I watched the Steelers lose and get bad news that might mean they are going to continue to lose. I watched the Pirates lose the 3rd of three games that, if they were going to lose any, these would be the 3 worst ones to lose. But then it got worse!!!
I received a text from my buddy Dan with news even WORSE than the Steelers’ future…. I had missed Grandparents Day!!! Oh God! The pressure!!!
I can’t tell which one is worse… the pressure that the Pirates seems stuck.. the pressure that we are really gonna struggle through Steelers season OR, do I call my kids’ grandparents and tell them that I’m sorry I missed Grandparents Day or, like me, do they have NO CLUE that it was Grandprents Day and, therefore, calling them would make them aware and…. since they are already ticked off about the Pirates and Steelers losing, they give me the “Yeah…. thought we might see the kids today… even for a little bit. We don’t get to see them too often anymore!“
URGH… the pressure!!!
So what are YOU today..”Haley Haters” “Hurdle Haters” and “Hallmark Haters” (for making up these phony Greeting Card holidays that guilt people into buying there stuff)?
The Steelers may have to take a page from the Pirates fans over the past few years….
And since I refuse to get on Haley or Hurdle…cuz they know more about what they’re doing than I know about what they’re doing, I’m getting out of this by blaming Hallmark.
Hey Hallmark, we call your “Grandparents Day” and raise you to a “City of Pittsburgh is Closed Because The Pirates and Steelers Lost In Horribly Sick and Sad Fashion Despite Me Wearing My Steelers/Pirates Game-Day Party Jersey To Church Day!” And, since my kids’ grandparents don’t understand the concept of photo shop, I’m gonna show them the photo above and tell them that I missed seeing them on “Grandparents Day” because they closed the City. Put a gold, circular sticker on THAT, Ya Jagoffs!!
Duquesne University Wecht Institute is planning an academic panel about the Kennedy assassination as it’s 50 year anniversary comes around this October. Because Geraldo was the first to air the Zapruder film, he had been invited to moderate the event.
But then, like many other self-important males who drink too much and own a smart phone, Geraldo tweeted a “selfie” pic of himself and then, like all of those who second guess themselves after being drunk with a smart phone in theirhands, apologized for the tweeted photo. Well, the folks at Duquesne University have chosen to un-invite Geraldo from the October event because of his tweeted pic. And, did Geraldo say to himself, “Ahhh .. yeah.. that WAS dumb of me to do what I did. I probably should just accept the fact that some people think I am scum since I gave them ammunition to think as such.”
Nope.. he fights back on Twitter with:
Just heard Duquesne Univ cancelled my appearance at JFK assassination panel because of ‘selfie’. Fact I first aired Zapruder film less impt.
Duquesne’s cancellation of my JFK panel appearance is pretentious censorship Do students agree with administration? Am I banned for life?
Yes Geraldo.. the fact that you were a talking head when the Zapruder film was aired … (not that you shot it or discovered it) IS less important!! The fact that YOU think that YOU are more important, or even relevant in 2013, is the kind of thinking that led you to taking the “Selfie” pic in the FIRST place!!! And good try and trying to get the students engaged ins something.. again.. trying to make yourself relevant!
And by the way, your “selfie” pic seems to have a bit of a different look and hair color from your Twitter profile pic:
A little wishful thinking?
Hey Geraldo, you should thank Duquesne University for helping to make you relevant! That’s what you REALLY want… to be talked about.. relevant when the facts are, you haven’t been relevant since the whole swing-and-a-miss BS on the Al Capone vault stuff! Shut up and go back to your male-dancing gig at nursing homes, Ya Jagoff!!!
