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 […]

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. […]
