Morning reports have Steelers' Troy Polamalu out for three to six weeks with a knee injury.
Alas, the Madden cover curse continues. Troy's on the cover this year, and now he's out.
Look up the careers of Vince Young (2008), Shaun Alexander (2007) and Michael Vick (2003).
Remember, it was here that you read about this curse and my suggestion of the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce curse.
Alas, there'll be no curse tonight when the Blitzmobile rolls into Mineral Ridge to let the students of Ridge and McDonald do battle in video football.
The tailgate party starts at 5 p.m. See you there.
