--We close with a thought-provoking email from reader Gregory C.:

"Last week's episode of Hard Knocks had Dennis Miller wearing a Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt. Isn't he supposed to be a big Steeler Fan? Didn't we let him drive around on 3 Rivers on a snowmobile and give him a key to the city? I might be one of the biggest Dennis Miller fans out there, but it might be time to change the locks."
Thoughts, Steeler Nation?

Chris Henry - you may know him fromhis recurring role as an alien on the 1980's TV show "Unsolved Mysteries."

I gave up on Dennis Miller when he began kissing Dubya's ass at every possible opportunity; it seemed like the ultimate hypocrite move by someone who'd previously appeared to have a very finely-attuned bullshit detector. I suppose this is just one more hypocrite move. Hell, maybe George Jr. gave him the shirt for Valentine's Day!

George is cool. The Cowboys aren't.

I almost swallowed my Copenhagen when I saw Dennis Miller in that shirt.

I gasped when I saw it, and Mrs. Blueline said, "what's wrong?"

I said, "Dennis Millers' wearing Cowboys t-shirt."

Mrs. Blueline: "So?"

Blueline: "So, he's from Pittsburgh; he's a Steelers fan. You don't do that."

Mrs. Blueline: "What's the big deal? Maybe he's just doing it for the show."

Blueline: (knowing Mrs. Blueline is from Boston) "That's like a Red Sox fan wearing a Yankees hat."

Mrs. Blueline: "Oh, then 'fuck him.'"
