    Disappointment in store for steelers. Packers are the team of destiny. Resistance is futile. Only one NFL qaurterback has ever driven a dog sled in Alaska.

      I like this Bashar Al-Assad,Cesar. He's one of the very few decent rulrers in the Middle East. At least he's nobody's puppet which is more than can be said for others.
