I thought about posting this earlier in the week, but truth be told I’m a Packer fan and not a journalist.
On Tuesday of last week, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was hung out to dry for going out drinking at a piano bar with his offensive lineman. I heard many people go as far as saying it contributed to his sub-par performance on the field.
Enter Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang.
On Wednesday night in Dallas, I was about to wrap up a rather long evening downtown at The House of Blues. The main bar area was nearly empty, and as I packed up my gear I happened to glance across the bar and to my surprise there stood Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang along with an entourage of about four other gentleman.
Every member of the group did indeed have beer in hand.
Jayme quickly ran over to the end of the bar to introduce herself, and I must say, the group was definitely NOT happy to see they had been spotted. Not more than five minutes later, they had all but disappeared.
Now I can’t attest to the level of drunkenness, or what happened before or after, but in retrospect it appears that a night of drinking during Superbowl weekend doesn’t automatically translate into a loss.
I didn’t want to mention it at the time. It’s about winning, not about traffic.
So Josh, the next time I see you in a bar during Superbowl weekend offer to buy me one this time.
The TMZ opportunity was right there for me buddy, I even had a HD cam locked on ya.
But, as always, I’m 100 percent Packer fan.
And we’re Superbowl Champions now.
