Inmate Files Law Suit on Behalf of Steelers

YJ-LawSuit

 

Only in Pittsburgh would this make news.  Well, that’s not actually true… this stupid story has made national news and, gets a spot here because it’s embarrassing to the rest of us Steelers fans.

The summary:

an inmate from a Mercer County PA jail, has filed a law suit against Roger Goodell and the NFL, asking for Temporary Emergency Injunction on the NFL Playoffs until the Kansas City/San Diego game, or simply the field goal attempt, can be replayed, thus, potentially giving the Steelers a spot in the playoffs.

Story on WPXI

Yeah….are you thinking the same obvious thing as I am on this?  ”Boy, with their Catholic background, are Art and Dan Rooney gonna be ticked when they see how bad this penmanship is.

OK, that’s not REALLY what I thought when I read this and, ya already look pretty damned silly for not using a straight edge for those underlines!

If you look on the WPXI Facebook page, quite a few people thought the same thing…”WHUT??? They get to watch NFL games in jail????????????????????????

Zachary Boso Who cares… I am more pissed that inmates get to watch TV.

Well, at least, in jail, someone’s around all day to wait for the cable guy to stop by sometime between 8am-5pm if they have a problem.

But my favorite comments were:

  • Dominic Tirabassi I would have chosen a different font. <——–HYSTERICAL ALLEY OOP

                   Nick Miller like comic sans <——–NICE TIP IN

The only thing that didn’t come up on the Facebook page was, how far this guy’s tongue was probably sticking out of the side of his mouth by the time he got to the end.  Also, unfortunately ya can’t see the bottom of this to see if he got tired of keeping everything on the same line so added legs to some of the letters to make them all the same height.

Hey guy, we love your spunk and passion but….that poor penmanship is really embarrassing the SOAPWORD outta the rest of us in Steeler Nation.  Don’t ya know the old rule of writing a crazy letter… write, don’t send it, re-read it the next day, throw it away and feel better!!!!!

But here’s what WOULD have put you to the top of the heap on the internet… if you would get ol’ Roger Go-ta-hell in that jail of yours and give him a little “Scared Straight” routine!

(You get all up in Roggee’s face, spittin’ on his cheeks and stuff)

So you think you’re the #$^%$## king of the world, huh?  So you think everyone should kiss your mutha $%^#@@ NFL ring? You da big man, Right?  Mr. Tough @#$@!!# Guy!  What?  You gonna pee your pants you little @#$@#$ sissy boy? You ain’t commissioner of @#$#@ around here, you and your nice suit and hair!

Now THAT, would have made you a reality star instead of making us all look stooooooopid, Ya Jagoff!!

 

Steelers Win! (But not without anxiety induced cheese curl eating mess!)

YJ-CheeseCurls

Being on Twitter during a Pittsburgh sports event is like watching the game with 10,000 other people as you sit in your living room… but you just don’t have to yell, “DOWN IN FRONT!” or “Shut the SOAPWORD up so I can hear the TV!”

As I side note, if my dad was on Twitter, he would tweet NOTHING during an entire Steelers game other than “GET HIM!”  and “THROW THE BALL!”

So when the Pirates were doing the playoff thing last month and lost the day game here in Pittsburgh, I received a tweet that said,

Now I’m going to eat my weight in cheese curls…so depressed

@BankerMom

We transferred tweets about Cheese Curl eating during stressful situations.  And then, when the Pirates lost the series, this tweet came across from her:

It’s ugh-ugly :-( Not sure there’s enough cheese curls in the pantry to drown my sorrows in..sigh

@BankerMom

So, yesterday, as the Steelers were putting us all through more emotional ups and downs than Charlie Sheen and 2 Kardashians on the Kennywood Park Jack Rabbit ride, it was a MAJOR cheese curl event.. they were going down in handfuls.  If there had been a cheese curl truck somewhere within 3 miles of me, I know I would have picked up it’s scent like a anxious male dog picking up the scent of a female in heat!

Then during the 4th quarter, @BankerMom, tweets this:

#CheeseCurls The Ultimate Self-loathing snack food..plus side, cheese finger stains camouflaged by #TerribleTowel

That’s exactly right… it’s why you don’t eat chocolate or bacon-and-barbecue-laced-water-chestnuts during a tense game… cheese curl finger marks are WAY easier to get off of your touchscreen than the other two as you’re feeding your stress and going through the various gyrations of  your SFTP (Steelers Fan Twitter Psychosis)…. things like:

Fire Todd Haley!! #BringBackBruceArians

Ike Taylor couldn’t catch a could. #USuck

Good call Todd Haley! #Genius

Ben, get rid of that ball earlier?? #TakeTheTrade

Ben, you’re awesome! #PittsburghLovesYou

That’s it.. I can’t watch anymore! #HadEnoughofSteelers

That interception was awesome.. (Yes I’m still watching) #HereWeGo

I hope that I can get the yellow-fingers gone before I go in public… I kind of look like a cheese curl mechanic …I don’t think my fingertips will ever come clean.

But the bottom line is, I watched the game to the end.. despite what it cost me in cheese curls and sodium/cholesterol levels.   ‘Cuz as I have said before, watching the Steelers this season is going to be like looking at 90-year-old-woman-cleavage…. you don’t want to look.. but you just HAVE TO!  And look until the very end.

So for those of you that were at the game, getting cold, getting wet and getting irritated and left the game before halftime… you missed an awesome 4-cheese-curl-bag winning finish, Ya Jagoffs!

 

 

 

Steelers Lose To Raiders Rant

YJ-PrimantisDraped

 

Ok… love the Steelers but reality is setting in on the 2013-14 season.  At some point, it might be prudent for the malls to start adding staff on Sunday afternoons.  Not that we’re all turning our backs on the Steelers, but the reduced importance of the current season and the pain of watching Ben get sacked 5-6 times per game makes my OWN back and knees hurt!  I think I took 8 Alieve during the first half of the game and used 3 bottles of Absorbine Junior the second half.

Even more compounding, yesterday was the day I came back from Hawaii.. trading in 86 degree weather for the hometown chill.  While glad to be home and glad to see the welcoming sunshine….I’m pa-riiiiitt-teee sure that trading in Hawaii for fall weather on the SAME DAY that one realizes that the Steelers are gonna fall VERY short this year, ranks somewhere high on that Holmes and Rahe Stress Level Scale…(You know.. that one that gives you points for Death of a Spouse, Divorce, Job Termination, Buying a House...)

But… the Steelers are ours and we can’t quite call them Jags…

So, I have to deflect this stress somewhere…I’m now biting my tongue….and you’re gonna have to wait until TOMORROW’S BLOG to see who is catching the full brunt of my  Holmes and Rahe anger…(HINT: USAirways)

Be sure to check back here tomorrow.. Ya Jag… nope… not gonna do it.. gonna hold that thought so that I don’t soften up before tomorrow.
