Monday Night Football: Houston, We Have a Problem

Last night’s American Football match between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Houston Texans will be added to the list of military disasters, Wikipedia editors said this morning.

The talk of Wall Street jocks today will be Houston’s amazing collapse late in the second quarter when the Steelers, down 13-0, scored 24 unanswered points in less than 3 minutes to end the first half up 24-13.  In those 3 minutes, the Texans looked like the victims of an orphanage fire.  Confused and disoriented, Houston players on the field were heard crying “mama, help!”.  The Steelers looked like the Harlem Globetrotters, scoring at will on what looked like a little-league team who was fumbling and throwing interceptions right and left.

Highlights included Antonio Browns left-handed touchdown pass on a reverse play and an amazing deflected-helmet-bounced interception by defensive lineman Brett Keisel, a 6 foot 5 inch, 285 pound man who looks like a Wookie.  After the game, Keisel mused to Bud Fox News, “This is the happiest day since I was cast as Chewbacca in the upcoming Star Wars movie”.  Way to go, Brett.  It was quite a sight.

… and on set.
