin'

Looks like Ben Roethlisberger is not only okay, but already talking about looking forward to training camp. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh media has seen fit to question the mental health of those people who, in lieu of fasting and rending their garments, have reacted to his injury by coming up with gems like "Ben Toothlessberger."

Sure, some of this stuff is over the top, but the sanctimonious prattle from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette rings a little hollow when you remember how Pittsburgh fans turned on Tommy Maddox last season.

Anyway, all this leads me to declare that our moratorium on Steeler-hatin' is more over than Brad and Jen. To celebrate its end, I'll let a very distinguished friend of the blog throw out the first pitch. So, here's a little jab from CWRU Law School's Peter Friedman. Nice job, Peter-- that one will leave a mark.

P.S. By the way, if you aren't a regular reader of Peter Friedman's RAWBLOG, do yourself a favor and wander around the site while you're visiting. Peter has thoughtful comments on everything from law to culture to politics to the war to Argentine soccer (Argentine soccer?). Check it out.
