Steelers’ Holmes Keeps Feet on the Ground

Many Steelers fans were stricken with panic when the Cardinals rebounded in the last quarter of Super Bowl XLIII, but not Santonio Holmes–he kept his feet on the ground. Literally.

In what had to have been the most well caught pass of the game (if not the season), Holmes planted his tip-toes on the very lip of the boundary line, allowing the Steelers to pull ahead enough in the last minute of the game to win.

He was cornered. He caught a pass from [Steelers quarterback] Ben Roethlisberger on the back side of the end zone, with three Arizona Cardinals bearing down on him while he balanced on the tips of his toes. (New York Times)

For a moment, Holmes sat crouching over, clutching the ball to his chest. As thousands of Steelers fans jumped to their feet and cheered, Holmes seemed to need just a quiet second or two to soak in what had just happened. His teammates ran and fell on top of him, patting his helmet and shoulders with great gaiety and pride.

Holmes was voted the game’s most valuable player. He caught nine passes for 131 yards. (New York Times)

Life and Blogging

My life has been getting in the way of blogging lately; for that, I apologize. Perhaps I’ll blog about it when I feel these turn of events are funny, as opposed to how lame and stressful these matters are currently.

I’ve decided to blog on weekdays only, leaving the weekend for me to go out and experience things, then come back and report back to you. On Fridays, I’ll be detailing my social schedule which will be the basis of my blog topics.

Posts to Come:

  • Losing my Alamo Drafthouse virginity
  • Spirits at the Flying Saucer
  • Commerical Party (aka: viewing of the Super Bowl and the celebrated ads that come along with it)
  • The inspirational visit from Texas Monthly writer, John Spong
  • Books and tea at the Green Muse
