The opening paragraph from his articleMidway through the third quarter of Super Bowl XLIII, I was congratulating myself for attending a party instead of writing about the game. Pittsburgh was driving with a 10-point lead. The Cardinals had a salad fork sticking out of them ever since the 14-point swing at the end of the first half, when James Harrison unleashed his amazing 100-yard TAINT with help from the officials (who ignored LaMarr Woodley's blatant clipping and Harrison's getting tackled just short of the goal line). Other than that one play, this was a snoozefest. We weren't even getting enough Cuba Gooding Jr. shots.
Here it is:
I guess Simmons doesn't know a clip has to come below the waist. As for the tackle, well, I'll just leave that to everyone who actually, you know, watched the game, as Simmons early and often admits he did not. In any case, writers ought to know the meaning of the words they use. Not to mention, watch the games they are paid to cover.
Simmons would never have gotten higher than a D in my class.
