Every once in a while, old people prove that when they aren’t sucking up social security and watching Matlock, they can be pretty damned entertaining.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are honoring their ’78 Super Bowl championship team tonight, which turned out to be a good move because the home team completely blew out the visiting Ravens. Monday Night Football sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya pulled aside hall of famer Mel Blount for a few seconds and asked him about the blowout game . Instead of giving the typical TV canned answer about them “going through struggles” or “having a bad night” Mel kept it real.
Well, I’ll tell you what, it’s kind of embarrassing that you’re in a professional league and you can’t perform any better than that. Granted, the Steelers are a tough defense but…. it’s pretty pathetic.
This doesn’t quite match up to Monday Night Football classic moments such as Joe Namath trying to kiss Suzy Kolber while drunk, or Jimmy Kimmel giving a shout out to the recently fired Joe Theismann, but it’s great to hear during a boring 38-7 blowout.
