As regular readers know, yours truly is a long-time subscriber of the Steelers Digest. A life line in the pre-internet, pre-Sunday Ticket days, I still subscribe mainly to get access to the commentary of Bob Labriola, and some of the other publications.
At some point, I am not sure when, I settled into a ritual of reading Labriola’s column the day before the game.
I never bought too much into superstition, but I did not read his column until right before the kickoff of the Bears game last year. You know the result.
This year the same thing happened with the Baltimore game….
As fate would have it, I forgot to read the Digest yesterday….
….The Steelers spooked this superstition and came away with the win, but man, it was close!
