This picture, which ran in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, makes us happy in a way we can't quite put our finger on.
Yes, she's a nun, and yes, she's a nun holding a Terrible Towel while sitting in between paintings of Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu. What, you think that's strange or something? Come on! (She also seems to have an '80s era cellphone.)
No, a picture like this reminds us just how close, folks, we are to the NFL season. It's already August 11, people. We are less than a month away. We sit, like our holy sister here, patiently, calmly, hands in lap, eager but still in control.
And then, soon, we get to explode. God, we can't wait. You got it, sister.
