First off, we gotta show tons of love to Mikey and Bob from the Freak Show for living in an RV for a week for their annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign for Toys For Tots. You can read through all of their 2010 Stuff A Bus efforts at this link. The final tally for the 2010 version […]
Thanks to Benson for sending over his latest video last night. It is awesome. It takes a look back at Jeff Reed’s departure from the Steelers. Was it really that dramatic? From the description: “History of Da Stillers: Ep. #1 “The Kicker Gets Booted” “The History of Da Stillers” relives the untold stories of Stiller […]
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. We’re at the point where there’s enough unpublished unlicensed merch in the queue where we can pick pieces out to use before specific games. And since we’ve already alluded […]
Via the Beckett blog, here’s a fake baseball card of Derek Jeter as a Pittsburgh Pirate. Just…confusing.
I know I’ve already moved to focusing on the Ravens, but allow me one last moment to reflect on beating the Bills in OT. Well not so much reflecting as just watching this pantsless Steelers fan let out the hardest relief fist pump in the world. I know exactly how this dude felt. I think […]
I watched the last Ravens/Steelers game back at my parent’s house. When I first went to turn on their tv, my mom and dad had this unlicensed Steelers towel hanging underneath the screen. The Steelers lost that game. I will not be watching this week’s Steelers/Ravens game at their place, so I will blame the […]
[image via the freak show] Here’s the latest cover of The Source, featuring Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa in a sweet Penguins hat. It’s also the latest in a long line of hip hop artists wearing Pittsburgh sports stuff. Now he just needs the Snoop Penguins jersey and he’d be all set.
A win’s a win…every win counts the same…we’re still 8-3…and I’ve officially run out of tired clichés. 19-16 Steelers in OT. It has become mind-numbingly concerning that every game showcases the Jekyl and Hyde Steelers. The first 2 Pittsburgh drives consisted of 13 and 14 plays. Their last drive in OT was similar in number […]
Here‘s a classic Monday Night Football clip of Steelers great Jack Lambert putting an elbow into a Broncos WR’s helmet. Roger Goodell is probably going through all past game film to retroactively punish every player for headshots. Yeah, I realize these Goodell/fines jokes became stale weeks ago, but whatever. You try running a daily blog […]
Thanks to my sister Kate for this. It’s via X17. I don’t listen to Good Charlotte or really know much about the band or their songs or anything, so I went to Wikipedia. This dude is not from Pittsburgh, and I’ve found no real reference to this guy Benji Madden being a Steelers fan. Plus […]
Thanks to Ryan for the tip. He says: “Hey man, I read your blog daily and I love when you spot ‘burgh references in pop culture stuff so I thought I’d tip you off to one if you haven’t already seen it. I’m watching Late Night with Jimmy Fallon right now, and Jake Gyllenhaal was […]
Blah blah blah revenge for last year blah blah something something vengeance. 35-3 Steelers. Raiders suck. I missed the first ~21 minutes of the game (more on that below) while travelling back to NYC after visiting with my folks this weekend. Soon as I tuned in, I had other Steelers fans telling me about the […]
