Up Close at Steelers Training Camp

Had never been to glorious Latrobe before to see the Beloved at training camp. Pays to know people, or at least Tirpak :) An incredibly beautiful day at St. Vincent, even if I almost got steamrolled by a blocking sled...

Nothing to do with camp, but heard a funny quote from Ike Taylor the other day, commenting on the intense Madden competition that goes on in the dorms after the day's practices are over. I guess in Madden '07 (I may be wrong on the year, sorry), OT Willie Colon is portrayed as a white guy in the game (Mr. Colon is indeed a black man, for those not following along at home). Shoeless Ike was asked about this, and commented: "Ah, man...they messed up his paint job." Frickin Hilarious.

2:00 drill, #1 O vs. #1 D. Tomlin ruled this an incompletion, I think.

Soundbyte of the day: from FS Ryan Clark, during a 2:00 drill in which the offense stalled on 3rd down inside the 5 yard line:
"I've got a cousin. His name is NOTHING!"
Special thanks again to Tirpak for an incredible experience.
