Harrison is mad and so is the NFL

So yesterday we covered the comments that James Harrison had on the officiating of the Jacksonville game, particularly the roughing the passer call on him in the fourth quarter. Well, we all knew it was coming, right? The NFL has reportedly fined him $20,000 for his comments. No word yet on whether he felt it was worth it. When asked about it, Tomlin said he had nothing to say, not surprisingly. We can see why the NFL doesn't want these guys opening their mouths and saying whatever they want, because let's face it, there are plenty of players who can't control themselves and always have one thing on their minds...themselves. But if they can't say it, who will? The NFL most likely won't. And in this case, James Harrison was right, that was just a crappy call. Period.

On the injury front, there appears to be some good news. Jeff Reed should be ready to play Cincy after the bye week, although Mitch Berger may kickoff if necessary. Brett Keisel returned to practice yesterday so he should be ready to go as well. You can read the others here. And a little more on the injury issues here.

On the Pens front, the PG has an article today on the power play. The Pens will return to practice today.

We finally sat down and caught Sidney Crosby In My Own Words Season III and it's worth a watch. Good show with good questions. It looks like the "mini-mullet" as some like to call it is already starting. We really like the short hair, it looks good. And we know we tend to have a fetish with accents and freakishly large body parts, and Sidney Crosby is no exception. Be sure to check out the little bit of thigh you can see during IMOW. Those look like some very large thighs. It's still yet to be seen who wins the largest thigh title between Sid, Jeff Reed, and James Harrison.

Lastly, we saw this over at The Sidney Crosby Show and basically had to put it here too because it's insane. Check out the stick (sick) save by Carey Price in a preseason game between the Canadiens and the Red Wings. That's basically unbelievable. Insane. Enjoy!
