Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon: Knucklehead

By Wyatt Earp | January 30, 2009


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?

    Avenge the sanctity of the Towel!

    If Whisenhunt gave one second’s thought to a man in a fuzzy cardinal outfit wiping his faux fur pits with that thing or Mayor Gordon spewing simulated snot into it, then that man deserves to see his team lose.

    And if the Steelers can only summon the will to win the game to defend the virtue a TOWEL, they should find new jobs working for Sheriff Joe making sure no one runs off with his sacred pink underwear.

    God, you’d think they were talking about a box of Thin Mints being throw in the trash or something…

    Oh, I would fight to the death for thin mints. A towel? I’d use it to clean up the mess in the kitchen.

    Is there some sort of game coming up or something?
    Quack Quack Quack
    (translation: DUCKS)

    Actually, my son and daughter in law fly in from Scorrsdale/Phoenix this afternoon to stay for a few days so I will get to find out all about it. Also, full game is being broadcast live on terrestrial TV. I’ll be there with my warm beer …

    I have to go to Pittsburgh today – to the North Shore…where the stadiums are. Anyway, while the big pep rally for the Steelers was yesterday, I’m betting we’ll see some hoopla today.

    And my coat is red. Bright, cardinal red. I’m a Steelers fan, but red is my favorite color. And my Tahoe is red…

    How much do you want to bet I get my a$$ kicked?

    I had to buy my daughters 2 new Steeler shirts because it’s “Black and Gold” day at school–the ones from ’05 dont fit anymore. Goovy, just put a Steeler flag on your antenna and you’ll survive.

    Like the man at Steelers Gab said, “There are only two things in this world you don’t stomp on – the American Flag and the Terrible Towel!”

    I’m getting the mayor and the Cardinals’ mascot didn’t get the memo not to give the Steelers a reason to be rile up? That being said, I don’t really think the Steel Curtains need any more motivation to defeat the Cardinals. It’s not losing to them that they’re trying to avoid.

    I let the kids slobber on our Terrible Towel. Out of love, I swear! They’re adding lucky drool.
