Is A Hit Rap Song The Texans' Key To The Super Bowl?
Want a worthy Super Bowl pick? In the words of Wesley Snipes in 1992's Passenger 57, "Always bet on black," ... and yellow.
Don't thank Rocks Off for that profitable betting tip. Thank Wiz Khalifa, who is going to bring glory back to his frigid blue-collar hometown of Pittsburgh. It's only been two years since Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward and company hoisted the Lombardi trophy, which is an eternity in Steeler years.
In fact, Wiz could very well be the only artist in the history of sports to be credited for winning a Super Bowl without ever playing on an NFL team, if his hometown Steelers can pull off the big win Feb. 6. He may even get a damn ring.
It'll be like Sylvester Stallone getting inducted into the boxing hall of fame. Even though he never really fought and beat a Russian monster in the Soviet Union, you won't be able to argue.
Wiz's hit record "Black and Yellow" has been hailed as the unofficial anthem of the Steelers, and the city is going bananas over this very timely hit track. According to some media outlets the effectiveness of Wiz's track can be credited with playoff wins and possibly ... wait for it... serves as a competitive advantage next Sunday.
The power of music is something, isn't it?
MTV, because it's so good at sports journalism, has declared "the Steelers may have the advantage when it comes to the big game, as they have an anthem in Wiz Khalifa's 'Black and Yellow.'"
One question: Are the bookies aware of this?
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin reportedly whispered into Ben Roethlisberger's ear at the end of last Sunday's win against the Jets, "Make sure to call Wiz when you get home and thank his talented ass."
Rex Ryan actually now has a vendetta against Wiz, claiming like he did with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Payton Manning and New England Patriots head Bill Belichick coach, "It's personal."
Thirdage.com recently reported:
Wiz Khalifa performed his hit song at Heinz Field Stadium in Pittsburgh in front of more than 65,000 fans and the stadium went crazy for the young rapper's spirited lyrics. The Steelers, whose jerseys don the colors black and yellow received the extra boost that they needed to beat the Jets with a score of 24-19.
Really!? The song itself provided the extra boost?! Can someone get Wiz Khalifa's agent on the line and connect that person to Bob McNair for the love of God?
What's more ridiculous is that cover tracks for "Black and Yellow" are spreading like the bubonic plague. Tom Hanks, son for God's sake, is rapping now. If that's not disturbing enough, he did a "Black and Yellow" cover remix for Northwestern University. It's called "White and Purple." The humanity! Needless to say, Tom Hanks did not react well. He's in the hospital.
