Good Lord! Get to your DVR!

Had I not been watching KDKA this morning, I would have missed a promo for a life-changing story that will be on tonight's 5 o'clock news. The promo advised that we'll all be able to catch up on the life of Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda. An item on the station's Web site says, "Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda is out for the season, so what's he doing with all his free time?" The correct answer is, "Who gives a rat's rectum," but then I remembered that if a Steelers player has a moderately interesting bowel movement, it leads the TV news. A while back, WTAE in Pittsburgh offered us a look at Steelers safety Troy Polamalu as he contemplated impending fatherhood. OK, people love the Steelers, and Polamalu is a star player. But Daniel Sepulveda? The guy has played one year for the team and has been out since training camp in July, when he tore the ACL in his knee. And he's a punter. I have to admit that I've been remiss about keeping up with Danny Boy. It's true. I hadn't given a single thought to his daily routine - presumably going to the grocery store, a little bathroom time, eating, sleeping - since he went on the injured reserve list. Thank the Lord that KDKA is on the job, bringing us these stories of global import.

Ain't that the truth... I had an EXTREMELY interesting bowel movement and all I could get to cover it was the Weekly Recorder :-)

The better story is "How's Jim Boone doing?"

Isn't the more interesting story the rags-to-riches saga of the desperately needed long snapper?
