Steelers win in super finish

“Great players step up in big-time games to make plays,” said Holmes, the game’s MVP. He said he told Roethlisberger that he “wanted to be the guy to make the plays for this team.”
And he was.
Holmes grabbed the ball with both arms stretched fully above his head in the back right corner of the end zone, his toes barely dragging inbounds. He fell, sat up and cradled the ball like the prize it was.

How does a dog even eat a nail?

After all, no matter how much we love our four-legged friends, their cold noses and wagging tails can never take the place of a baby’s smile or that tiny hand curled around your finger.
There are times, though, when we have to do things for our pets that go beyond the standard low-maintenance treatment of a dog or a cat.
I experienced this firsthand not too long ago.
Leave it to Casey the dog to cause much worry and accrue a big fat vet bill thanks to her doggie dumbness. For the record, in the six years that I’ve had Caddy the cat, she’s never done this to me.

Tigers celebrate title

“I told you when I came here we thought we’d win a national championship, but we didn’t think it would take this long,” the second-year coach quipped.
After a brief moment of silence, the crowd caught on and started chuckling.
“Ha, ha, ha … now you get it,” Broadway said with a huge grin. “G-S, G-S, G-S-U … I thought you knew.”
The playfulness from the usually reserved coach was a pleasant surprise for many in the crowd.
