It’s universally accepted in pro sports that, in the press box, there shall be no cheering.
On Sunday night, our pal Mike Tunison of KSK and SportingNews.com and probably some other places (he used to pinch hit here from time to time) was doing his damnedest to comply with that edict in Baltimore, once his Steelers took the lead in the fourth quarter. (He opted to express his euphoria instead on his Twitter feed.)
On Monday night, former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert apparently had forgotten to take his laptop to the Superdome.
Even Colts president Bill Polian, who’s notorious for displaying the full palate of emotions in the press box, would have to agree that Hebert not only crossed the line, but jumped over it while whooping and hollering and pumping his fists.
