Do we get to taste test?  Yeeeees we do!

Pittsburgh was once known for whiskey MORE than football!

Who in the heck was John Wigle?

How Toilet Paper Tracks to Thief (Not DNA)


Yeah… but the linkage via the toilet paper was not how you might suspect like DNA or stuck to the heel of his shoe.

Details are: (See full WTAE Story)

29 year old Eric Frey ALLEGEDLY hands the pizza guy a note announcing his intentions of wanting $300 and that he had a gun.

Eric Frey gets caught by police still in the pizza shop because they’re fast to respond to a panic button notification.. well, faster than the pizza shop person was at reading Eric’s note on the toilet paper.

Eric has the perfect alibi, “______ made me do it!”  Maybe a large, bearded man.  Which is probably less frightening then a large, bearded woman.

The problem is, ya know when you write with a pen on something soft, how the impression bleeds through? Well, guess what the police found on the E-man’s TP at home?

HINT: It was not the winter emergency shopping list of  more toilet paper, milk and bread.  But the total of cash needed was right on target, $300!

E-man, (calling ya that cuz we feel like we could be buds) too bad you didn’t go to Catholic grade school with me and take Sister Lucy’s hand-writing class.  The police would have never been able to track ya because, in her writing class, she would pull the short hairs on the back of your neck if she found you pressing too hard.

And we’re not ones to do stupid jokes so we will refrain from stating that, it looks like you made an IMPRESSION on the cops and, on good behavior, perhaps you can get your record WIPED clean but, right now, you’re kind of in a pile of CRAP. Where in the world did you learn that write-on-TP trick?  For crissakes, do you know how much I got yelled at, as a kid, for using a half roll of toilet paper because I didn’t want to get a speck of poop on my fingers? My mother would have you water-boarded for wasting toilet paper on a silly robbery note!

Next robbery job—–go steal some photo copy paper from your job or the local library so that you have some legit scratch paper at home, Ya Jagoff!

Steelers Recap and Tips on Driving Into Pittsburgh Tunnels



Thanks to @JohnLucas18 for the Pic of Ben!

The Steelers are the AFC North Champs!  Should we fire Haley?  Fire Tomlin?

Wait! No hate today.  Here’s a post-game follow-up and a way to beat the Squirrel Hill Tunnel Monster Fraidy-cats.

1) Ben played with “a stomach virus” last night.  Key footage was him running into the locker room right after the Steelers first possession. Couldn’t see his face but he definitely had those “Oh GAWD I’m gonna @#@# myself and I have bright yellow pants on” fast-feet as he was running down the steps.  Thus-ly, the fantastically, magical Christmas Vacation, Cousin Eddie imagery from Twitter-er-er John Lucas.

2) Le’Veon Bell left the game with some kind of knee injury.  All hospital emergency departments were checked and it would appear 2,421 people checked in with chest pains, depression and stroke symptoms within 20 minutes of the play.  All 446 Pittsburgh area bridges will have police, please-don’t-jump-its-only-game guards if by chance the report on Le’Veon Bell comes back that he cannot play against the Ravens next Saturday.

Watching Le’Veon Bell BEFORE the injury gave me an idea.

If people drove through the Pittsburgh tunnels like Le’Veon Bell powers through the defense, we’d have no traffic problems.

So that’s it, from now on, if you see a car jamming it’s way through traffic at the Squirrel Hill Tunnel entrance, banging off of the cars in front of it, doing a spin-a-rama off of the left, rear fender then crossing the double-white line and headed down the other lane with the driver’s head down and buried into the dashboard, it’s ME!

Then when I get to the other end, I am going to pull my car to the middle, get out and walk around shaking my head side-to-side, pointing eastward and pounding my chest!  Everyone, DRIVE LIKE Le’VEON….


Hey…. we get to go against the Ravens next week… whodda thunk it YaJagoffs!!!!

Huge thanks to @JohnLucas18 (Twitter) for the header pic.  Go follow him.
