    HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE THIS GUY?

    Here's a story of a guy being in the right place . . . at the right time . . . after putting in his time. . .

    Jan. 24, 2006

    PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers signed linebacker Arnold Harrison from their practice squad Tuesday to replace Andre Frazier, who will miss the Super Bowl with a broken right ankle.

    Frazier was injured during the Steelers' 34-17 victory over Denver in the AFC championship game Sunday. Harrison is a 6-foot-3, 236-pound free agent from Georgia.

    To replace Harrison on their practice squad, the Steelers signed defensive tackle Grant Bowman. He spent the 2004 season on their practice squad but was released during training camp last summer.

    Don't practice squad players get rings too?

    A guy that worked out at my gym last year, was technically a member of the Red Sox, yet he was in Ohio watching them win the world series, and he got a ring. He did pitch in about 20 games for them during the regular season, though. He just wasn't on their active roster in the playoffs.

    Unless he is the guy that misses Alexander for a 50 yard TD, and costs them the game! Lot of pressure on this guy.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Don't know, but I think you had to be on the gameday roster due to the cost of the rings?!?!?!
