The Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers football game ended in disaster in London for the Steelers. That makes the Steelers 0-4 for the season. We Steelers fans must now accept the obvious: the Steelers are not very good. And maybe we Steelers fans should accept something else: the next two to three years will be rebuilding years for the team.
It doesn’t matter by how much the Steelers loss to the Vikings. When a team is 0-4, the score doesn’t matter. A loss is a loss is a loss.
Vikings 34, Steelers 27

The Old Soldier plans to be at Nico’s in Little Italy Saturday night for karaoke. I’ve been doing my breathing and stretching exercises, going over the three songs I hope to sing and thinking about karaoke as performance art.
When a karaoke singer has the lyrics of a song memorized, when the singer can keep eye contact with the audience, the singer turns karaoke into a concert-like experience for the audience.
So, if you can sing and if you have the lyrics memorize, you have a huge advantage over the other singers who have not gone to the length you have gone to. You are a performance artist.
