Today, Ron Cook mentioned. Then he mentioned. Then he asked if he mentioned. Then he mentioned.
Ron Cook is getting dangerously close to what no one ever thought possible -- writing a sentence and then following up in the very next sentence by asking whether he mentioned what he mentioned in the previous sentence. In his column this morning, he mentions that Ben shrugged it off and then, after a quote from Roethlisberger himself, inexplicably asks whether he mentioned what he just mentioned. We've now said it 100 times, but if you haven't already, you have to read our rules for writing a Ron Cook column -- Ron Cook is clearly reading them.
Without further ado, here is today's Ron Cook poem, titled "Did I Mention?"
You have no idea.
You might say the man was relieved.
Now more than ever.
In each game, Roethlisberger shrugged off an early mistake.
Did I mention the man shrugged it off?
Did I mention the man was relieved?
Things could have been worse.
A lot worse, actually.
I have to tell you that was nice to see.
That he had two good arms to do it.
