Cinco de Mayo and Yinzers

YJ-CincodeMayo

Sooooo… it’s Cinco de Mayo.  Here are the top ways to be a Cinco de Mayo Jagoff!

  • Make fun of the day by saying it’s named after your ex-spouse and calling it “Psycho de Mayo.”
  • Calling it Cinco de MAY-yo (As if it is a day to celebrate Hellman’s).  This is similar to calling the place where the Penguins play, The Con-SAWL Energy Center.
  • Telling everyone at work about “the worm” in the bottom of  a Tequila bottle that you SWEAR a friend ate one time and almost died.
  • Buying a 12-pack of Taco Bell hard/soft tacos for the office lunch room.  Those are about as authentic as a John Boehner tan.
  • Using a sharpie to scratch out the O’ of of your St. Patty’s Day drinking shirt to writing an o at the end of your name to make it sound Mexican.
  • Wearing your Bradshaw team jersey to the bar.
  • Wearing your Bradshaw team jersey to the bar and tucking it in your jeans shorts.
  • Getting drunk and telling your Mexican friends that you’re sorry that their fellow country man, “de Mayo” had to die “that way” but you like what he stood for AND you like the way that they chose to celebrate the Holiday in his honor.

So go have fun Cinco-celebrators… just remember, tomorrow at work, it’s much better to be telling the stories about the drunk idiots at the bar than to be the topic of the stories, at work, about the drunk idiot at the bar.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, Ya Jagoffs!

Play Games for a Good Cause – Next Weekend

YJ-Chachi

Chachi Plays for Kids is back for its fourth and installment,  is scheduled for May 9th and 10th, 2014.

The gaming schedule is posted on www.chachiplays.com, and is anticipated to be filled with a variety of games, including Tetris, Mario Kart and Street Fighter/Tekken tournaments. Event organizers have also announced the Chachi Open – an 18-hole game of Wii Golf.

This year’s benefactors will be  ToonSeum  and Dreams of Hope.

Watch Chachi’s intense work out as he gets ready for the gaming marathon!

Chachi Plays for Kids began four years ago when Anthony “Chachi” Walker’s decided he wanted to do something to help improve the city he loves. “I just wanted to do something to give back to the community,” said Walker. “There are plenty of  kids out there who don’t really get a childhood, either due to economic or societal situations they’re in. If I can give those  kids an opportunity to be a kid, that’s what I’d like to do.”

The idea for a video game marathon came from Child’s Play (www.childsplaycharity.org). Mr. Walker realized it was the perfect opportunity for him to combine his love for video games and support his community. “It’s a great feeling at the end of  the day to know that I was able to help make some kid’s day a little better,” noted Walker.

During the inaugural event in February 2011, Mr. Walker raised more than $2,700 for the Mario Lemieux Foundation as part of the Make Room for Kids fundraiser and was acknowledged for his efforts by the Pittsburgh City Council.  Last year’s event raised $4,357 to support the ToonSeum and Art Expression.
