So Mike Tomlin is now 2-for-4 in reaching the AFC Championship game during his tenure with the Steelers. His 50% average bests even Bill Cowher’s 40% average, which I lauded in this post from 2007.
It never fails to astound me how consistently good the Steelers have been for the past four decades (15 Championship Game appearances — the most of any team in either conference) and the Pirates can’t even luck into a winning season.
PS. Come see me this Friday at Mike Wysocki’s comedy showcase at the Corner Cafe. 18th Street South Side. 9pm. $5. NEW TAILGATING JOKES!
Pittsburgh is having its first ever comedy festival. And the whole city is invited. Seven nights, seven diffrent venues, and seven completely different shows.
DON’T MISS THIS GREAT EVENT. This will be just like Woodstock. Except without music and with working bathrooms. And there won’t be a million people there. And it’s inside. And it’s in Pittsburgh. And it’s a week long instead of 3 days. The point is that people will be talking about this event for decades to come.
All ticket sales will go to Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh. So come have some laughs and support a good cause.
