Despite impassioned objections from Joey Porter’s Pit Bulls, Chevy’s series of truck commercials featuring John Mellencamp’s odious “My Country” is following us around.

It’s bad enough that the ubiquitous spots interrupt and taint our enjoyment of NFL football to the point of ad nauseum, but when we’re inundated with them while watching a military history program on the History Channel at 1:30 a.m. on a Saturday, enough is enough!

Leave us in peace to watch a program about war. It’s all we’ve got.

Comings and Goings

Duce Staley, we hardly knew ya.

Walt Harris? See ya!

Et tu, Bill Cowher, after the end of the season?

Chidi Iwuoma, a hearty welcome back! We’ve missed you.

And these latest roster moves (Duce, gone; Chidi returns) beg the question: What if the Steelers had simply cut Duce and retained Chidi at the end of training camp?

What if, indeed, in this, the winter of our discontent.
