Pennsylvania doesn't care about Jeremy Bloom.

So, my devoted fans (in the billions at last official count) already know that I was cut from the Pittsburgh Steelers today. Another slight setback in my life, but like Pat Tillman, I thrive on adversity and publicity. The public outcry will be long and loud.

Like the Steelers even gave me a chance? So what if I fair-catch everything? Those guys running at me are big. I had that one end-around where I just got blasted before I reached the line of scrimmage. Hello, blocking?

I'm going to reassess my goals. Maybe football isn't for me. Maybe I am no bigger than the ballboy. Maybe I should ultimately thank the NCAA for denying my request to play at CU while accepting endorsement money. After all, all of that press was what basically got me drafted in the first place. Maybe I am all hype?

Fuck that. Know why? Because I am Jeremy-Fucking-Bloom. I'm an Olympian. I AM football. Now I have two NFL teams that will regret cutting me. You'll see me again, Planet Earth.

I never made it to the pros, but remember watching the Steelers at camp thinking I could have made it. Ha, in my dreams...but I still think about it everyday.
Don't give up or you will be thinking about it everyday for the rest of your life too.
