Ahh… #@# it! I’ll just turn!

YJ-Turn

 

This pic exemplifies what this blog is all about… highlighting people, as my grandfather used to say, who think their ARSE doesn’t stink!  People that only think of themselves!  The photo was taken at a spot famous for this, the turn from the Liberty Bridge onto Forbes Avenue.

The tweet that came with this pic was:

The turning from the wrong lane #jagoff is one of the worst ways to jagoff in all of jagoffery

This move mainly works if you’re a young woman with a great smile…. you look at the car on the left that you’re about to crash into if they don’t see you coming, you smile, give that little “Oooopsie! I need to get over there but for some reason I happen to be all they way over here!” wave and BOOM.. you’re over.  But for everyone else? This becomes an “I don’t care what my insurance deductible is, I’ll take the side of your van off if you cut in front of me,” situation.

Hey Van Moron-in (that didn’t really work into a Van Morrison play as  well as I hoped that it would), is your “white van” appointment, where you will probably park along the curb with your four-way flashers on and block OTHER traffic four HOURS cause you’re in a “white van,”  that important?

For crissakes, just go straight and let the irritating GPS voice, repeat, “RECALCULATING, RECALCULATING, RECALCULATING, RECALCULATING” for a little bit while you figure this out!

I mean, it’s as simple as taking 5 extra minutes out of YOUR life and making a simple box…going one more block, turning left, then turning left, then turning left again  to get  to where you wanted to be WITHOUT jerking around all of the drivers behind you, Ya Jagoff!

Had A Great Time At Recipe for Hope!

YJ-Recipe

Keep reading… at the end of this post, there are chances to win your very own package of Ernie Ricci’s Italian (pronounced as EYE-talian in proper Pittsburghese).

Here are some pics of Saturday night’s Hair Peace Charities “Recipe for Hope” event.

I was paired up with Robby Ismanakowsi, of Root Sports Pittsburgh to dish out freshly made Ricci’s Hot Sausage.

The pot of freshly made Ernie Ricci’s Hot Sausage! That nobody could resist.

We stole a page out of the McDonald’s game plan…we wafted the aroma out into the middle of the room and the guests flocked to us like lemmings with their plates, forks and Pavlovian drool.

Our “Official Pose”

OK.. so this might NOT be our best “Look at us we’re eating the sausage” pose.  But at least Robby put the spoon near his mouth.  Me? I look like I’m feeding my belly button for some reason!  But we were damned good at serving up that sausage!

(Forgive yourself for thinking “That’s what SHE said” after that last sentence)

Check out the 3 Stanley Cup Rings on Phil Bourque.  To compete, Robby and I slipped on our high school class rings but,  but nobody seemed impressed for some reason.

To be honest… I have no idea what I’m doing behind them… I think it’s my “Hey I’m in a picture, I better do something WHACKY but I really look like an dork” pose!

Cara was next to us.  She had made 350 Buffalo Chicken Bite appetizers.  I’m pretty sure I ate 30-40 of ‘em.  I felt guilty so I let her and Scott dig into the pot of sausage.

We met Linda and Susan.  Celebrities in their own right.  They said if I put their picture on the blog, they would read it soooooooooo there ya have it!

This is “Munch,” food writer from the Post Gazette (@PGMunch on Twitter). I sooooo expected him to have a bag on his head or a black bar across his eyes!

By the way, he served an unbelievably awesome Butternut Squash soup.   I’m gonna write an article about it.. “Ya Jagoff Goes To Munch’s House For Soup.

Finally, Iceburgh! If this was me, I guarantee  a few drops of sausage sauce would have found it’s way to the one little white spot in the center of the Pens logo.   It got a little odd when he quietly handed me his resume to give to Ernie Ricci, in the event that Ernie hires a Hot Sausage mascot!

Thanks to Bonny Diver and all of the volunteers who did an UNBELIEVABLE job Saturday. Yinz all made everyone feel so welcome.

Thanks to Ernie Ricci for the cooking and donating the hot sausage.
