The Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger threw for 340 yards and six scores and set an NFL record for touchdown passes in consecutive games in an awesome victory over the Ravens this last Sunday.
Mean Joe Greene’s #75 was also retired this last weekend during halftime. This legend of Pittsburgh got a great showing at the game and everyone was abuzz about this event on Monday.

And now onto the Pens!
We will all remember where we were when we heard Dan Byslma was fired from the Penguins management team. I was in Lowe’s, shocked and appalled after hearing the news from my Pens alert. I yelped in shock and uttered a few obscene words, but all in all, I was mostly just disappointed. Bylsma came to Pittsburgh, and seemingly turned this team around. When asked about him, the team always had good things to say. He got us a Stanley Cup in 2009, and kept us in the Playoffs for the last 5 years. Personally, I liked the guy, but I don’t get a vote on the new management the Pens bring in. Other changes included promoting Jason Botterill to Associate General Manager and naming Bill Guerin and Tom Fitzgerald to Assistant General Managers, if you hadn’t heard the news yet.
To send Bylsma off, I’d like to share some awesome things he has done for the Pens (for the haters):
-He coached the team to win a franchise-record 252 games
