Quick, which Pittsburgh pro football team enjoyed an undefeated season in 2007? It sure wasn’t the Steelers. It was the Pittsburgh Passion, who went 12-0 in the Independent Women’s Football League and won a championship. Now they’ve got a DM and bus-shelter campaign from Garrison Hughes. This headline, in flowing script, reads, “We celebrate the delicate flower that is woman.” Followed by: “As well as the beauty of one delicate flower drilling the other delicate flower into the ground.” A second ad begins: “A woman’s hand can heal, teach, inspire and comfort,” then concludes, “It can also deliver a wicked head-slap when the ref’s not looking.” Steelers suck. Go Passion!
