I know I nearly had one. I just hope someone who loves this guy unplugs his TV on Sunday, just in case.

I still maintain it was just a reaction to an insufficient amount of beer consumed.

He had a heart-attack in a bar so alcohol was part of the problem. I can guarantee you one thing, he wasn't the only one who had a heart-attack here in Pittsburgh. I think most everyone's heart skipped a beat when Bettis fumbled.

I feel for the guy. I have a hard time watching my Steelers in a close game, I just get so damn nervous I feel like I could have a heart attack too.

Maybe he pulled a Peyton, waved off the EMTs so he could finish his beer and cigarette, shot of bourbon for the road.

Nice story that was shamefully exploited on the Dan Patrick show. He had the Bus speak to the guy in the hospital. Some of Patricks questions made me feel uncomfortable. The traditional "how does it feel?, line of questioning was used". He even made a crude joke: "I wonder if the Bus would be held responisble for his death if he hadnt made it.. The Bus and the heart attack fan handled themselves in a very nice manner. Dan Patrick was the puttz. It was then time to turn the radio off.

I am not a steelers fan but i wanted them to win, during the game my blood pressure was off the scale especially after the palomalu pick that wasn't. I am a huge trojans fan, during their game against ND i thought i was going to have a stroke or something before the 4th and 9.
