Showdown


Tomorrow at 4:30 p.m., the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets will square off at Heinz Field in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game. This guestblogger hails from the Iron City; our host Cap'n Pete fashions himself a Jets fan, for whatever reason.

Look for a battle much like the debates that occur on the pages of Coney Island: tenacious, hard-hitting, and mostly one-sided. The Jets don't even stand a chance.

The Steelers are coming off a 14-game winning streak, led by rookie phenom Ben Roethlisberger. Here is a team that mixes true talent with true grit, representing a town of hard-working, no-nonsense, gold-hearted folks. The Jets aren't even from New York--they play their "home" games in New Jersey.

Cap'n Pete has conveniently skipped town for the game, presumably to avoid witnessing the carnage in my presence. May the best team (read: Steelers) win.
