Ever since the Steelers announced they were letting Hines Ward go, I have had to deal with the possiblitiy of an NFL lock out in my own home, or worse a complete with holding of all illegal proceedures.Forced to face the realization that I may very well be cited for illegal use of the hands all season, I can not begin to tell you guys how happy I was Thrusday when Woody texted me all excited!

Even though his career in football has ended, Hines Ward has decided to step into a new roll while remaining close to the game, according to reports Hines will be is the newest analyst for NBC's
"Football Night in America and in addition, Hines will serve as a studio analyst for college football and appear on "NBC SportsTalk" on NBC Sports Network.

Thank you "Baby Jesus!"
