Pittsburgh Parlay...

All I can say about last night is WOW...Three big games for our local teams and three huge victories...Snack's penthouse loft was bumpin all night long, and the celebration will undoubtedly go on all weekend...

First off, the Steelers beat the Rams 41-24...It was nice to get a road win, and it definitely helps us as far as the playoffs go, but we lost Fast Willie for the season to a broken fibula...Dookie Davenport filled in admirable, and Carey Davis didn't play too bad, but they'll both have to step their game up another notch if we wanna make any kind of run...Kudos also go to Big Ben, who threw 3 TD's and had a perfect passer rating...Good job boys...

The Pens also beat the Bruins 5-4 in a shootout...Sid the Kid had his first "Gordie Howe hatrick", scoring a goal, assisting on two others, AND busting up Andrew Ferrence in a fight...Way to go Sid, I love that the first guy you maul in the NHL used to be a Penguin...very fitting...Am I crazy or did I see some blood coming from Ferrence's face?...Way to go Sid the Slasher, way to go...

And finally, in what was probably the biggest upset of the night, Pitt beat Duke in OT, 65-64...Levance Fields hit a 3 with 4 seconds left, and Dejuan Blair had 20 rebounds in this huge victory...this may even pop us into the top 5 in the polls, but we'll see...The bad news is that it appears Mike Cook is done forever, as he fell pretty damn hard and couldn't put any weight on his knee at all...Coach Dixon was almost in tears talking about him after the game, which is never a good sign...

Until lata...

Pitt's program got a big boost by whuppin the Dookies at MSG, no less. The wins were a nice Xmas gift - maybe the teams should press their luck & ask Santa for a couple of speedy, soft-handed wings for Sid the Kid, a couple of O-linemen that can actually get in someone's way for Big Ben, and someone to step off the bench and play big time hoops for Jamie.
