Over the last year we’ve learned a few things about Steelers LB James Harrison:
- He’s a criminal – As evidenced by his 2008 arrest for assaulting his girlfriend, allegedly over their son’s baptism. Fortunately for Harrison, the classy Steelers organization had already reached their quota for releasing players who committed off-season crimes (sorry Cedrick Wilson!)
- He’s a thug. This was full on display during Harrison’s actual physical assault on Cards safety Aaron Francisco during Super Bowl XLIII
Vodpod videos no longer available.
- He’s incredibly hard to knock off balance. Unfortunately the entire Cardinals organization found this out the hard way as it seemed each and every person who has ever been affiliated with the Cards had a chance to knock Harrison out of bounds on the final play of the first half of the Super Bowl.
Well it’s time to add “Complete Moron” to the list. It seems that Harrison is rejecting an invitation to the White House along with his Steeler teammates because…well….let’s let him tell you:
If you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don’t win the Super Bowl…so as far as I’m concerned (Obama) would have invited Arizona had they had won
Harrison, who also passed on the White House trip when the Steelers won Super Bowl XL, apparently doesn’t understand basic concepts. So there you have it President Obama – if you want to be with the Steelers take some advice from Dionne Warwick:
Oh-oh, keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
Oh-oh, that’s what friends are for, oh-oh-oh
See the bold? In good times AND bad times. Take notes Mr. President. If the President learns anything from this, I believe the 2009 Detroit Lions should be expecting their White House invitation any day now.
