Apparently, the mayor decided to keep tap dancing on the landmine.
Everyone in the Cardinals organization, from the head coach down to the practice squad players, has been very careful not to give the Steelers any bulletin-board material this week. If they’ve mentioned the Steelers at all, it’s been only to talk about their great respect for them.
That’s not by accident, either. They’re being deliberately careful not to provoke the Steelers, and so far, they haven’t. And that’s why I’m guessing that Ken Whisenhunt would like to strangle Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon today.
Mayor Gordon and Big Red, the Cardinals mascot, held up a Terrible Towel at a rally yesterday, and Big Red used it to wipe his armpits. He then gave the towel to the mayor, who pretended to blow his nose on it, and then threw it on the ground. (H/T – )
Dumbass. Now the Steelers are going to hear about this – they probably already have – and if you don’t think they’re pissed, you don’t know the Steelers.
Will everyone who would like to kick Mayor Gordon in the groin please line up?
