Farrior flips bird to Dawg Pound

Sorry for the delay in posts, but we sure hope you all enjoyed the Steelers win over the Browns Sunday night. We unfortunately lost power during the game for a while with all the wind that was blowing from the remnants of hurricane Ike. Somehow, our street seems to be the one that loses power, while others still have it. Although Sunday night we weren't the only ones, we appeared to be the only ones in the general area. Go figure. 

Moving on, James Farrior was one of several players being taunted by Cleveland's "Dawg Pound" before and during the game. When Ryan Clark appeared injured late in the third quarter, some fans decided to cheer, which made Farrior mad and resulted in some exchanging of the middle finger. He'll likely be fined pretty good for that gesture, and we doubt Mike Tomlin will be too happy. To read about that and the other exchanges, click here.

Brett Keisel is going to be out for up to two months with a calf injury. There are no specifics on exactly what it is, but Dan Kreider had a similar injury in 2001 that kept him from playing for more than two months. He was wearing a protective boot from his foot up to his knee yesterday. He will have more tests on it this week.

Ben Roethlisberger does indeed have a low-grade separation in his shoulder and it should be sore for several weeks. Let's hope he's fine and continues to play well even with the sore shoulder.

Ed Bouchette writes on the Steelers' late-game offense with Willie Parker. And also on why the Steelers didn't attempt a field goal late in the game.

If you 'd like a good laugh over a Browns-Steelers' game bet, the head on over to Blog 'n' Gold over at the PG.

In Penguins news, the first on ice practice will be tomorrow at 9 a.m. and is open to the public. It will be a very short training camp because of their trip to Sweden. More Pens news here.
