Buy Some Super Bowl Tickets for Me Too!

Buy your Super Bowl tickets folks. The Pittsburgh Steelers have done that which no one thought possible. We beat the Indianapolis Colts knocking them out of the playoffs and hurling ourselves into the AFC Championship game against the Denver Broncos. It is going to be a tense game for Ben Roethlisberger because the Denver defense is very aggressive.

Steelers Need to prepare for Colts on Sunday

We are facing the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in the AFC Division Playoff game. In the regular season the Colts beat us by limiting us to 86 rushing yards. In our past five games we have averaged over 175 rushing yards but the Colts could be the only team capable of stopping our rushing game. There are a lot of things we are going to have to focus on to beat the Colts. This fan hopes that the Steelers are taking this one seriously because it would be nice to see my team go to the Super Bowl. I fear, however, that our defensive squads are equally matched and we could see low scoring game or even overtime against the Colts.

Oliver Perez Under the Microscope

The Pirates are looking hard at Oliver Perez. Like many players he is playing winter ball. Some think that he didn’t do well in the 2005 season because he did not participate in any conditioning or winter ball during the off-season. He is playing for the Mexican team from Culiacan, his home town, at the suggestion of team management. Littlefield has made a trip to check up on his progress and the outlook is good for him to have a strong 2006 season and take on more of a leadership role. He has not made any impressive improvements on the mound but has made some general steps in the right direction.
