HEY, PENNWOMAN

Martina,
Just wondered if you had caught this bit from SNL. Thought you'd enjoy it.

Sorry, I knew Martina -- a Steelers fan -- would "get" the joke without explanation.

James Harrison is a defensive linebacker for the Steelers -- so he is rarely a receiver of a pass. His job is usually to tackle whoever has the ball -- he doesn't usually have the ball himself.

But in this year's Super Bowl game, Harrison intercepted a pass meant for a member of the other team. He caught the ball on the goal line, and ran 100 yards to the opposite goal to score a touchtown for the Steelers. He is a big guy -- 6 feet tall, 242 lbs. He collapsed in the end zone and was on his back for a while catching his breath. There were pictures of him taking oxygen on the sidelines afterward. That's why he's so out of breath in the clip. It was, by the way, the longest play in Super Bowl history.

first of all, how thrilled was I to see a post saying hey pennwoman!
This was a HOOT, its been the talk of the town!
And to James Harrisons credit, he was named AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year, the first undrated player to do so!
The Steeler win has just been so much fun!
Go Steelers!
