Hines Ward? More like Awk Ward.
The Pittsburgh Steelers took the field yesterday dressed as the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, they were playing the actual Patriots. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the stunt was a Halloween costume and they “should have known the Patriots wouldn’t dress up.” Added QB Ben Roethlisberger: “maybe we were getting in their heads a little bit. But it was funny! We definitely won the costume contest.” The Steelers quarterback went as Tom Brady, wearing a Brady jersey and mop head as the long locks. He was especially proud of the mop head.
The Pats arrived at the stadium without any sort of costume; some of the players tried to put together an on the spot costume using puns. Linebacker Jermaine Cunningham claimed his all black attire meant he was “high school stage crew” others grabbed sticks insisting they were “melted snowmen.” No one bought it.
Once the initial confusion settled, both teams took the field in a 25-17 win by the Pats. There were 17 interceptions.
During his postgame press conference, Roethlisberger went on a 25 minute, unprovoked rant about
how Halloween was his favorite holiday because the ladies “dress like sluts.” Big Ben foamed from the mouth and began massaging his own nipples.
