Coach Bill Cowher actually said Ben Roethlisberger plays well when he's sick (he registered a temp of 104 yesterday before the game). After last night's stellar performance, I say, schedule surgery on Ben's pancreas right before the Bengals game so he'll be in top form!
And I must sing a dirge to Notre Dame. I grew up the daughter of a Notre Dame fanatic and alum. (Said father is understandably in hiding this week. I will send chocolates.)
Tear, tear for old Notre Dame
Put to bed the ashes whispering her name...
College football had it all: scandal, upsets and the University of Cincinnati on national TV!
Edited to add: Bengal linebacker David Pollack is out for the season with a broken neck. What a dangerous game! What mother in her right mind lets her sons play football?
More theology later. :)
