Quick Monday Wrapup

Time is at a premium for old Mondesi, so I can't write much now...I'll be back later on in the day with some good stuff for you. In the meantime, here's a quick recap of what's going on:
The P-G says that Tomlin is the man for the Steelers. Looking back, the whole Cowher resigning/coach search/Tomlin hire has been a less-than-memorable experience for all involved.
The Colts are in the Super Bowl. Think of this: Peyton Manning was in every other commercial this year, and that was before he played in a Super Bowl. Next year he'll probably be battling the Rock Em Sock Em Robots, eating subs with Jared, and looking like a piece of food in a Vytorin commerical. But the greatest subplot from this outcome is that Bill Belichick gets to coach nine Chargers in the Pro Bowl.
The Bears will represent the NFC. Prepare yourself for multiple appearances of Jim Belushi over the next two weeks, as well as approximately 5,649 retrospectives on the 1985 Bears. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Colts are early 7-point favorites for the big game
Pitt plays like crap, somehow manages to get Marquette into OT, then ultimately loses with .9 seconds left.
Pens thrash the Maple Leafs 8-2, much to the dismay of all the Canadian visitors in town to witness the carnage.
LeSean "Shady" McCoy's Myspace page...yeah, this is pretty much everything you'd expect
Now sources say Michael Vick didn't have marijuana in that water bottle after all. A nation of haters is distraught.
Rush Limbaugh on the NFL: "Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

All I gotta say about McCoy's myspace page is...wow. He sounds like he's going to be a terrific teammate - headstrong, modest, and someone who will put the team before his own needs. All of the above is true in Bizarro world.

That about sums up a guy who's nickname is Shady.
