Santonio Holmes Will Always Remember Pittsburgh As The Place He Won His First ESPY

In a statement published today on his official site, The Official Website of Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santon10 Holmes (he replaced the “io” with “10”, get it?), Holmes took a moment to thank “Steelers Fans for the Great Memories” as well as acknowledge the mistakes he has made in the past, stating he has “learned from them” and that God has provided him with the opportunity to make a clean start.” I’m sure Steelers fans are thrilled for him.

But perhaps more important than the Super Bowl victory, Super Bowl MVP awards and the tremendous support Steelers fans have shown him through all the arrests, dong photos and lawsuits, Holmes will always fondly remember that it was due to his accomplishments achieved while wearing the beloved Black and Gold that he received the esteemed honor of winning his first ESPY.

As one chapter of my life comes to a close, another chapter is just beginning. I would like to sincerely thank all of my fans for making my four years as a Steeler a memorable one. This is the team where I won my first Super Bowl ring, received the Super Bowl XLIII MVP and also won my first ESPY award. How can I move forward and not take those feelings and experiences with me. Those are the ones that left such a great taste in my mouth and wanting to strive for more. The support and encouragement you have given me from day one has been such an inspiration that I will continue to carry with me.

There are few things far more honorable than landing a coveted ESPY. Although he never did win that Cable Ace Award (or a Grammy, for that matter) while with the Steelers and that is something that will always leave a bad taste in Santonio’s mouth.
