Kwame Harris, Dimitri Geier, and Hines Ward

Sometimes when reading certain articles, I wince. This story on Kwame Harris and Dimitri Geier is very cringeworthy. Especially this part: The dispute started when Harris got upset at his friend, Dimitri Geier, for pouring soy sauce on a plate of rice. According to the paper, which was citing a suit filed in San Mateo County Superior Court, the two argued for seven minutes after the soy sauce was poured, and Harris said he wasn’t going to take Geier to the airport as he had said he would. When the two went to get Geier’s belongings from Harris’ car, Harris accused Geier of stealing his underwear and tried pulling the man’s pants down.

Sorry about that. Truly. Can I offer Hines Ward dressed as a zombie in The Walking Dead as a token of my penance?

Hines Ward, Steeler

I am not a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. The only terrible towel is the old, shredding one I take to the gym. But this saddens me.

Hines Ward, Steeler.

Hines Ward’s constant, ear-to-ear smile tucked behind a black facemask has been a lasting image for Pittsburgh Steelers fans the past 14 seasons.

They won’t see it again.

At least, not in a black-and-gold uniform.

The franchise’s all-time leader in just about every meaningful receiving category will be released sometime in the next two weeks said president Art Rooney II on the team’s website on Wednesday.

Wow. Hines played hard every down. I don’t know too much about him other than he followed the rules (to the best of my knowledge.) And he always appeared to be joyous.

His brother, Montgomery, supposedly has a chain of stores. Maybe Hines’ll go work there.

PS Today must be the day for veteran sport announcements. Boston Red Sox catcher and rock, Jason Varitek, is retiring. He has no desire to work at Montgomery Wards’ place, but he may start his own tech firm called appropriately Varitektech. . .
