Bengals v. Steelers v. Colts

Mike Kremzar, whomever he may be, appears to be so bitter over the Steelers 31-17 wild-card playoff win Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals that he is complaining to me.

While I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and of course support the Steelers as does any other red-blooded American, I have not commented in this blog or anywhere else about Sunday’s game up to this moment. (I wonder if Mr. Kremzar is tracking down all the Pittsburgh-bred bloggers…?)

Still, perhaps Mr. Kremzar will feel a little better if his comments are published:

Your defense of the Cheap Shot Steelers is very strange. Led by Dirty Bill Coward, Kimo VonScumBag intentionally went for Palmer’s knee. Pictures clearly show him holding Palmer’s foot down while he drove into the knee – as coached by Dirty Bill. Kimo VonDarthVader will end his career not known as an average player but as the Cheap shot artist who may have ended a promising career. Of course, the Steeler fans exult in plays like this and continue to celebrate their team’s dirty play. Unlike crybaby Ben Ratslinger who whines whenever he is touched, Palmer chooses to never look back and always puts a positive spin on things. I do recommend that Big Ben Ratslinger and Kimo VonScumBag not ride their motorcycles in Ohio – those machines can be dangerous.

What comes around goes around. The Cheap Shot Steelers and Dirty Bill Coward are incapable of winning – particularly in Indianapolis – without late hits, taunting, gouging, and injuring opposing players. Go Colts.Mike Kremzar

I do think it is a shame that Bengals Quarterback Carson Palmer’s knee was injured, and I respect Palmer’s classy comments about it, but when it comes to the question of the game’s outcome, Mr. Kremzar, it is not irrelevant that the Bengals defense allowed the Steelers to score 31 points. Younze guys might want to work on that.Addendum, 1/15/06: Pittsburgh 21, Indianapolis 18
