The donation will also cover a ballistic vest for the canine.
Roethlisberger, who is a dog lover, wants to help aquire police dogs, which often must be purchased through donations because of budget constraints.

This one wasn’t our Steelers though. It was our NHL team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, beating the L.A. Kings out in
It’s not like no one has ever done that before. It’s just that the last time someone did was 89 years ago. I want Penguins tickets to see this guy Malkin in person!

Got to give some credit to Charlie Batch for stepping in and passing for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns. But we made a number of screwups and Atlanta took advantage of all of them. We did a lot of good stuff, but they did more.

It’s good to be back at my keyboard after this summer’s various detours, some of which made me a little more empathetic with the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger. Hospitals are just no fun! Hope you’ve and the team have gotten some rest during the bye week, Ben – along with some running practice Bill Cowher is prescribing!
I understand the coach would like Ben to pack a few pounds back on, too! How do I get my doctor to order me to snack at night?

For me personally, just the thought of losing a couple of teeth is enough to make me wear a helmet. Nevermind broken jaws and brain injuries. But then, I don't have the kind of job where I have to perform superbly under pressure in front of thousands of ticket buyers and millions of viewers--and with the chance I could get smooshed by some 300-pound guy while I'm doing it. I guess only a natural-born risktaker could do that.

Well it is Mother’s Day and I have already visited mom with some flowers and candy. She was thrilled to see me and as usual had a lot to say about the Pittsburgh Steelers. I love my mom but sometimes she can be so negative. I think we have a good chance to repeat even if my mom thinks Roethlisberger is getting soft in the off-season because she’s heard stories that he’s been traveling the world with his wife and getting in touch with his roots.

I am so confused about the Duke Lacrosse players’ scandal and recent news that no DNA evidence was found to link the boys to the rape. Today I read that the Grand Jury adjourned without handing down any charges concerning the case. I really despise hearing about athletes who get involved in antics such as wild parties with call girls and such debauchery. Whether they are on the professional level or not, there are some things athletes should not do because they are morally wrong and represent a careless lifestyle and disdain for the rules of society. It is a shame when they choose to act like celebrities instead of athletes.

The Pittsburgh Steelers inked deals with wide receiver Quincy Morgan and defensive end Shaun Nua today. Both are re-signings and I am not one to argue with the numbers. We went all the way with the team we’ve got so I don’t see any point in making any changes. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see fewer than usual this time around.

I’m glad there’s baseball and basketball to keep me entertained in the NFL off-season. I am still reeling from the Pittsburgh Steelers winning the Super Bowl but now there’s no more football. So I have been rooting for the Dallas Mavericks who are looking like they might surpass the Detroit Pistons for best team in the league soon. Dirk Nowitzki is a shoo-in for MVP of the league this year for sure.
