Best thing I heard all weekend

A report on Ken Whisenhunt’s departure, paraphrased, because I was laughing too hard to remember the exact words:

Female news reporter on WTAE: We went to Ken Whisenhunt’s home this evening to find it locked tight and with congratulatory balloons lying deflated near the mailbox, perhaps from the weather, perhaps from the tears of Steelers fans.

Who writes this stuff?

Actually, what I mean to say is, who writes this shit?

    Your paraphrasing is pretty much spot on. I heard the same thing. Local news or a Hallmark card? Still a joke!

    i saw this too and hung my head in shame for city. why cant we get a real local newscast and not ones that continually jerk off on useless things like ‘coach watch’. is it just me? deflated balloons at former coach’s house is not news worthy. its not like this is some impromptu memorial that springs up after (true) disasters. this is tabloid. borderline stalking. but not surprising.

    Did the reporter expect the front door to be unlocked? How stupid! Leave the man alone. There is no reason to have the man’s house under constant surviellance.

    I’m not well versed in blog comments and am just starting to explore seeking links. Might we have a go at it?

    Should you have an opportunity to check out my blog, I’m sure starting from the beginning will leave no doubt about the “Pittsburgherness” :-)
