The Parking Lot “Scatter Drill”

YJ-BumperCars

 

You’ve been there… after a hockey game, after a Steelers game, Pitt Game, Pirates game and even after church!

ESPECIALLY church!!  All of those nice, sweet ol’ people that just said an hour of prayers… they get in their cars and become CRAZEEEEEEEEE Jagoffs as they try to beat each other to the last open table for post-church brunch at Eat n Park !

And after a big sports event.. everyone thinks they have the “special short cut” that allows them to get 2 cars FURTHER AHEAD than if they would have simply gotten in the line, like everyone else, as they pulled out of their parking spot.  Nope.. they have to zig-zag between cars and and make their OWN lanes!!!

Of course, sometimes there IS that driver that FORCES other drivers to make their own lane as they sit and sit and sit and sit….. while they let, what seems to be, the entire Steelers Fan Base in front of them because they are afraid to edge their car forward!

This ain’t Kennywood BUMPER CARS!  Some of you probably STILL don’t know how to back up… (HINT: it’s NOT by turning the steering wheel all the way to the RIGHT!)

Anyone ever heard of patience… taking your turn… or COURTESY, Ya Jagoffs??????

Pittsburgh Beach “Photo Caption Contest”

PittsburghBeach

 

If Pittsburgh Had a Beach …

Happy Saturday by the way… something a little different today.

Every once in awhile a new idea pops up around the Burgh that deserves attention, some good, some bad – and some to epic proportions! Which brings us to this photo-illustration from Bryan Brunsell, owner of PGH 4 Life Apparel Company.

“The idea popped into my head one day this summer looking at images of the Point and it’s three rivers – and thinking about how much Pittsburghers love the beach, but have to drive long hours every summer to get to one. So I worked some photoshop magic to create this fan-art image” says Bryan.

We agree! The response has been overwhelming on social media with retweets, comments and OMG moments from fans – some who really want this to happen! Because of this, PGH 4 Life Apparel is running a Photo Caption Contest – all responses are eligible for a FREE T-shirt of your choice at www.pgh4life.com.

Rules:

Huh What?

This picture was sooooooooooooooo exciting when it came in on Facebook yesterday, that it HAD to bump today’s regularly schedule post!

Yes!  This is BREAKING JAGOFF NEWS!  This just in!

This photo was posted with the following simple statement::

I think someone flunked math!

FACT!!!!  LOL.. a big community celebration is happening in the community of Bessemer, Lawrence County, Pa!!

Now, it’s hard for ME to try and pick on this because, as you know from reading these posts, typos are easy to miss. But, I’d have to think that, when we raise the 100-year celebration banner of YaJagoff.com 97 and a half years from now, I am PROBABLY going to have someone check over my work for typos… including the math!

But wait.. there’s that age old debate of, when you turn 1, are you really 1 or are you really 2 because you are starting your SECOND year of life?  Never mind.. that doesn’t work out as an alibi.

So does the sign mean, someone MISSED the the century celebration LAST year so they are making up for it THIS year?  OR does it mean that someone doesn’t know how to place 2012 and 100 into columns and just add down the columns?  (Our favorite Math teacher, Sister Anecita would NOT be proud!)

If you go to the Century Celebration Facebook page, you’ll see this shield….which says 1913-2013.

Surely there is some good story behind this but WE can’t figure it out.  Would love to hear from some Bessmer-er-ers including the sign painter (I’d certainly be double checking HIS/HER invoice for math mistakes!  But in the meantime, all that WE know is its great entertainment for the rest of us.  And the best news is, now all of you know about the Bessemer Centennial thanks to the mistake on the sign.

Congratulations on 100 OR 101 year Bessemer!!  Have fun at the celebrations!

Just gotta tell ya, thank GAWD nobody from your town is in charge of the  Today Show Willard Scott “Smuckers” 100 year-old Birthday segment, Ya Jagoffs!
