Silver Lining- Steelers to lose Super Bowl Trophies

It's been a busy week-end.

I took some boy scouts to the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. It's a cool place to visit and humbling but its not too good for sleeping, especially with 400 hundred other people on board. Let's also not forget that funky smell the Lady Lex leaves with you to take home....

Before we did that we visited the State Aquarium next door. A good time even though "Maverick" the hawk decided to boycott his part and thus shorten the show. In fact he boycotted the stage entirely settling first in a nearby palm tree and then on the roof of the aquarium building. Last I saw two handlers were having no luck getting Maverick back on their arm.

I traveled back to Austin and then took my cub scout to a "Space Derby". Kind of like a Pinewood Derby with the rubber band powered propeller driven craft "flying" on fishing wire. This was our Packs first time to try such an event.

So I am tired. Sunburned from saving seats to the dolphin show and my eyes hurt. But before I hit the sack I wanted to leave you with this from Right Voices. Now, I 'm a Dallas Cowboys fan so this was enough to get my attention:

Pittsburgh, PA. The Super Bowl XLIII Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, the only team to win six titles, will soon be losing half of those trophies. After a meeting between NFL Commissioner Rodger Gadel and President BarackHussain Obama, Obama decided to redistribute half of their Steeler Super Bowl victories and trophies to less fortunate teams in the league.

“We live everyday in the country that invented the Super Bowl.” said Obama “We are not about to lose this Great American tradition in the wake of these difficult times.” Obama’s plan calls for the Steelers, who are a successful NFL team, to give half of their Super Bowl trophies to teams that are not successful or have not been as successful as the Steelers.“The Detroit Loins are just as much a part of the same fiber of the NFL as the Steelers and they should, no rather will, be entitled to a Super Bowl Trophy as well.” Obama explains in his plan that he has imposed on Godel and the NFL.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who by virtue of hard work, excellent team play, stellar draft choices, responsible investingof free agents, careful hiring of coaches and excellent community service and commitment to their fans, has prospered greatly during the past 30 years and have won six Super Bowl Trophies. But President Barack Hussain Obama’s plan calls for the Pittsburgh Steelers to carry the larger burden of the NFL’s less successful teams. Obama went on to further proclaim, “In these difficult times we are all in this to work together. We must reclaim the NFL Championship Dream for every team, for every city and for every fan.”

“My plan will not affect 31 of the 32 teams in the league.” Obama assures. That’s over 95 percent of the teams in the NFL will not have to worry about loosing any Super Bowl Trophies. “The worst teams in the NFL and the teams that can’t seem to get a break and win a championship will no longer have to worry about going without a title.” Obama promises. “We are a country and league of hope. We all need to make a change. It does not matter the color of the teams uniforms, the personal decisions that the teams make or their performance but rather if they are a member of this great American league.” The Super Bowl XLIII trophy will be redistributed to the 0-16 Detroit Lions.

Oh good! Maybe the Arizona Cardinals will finally get their Superbowl rings! Obama's redistribution may be the only way they can. And just too bad for the Steelers. They're just a bunch of greedy elites who are monopolizing all the Superbowl wealth. How unfair is that? Obama should just force their owner to resign and then have Bernanke shuffle some money around to federalize the team.

Why, that makes perfect sense, Eurip! I'm beginning to catch on, now and can appreciate this new idea! Anything to beat up on a Steeler, after all, I'm not a Steeler fan. I mean they'd never do that to MY team, right?
