In response to our post about a crucial, missed penalty in last Sunday’s Superbowl, witz.org reader Brandon Freeberg, a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan, sent us the photo above, and the following message:

OH MY GOD, WHY WASN’T A FACE-MASK PENALTY CALLED FOR THIS????? THIS GAME HAD TO HAVE BEEN RIGGED. OH GOD, AND BABY JESUS!

Howard Stern’s new intern: New York Giant Antonio Pierce!

From the awesome files: Howard Stern‘s new intern, at least for the rest of this week, is New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce.

Antonio is apparently interested in broadcasting, and much like hockey player Sean Avery hooking up an internship at Vogue magazine, he reached out to the Stern show to see if he could help out.

Antonio spent much of his internship on air, talking about his wife Jocelyn Pierce, his recent accusations of neglecting his pitbulls, and the art of towel snapping.

P.S. Go Big Blue.

Manny Ramirez: “Who cares – there’s always next year!”

People may rag on witz.org for being fans of the Arizona Diamondbacks (sample quip: “All that history, stretching back to 1998!”), but we will take the D’Backs anyday over the Boston Red Sox.

Despite their 2004 World Series Win, the Bo’Sox fans are usually happiest when losing, so they have something to complain bitterly AND endlessly. Which leads us to Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez‘s recent comments about the teams 3-1 deficit in the ALCS:

“If it doesn’t happen, who cares?” Ramirez said Wednesday afternoon. “There’s always next year. It’s not like it’s the end of the world.”

Awesome Manny! With comments like that, we’ll take our expansion team over the “gang of idiots”.

Plus, BOB is nicer than Fenway.
