When Will They Learn?

January 27, 2009

Super Bowl week just wouldn’t be right without a good controversy to grumble about, and there’s a hot one developing for Pittsburgh fans…

 

Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon is disrespecting the Terrible Towel!

 

(Apparently, he didn’t read the open letter to Keith Bulluck. Scroll down a couple of posts to check that out.)

 

A new video on the Internet shows Gordon handing a yellow towel to the Cardinals’ mascot, a big red bird named Big Red. (So creative.)

The big fella wipes his armpit with the cloth and throws it to the ground and stomps on it — just like Bulluck and LenDale White did in the final moments of the Tennessee Titans’ blowout win over the Steelers last month.

 

And Gordon takes the towel and sneezes into it, like Jevon Kearse did in that same Titans-Steelers game.

 

The footage was shot Monday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, during a rally to send the Arizona Cardinals off to Super Bowl XLIII against the Steelers.

 

(You can watch the video here.)

 

So… we were going to be nice to the Cards because they have all those local ties to Pittsburgh on their roster. But they can forget about that now.

 

Remember: You don’t mess with Myron Cope. It’s a painful lesson, Mayor Gordon, but you’ll learn. Just ask the Titans. (Or Bill Hillgrove.)
