Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Geno Must Break You

Thanks to Penshead for this. He says: “my latest addition to the collection of Geno shirts“ It’s true, his love of Geno has resulted in some awesome generic shirts sent my way. Here’s 2 directly related to Malkin (1, 2) and 3 more that still feature his number in some way (1, 2, 3) as […]

Mario Lemieux Scoring A Goal In 2010

Presented without comment. It’s Mario Lemieux on ice in a Pens jersey scoring a goal in 2010 at the CONSOL Energy Center. ‘Nuff said.

Mustachioed Steelers Fan On Conan

Thanks to my bud Pat for snapping this pic. This guy was on Conan last night. That’s about all I can tell you. He’s wearing a Joe Greene jersey. I am a vital source of information. I tried flipping Conan on right after Pat emailed, but I was too slow on the draw and ended […]

Troy Polamalu = AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Didn’t we just do this? Like, a few days ago? Steelers safety/superhuman Troy Polamalu earned his second-straight AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. That is nuts. If you are the primary reason your team wins 2 consecutive division games late in the season, you better believe the NFL will reward you with this Player […]

You’re A Mean One, Mr. Commish

Thanks to Benson for sendin me his latest yesterday. With the holidays fast approaching, it’s always fun to watch classics like How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I won’t play. I mean, this is really the only acceptable time of year to bust out the Christmas specials. Benson parodies the You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch […]


[slightly-larger image here] My friend Sid had a Christmas party at his place in Hoboken on Saturday. He lives in an area that’s pretty far from the train, and I haven’t been to his apartment since last year’s Christmas party. Before heading there this weekend, I remembered this framed print that he has hanging on […]

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

The Steelers have quietly won four in a row, which doesn’t make the loss to the Patriots sting any less, but does show how a team like this responds after their weakest point of the season. And after 2-straight 3 point games, the Steelers (and the defense in particular) looked to make a statement. That […]

30 Rock Had A Ton Of Steelers Stuff

Last night’s episode of 30 Rock was predictably funny throughout. It also included a ridiculous amount of Steelers references. I like to laugh and I like Pittsburgh sports, so that’s a great combo. First, Jenna Maroney, played by Jane Krakowski, flips through a photo album to see a picture of her and her ex-boyfriend in […]

Troy Polamalu = AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Congrats to Troy Polamalu for netting AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. So we get to show love here with the typical old/rare pic of the winner looking awkward with random female fans. Honestly, this picture (taken from here) is nearly 5 years old. Troy was still a young guy with seemingly limitless potential. […]

Pittsburgh Penguins Guns Are Awesome

I was a fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but to this point haven’t picked up the newer Black Ops title in the franchise. This might hasten a purchase. At some point or another, you can get or make Pittsburgh Penguins skating penguin logos for your guns. That is sweet. Video below:

Sidney Crosby’s Pittsburgh Reindeers Jersey Sucks

[stick tap to puck daddy for this] What you are seeing is an Upper Deck Sidney Crosby holiday hockey card that is a direct result of Sid’s first professional hockey card endorsement. You are also seeing a horrible jersey crest featuring a skating reindeer instead of a skating penguin and some awful green accent colors. […]
