Nike’s Steelers Uniform Concept Is The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Seen

[image via. click here for full size] Reebok has been the official NFL uniform provider for the past few years. Their contract with the league runs out after the 2011 season (if there is one), and Nike is taking over beginning in 2012. Sure, this is just a Photoshop concept and likely won’t ever meet […]

Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Black Terrible Towel Doormat

Thanks to Ed for this. He says: “Found this welcome mat at a Walgreens store in Youngstown.   No logo, no team name – but it is Black and Gold – and who doesn’t love Yinzer references. Of course I bought it.” Top-5 purchase of all time. Aside from my standard I-hate-any-fake-Terrible-Towel-merch-cos-there’s-likely-no-donation-going-to-the-Allegheny-School feelings, I can’t completely […]

The Dude From The Worst Zelda Games Ever Is A Pirates Fan. Just Go With It

‘Bout to get all meme-y up in here. Gonna have to set this up with the help of Know Your Meme for those of you that don’t know classically-horrible video games and Internet subculture. There were 3 Legend of Zelda games released for the Phillips CD-i console that are generally noted as the worst Zelda […]

[Unnamed] Steelers Pregame Show

Whoa. It’s another show! Cotter and I decided now would be a good time to bust out episode 2 of the [Unnamed] Steelers Pregame Show before the Raiders game. We got at you last time back during the bye week, so enough time has passed for you to want to see and listen to us […]

Dave Parker Loved 7Up

Man, you know I love looking at classic commercials that featured Pittsburgh sports stuff (1, 2, 3). It’s especially cooler when we get one with Pirates players, cos it’s hard to remember them being culturally relevant enough to star in a national ad. Well here’s one of ’em…an old spot for 7Up featuring Dave Parker […]

Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Three Time Hockey Champs

Thanks to my bud Penshead for this. He snapped this pic when he was back in Pittsburgh for the opening 2 games at Consol Energy Center. There’s a lotta little generic stuff that make up this complete design. We got PITTSBURGH HOCKEY listed rather than the Pens. Actually, the PITTSBURGH HOCKEY name is repeated twice, […]

Clint Hurdle Is Turning Around Every Pirate

Yesterday, word leaked that Clint Hurdle was in line to be the next Pirates manager. Conveniently, Somalian pirates went and freed a British couple after a year+ of captivity at the same time. I like this guy’s moxie. Go Buccos.

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

Third straight late game coupled with a stupid loss? Yeah, not getting real deep into this one. I’m only one tired, disappointed person. 39-26 Patriots. Vomit. <— That woulda been enough of a recap right there. Ben: Only guy who really showed up to play. Woulda had at least 2-3 more TDs if Hines played. […]

Steelers Weatherkid In Baltimore Is Awesome, Ballsy

Meet Iysiah Maull-Christy, our newest national hero. Iysiah recently appeared on WBFF FOX45 Baltimore to show the weatherman that even a kid can do his job. Iysiah went through the Sky Watch weather like a pro, before getting congratulations from the weatherman and news anchor. They tried to assume that Isyiah was a Ravens fan, […]

Mongolian Rappers Love The Pirates

Rap week? Thanks to Mitch for sending this over. It’s Mongolian rapper Tatar wearing a fantastic Pirates hat. He joins this awesome list of hip hop artists rocking Pittsburgh sports gear and/or lyrics: Wiz Khalifa/Layzie Bone Eminem Wiz Khalifa Mobb Deep Some cats from McKeesport DJ Paul from Three 6 Mafia maticulous Method Man/Bun B […]

Black And Yellow Remix Features Layzie Bone And A Steelers Reference

Thanks to my sister for the initial tip on this. She knows that I’m a big Layzie Bone fan, and made a passing mention of him having a new song. Turns out it’s a remix of Wiz Khalifa’s Black and Yellow. As a Layzie Bone fan from Pittsburgh, this blew my mind on several levels. […]

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

Welcome to Tuesday’s Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker. I’ll give you a few seconds to figure that out while I dive right into this one. 27-21 Steelers. Lookin’ at just the beginning of the game, it looked like a 40-point blowout in the making. Though a few turnovers, some shoddy pass D and a little […]

A Bulldozer Crushing A Bengals Hard Hat Is Awesome

After a full Sunday with no Steelers football, our team takes on Cincinnati  tonight for Monday Night Football. To commemorate, here is video of a bulldozer crushing a Bengals hard hat. It is strangely compelling. I mean, it’s a simple-enough concept, but watching it to fruition just brings a warmth to my heart. Plus, after […]


Late last night my bud Seth, who runs the incomparable Post-Gazette hockey blog Empty Netters, mentioned the absurd notion that the paper
