Get Engorged: Viagra For Your Season

Yea, I'm getting a rising sensation, alright...

I participate in fantasy football. I did not say "play" as that would suggest some type of physical exertion being involved. You don't play "Dungeons & Dragons," dipshits, you take part in it. Same with sex, for that matter, Level 8 "Mage." I'm not one of these off-the-deep-end guys that has 24 teams and tracks which receivers lead the league in YAC (one point each!). I am in one league. I have one team. The smack-talking and one night a year of binge drinking it constitutes completely validate my involvement as far as I'm concerned. So, yea, I bought one of those Fantasy Football Ranking Magazines the other day to see who I should draft. It took until page 32 until I read a SINGLE GODDAMN THING about the Steelers. So I bout another; page 29. And another; page fucking 33. The returns of Tom Brady, Favre and Vick, The "Wildcat" and Mark Sanchez all took precedence.

Look, I don't say this to decry Fantasy Sports, far from it. They draw non-fans to the sport, give casual fans a reason to watch just about every game and expedite the divorce precedings of avid fans. And this slighting isn't germane to fantasy coverage, either. Of course, Ben's joke of a litigation issue had it's few days mention mid-summer, but otherwise it's as if The Steelers' earning of a 6th Championship simply cannot be book-ended with a 7th.

I get it. We're boring. We win without as much flash as most and we don't mix with celebrities, have front office fisticuffs or appear on the police blotter as much as some teams. Hell, Ben has to donate a shitload to regional police organizations just to keep them up to date with the Bengals' latest arsenals.

I'm not ashamed to say I openly wondered what it would take to motivate me as a fan this year. Would repeating be enough? For a long time watching and then passing the Niners and Cowboys in Lombardis was a big motivator. Sure, I'll always hate the Ratbirds and want to paste our Ohio divisional opponents (SEE: Pathetic Franchises). I'll always be found at Heinz or in front of the biggest HDTV that can be commandeered on Sundays. But would the FIRE be there?

But the more I read and hear, the more I realize The Steelers are an afterthought. Many will concede that we'll take the division, though not all. But as far as being the "Top Dog"? Forget about it, only Chahida at ESPN things we're #1. Perhaps this is because it is so difficult to repeat? But who/what did we really lose? 2 defensive starters and our 3rd wide out? The fuck?

This slight, at least as far as predictions are concerned, pisses me right off. I wrote about this last year, how The Steelers' simply are too boring for their own good in this manner. Fine. Myself (and the Rooneys, I'm sure) prefer it that way.

Of course, if we make it to the playoffs all sorts of assholes will take credit, saying they "called it." from the start. They'll run story's like "Can #7 take the Steelers to a 7th?" and Dynastic comparison pieces. BUT WHERE IS THAT SHIT NOW? Crickets fucking chirping.

More on why I'm getting fired up next week...

The other night on one of the pre-season games, one of the douche-nozzle talking heads, when discussing teams that run the 3-4 defense, mentioned the Steelers dead last as an afterthought. While I don't mind the Steelers flying under the radar, some recognition might be nice. Anyway, what I really mean is, thanks for the picture.

Dude, you spend too much time around the crappy ass "writers" at KSK. They are seriously ruining you thought patterns.

You're a Steelers fan with a book in print, and you're fretting about what others are saying about your team in print?

You must separate reality from fantasy. How does one win in fantasy? By drafting players from teams that score a bunch of points because that HAVE to score bunches of points. I won one of my two leagues last year because I drafted players from the highest scoring teams (read, no defense). Skip the magazines and just join a info warehouse for fantasy like FBG.

Fuck all the preseason prognosticators I say...this is why we are die hard fans.

Enjoy the NFL as a Steelers fan, and good luck in the fantasy realm.

a) I'm Not Ape.
b) It's not just the fantasy media, as I said.
c) I do enjoy the season as a fan. Thoroughly.

Personally, I prefer they not talk about us. But maybe that's because of the Cowher Era and expecting us to shit the bed when we're the favorites and to crack skulls when we're a 6th seed with no chance or a team with a flawed offensive line that can't get it done.

Generic Viagra is a prescription drug that takes care of the physical dilemma of erectile dysfunction in men. Sildenafil citrate is the major component of generic viagra pills that dilates the arteries in the penis and allows filling of blood in small spaces of penis that hardens and gets erect.

, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.

Generic Cialis functions by inhibiting the action of an enzyme, known as PDE5. Generic Levitra helps increase the flow of blood to the penis, so it may help men with ED get and keep an erection that lasts long enough to have successful sex.
