So as everyone knows Hines Ward retired from the Pittsburgh Steelers this past week. Its definitely good to see him retire in the Black & Gold and see him go off in a good way. He was one of the best receivers in the league and step down when he needed to. I’m not a big sports guy, never have been; I’m a man by biology alone (and what a biology…I’m sorry for that folks). But the first time I saw Steeler game was when I was in High School. My dad never watched games with me, but a good friend of mine did. His name was Aslam, and he was big guy who had a big love for sports. Like I said I wasn’t much for sports, so I didn’t think I would really get into it. We gathered around his TV and I remember seeing Rothlisberger launch a ball down the field and Hines Ward receiving and running it in for a touchdown. I cheered louder than anyone for this team! From then on, I watched almost every game only in hopes that Hines would pull of some crazy catch and win us the games. I would yell louder and more obnoxiously than anyone in the room when the Patriots would have 4 defenders try to take down the man in #86. So, thank you Hines for getting me into the game and pretending like I knew what I was talking about and blowing out a few of my vocal chords.
