Steelers leave Cincinnati bruised, battered — and alive in AFC playoffs

# – # – # – # – # 

Did the “gods of football” deliver Karmic justice to the Cincinnati fans for booing and throwing garbage on Pittsburgh Steeler QB Big Ben when he was taken off injured?

And, to reinforce the lesson, those same “gods of football” did it by befogging the brains of the Cincinnati defense. 

How does that line go?

“Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.” — Euripides

I always thought it meant “crazy”, but last night I got the true meaning.

A true champion respects his opponent; because in the end, our true opponent is ourselves.

Last night demonstrated that to any who watched.

Well done, “gods of football” for demonstrating STARKLY the Law of Karma — what goes around, comes around.

Usually, exponentially worse.

So, be careful what you wish for others, you might get it back — bigger and harder.

Wow!

And remember the old Cincinnati coach’s quote that was on the locker room scroll: “The key to winning is poise under stress.”

Guess no one read that one!
