Right now, they're calling for rain and perhaps some sleet.

Oh, and they're rolling out new turf today.

I think i've seen this play before.

Wait, Weather Report?  I know Finny digs the quiet-storm, easy listening stuff, but couldn't they have got a band like Boston?

If they put down new turf, it should be watered immediately.  That's Agronomy 101.

Come on, Birdland is a great song...And I think the lead singer of Boston committed suicide earlier this year so no luck with that...

I'm sure the field will be just OK. Not great, but not the slopfest from the other night. Also, whats the deal with the seams in the tarp? It looked like they sent 5 guys to Walmart to get a bunch of the biggest tarps they had. Why don't they have a custom one that rolls out in one piece? If AZ can have a system that moves the entire field outside to inside and back again, surely the Steelers could have a much better field covering system.

It is the same borderline used from a swap meet shit we tried to play on last Mondee night. They just "aerated" it. Whatever that means.

Just like 3RS was. Even after that there implosion.

Myth. The new field got it's ass kicked. Everyone knew it would if it kept raining like that. The seams in the tarp idea was construed after the tarpulians were gone the "scars" were seen.

That's a big ass tarp, yo. There's no way that dream tarp couldve taken the type of all day rain abuse and been moved. Let alone moved keeping all rain off of the field. It'd take them an hour.

Delp is rolling over in his grave. Trying to get the Boston tunes out of his dead cold head. Or someone like that I mean.

I was wondering when the complaints about the turf would start during the week we play the Bengals instead of the Dolphins.

Not to call you out, AJ, but a football team should not be assembled around "speed" or any other specific; a football team should be picked on one critierion only: Can the dude play ball?  That's why we drafted Greene and that's why we drafted Hines m'f'in Ward, and that's why we win in the sun and in the rain.

If they're fast, and they can play football, so much the better.  But I sure as hell hope Tomlin never goes into a draft with the specific goal of getting "faster" (or "bigger" or whatever), and I doubt he has or will.  Like the man says, "It's all there on the tape."

You mean like Foreigner or REO Speedwagon? Juke Box Hero or Urgent always gets the crowd pumped.....I think the Scorpions "Rock You Like a Hurricane" would have been very appropriate last week.

A band like Foriegner would be permissable, but not a band like REO Speedwagon.  

They'd have to play songs like "Cold as Ice", however, not songs like "Juke Box Hero".

I'm a bit pissed off the Gunners laid down for Seville-- after all, there's seeding on the line-- but I guess in the Champions League you know you have to make visits to Milan and Barcelona anyway, so might as well do it sooner rather than later.

I'm listening to Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak this A.M..  Great effing album.

I'm just glad Chelsea is through, and hopefully they can weather the loss of Drogba for the Africans Cup.
I think it was minor miracle Chelsea got through; it had all the early makings of a "lost season".

I'm torn between wanting and not wanting Mourinho to get the England job.  On the one hand, he'd make them better, and I hate it when England does well, but on the other, the tabloids would have a field day.  Mourinho makes Sven-Goran look like Queen Victoria.

My thoughts on the turf (although I'm sure it's been mentioned and no one cares, but fuck it):

They're professionals and they should be able to play in all conditions.  It gives the Steelers even more of a home field advantage, so that's a big plus.  I just find it hard to believe that the NFL won't make them do something about it.  They couldn't have been happy with the game on Monday.  A game in the slop like that is a nice novelty for casual fans, but could get old.

I think that (getting guys that can ball) goes without saying, but at the same time, I don't think you can deny that teams carry an identity, for the most part.

And, offensively speaking, this team is not a smashmouth team anymore.  They don't have a front five that can just line up on anybody and blow them off the ball.  They don't have a back that, when all else fails, can move the pile 3 or 4 yards when there's nothing there.

Despite what people want to believe, this group is built around speed, deception and Ben's arm.  When you think about their two biggest assets on offense, what term comes to mind?  Speed.  Maybe it wasn't their intent to have that sort of squad, but that's how they've evolved because of who they've taken.  And, as a result, I think they need to do whatever it takes to maximize those strengths now.  IMO, having them play a game or two or four in slop doesn't do that.  In fact, I'd say it does more to hinder their growth and effectiveness than anything else.

also, thanks in part to the weather, there looks to be plenty of seats available again tonight. we had three come free in our group which I just got takers for. so once again, if you always say you can't get to a Steelers game, go tonight. scalpers should have plenty of seats.
