Good morning, Burghers.


And just like that I’ve made your morning, ladies (and a few of you gents).

And to top it off, you’ve got a picture for this year’s Christmas card.

You’re so welcome

(h/t to Tommy G in Texas by way of reader Susan in the Burgh)

    Still A. Fan said “i thought the story was going to read “TROY SIGNS EXTENSION!”

    And I thought it was going to read “Troy wears extensions.”

    I’ll be at Stiller HQ all weekend. If Troy’s hanging around, I’ll tell him that Pittgirl said “hey.” I mention this not to brag about my part-time Stiller PR gig, but to…oh, hell, I mention this purely to brag about my part-time Stiller PR gig. Although the truth is that I’m looking forward more to the phenomenal buffet than I am to the chance to mingle with Stillers.

    Thanks, PG – between looking at Glorious Troy and worrying about whether Anthony is moving, I’m not gonna get any work done today!

    Wow!!! I just found you Pittgirl and you keep me coming back. I think you are hilarious. Great pic of Troy. Kind of shocking at first. I don’t know if you’ve seen this but I thought maybe you would like it.

    Keep ’em coming.

    thanks for centering it black n looks even better here! than at s.i. a life size poster would rock!

    im glad you posted it and enjoyed it.

    it was either this pic or chris gardocki bench pressing 30 pounds….. i cant wait for the draft this week!

    Go Steelers!

    I cannot take credit for the framing, etc. That was all Susan’s doing.

    wow! then i should let her know since i got her email address. i prinited it out in black and white yesterday and put it in my room next to my autographed nate washington pic. i wish i had a color printer and that extra framing so it could blow that washington pic away.

    is it me or does troy sort of look like the singer for slayer mr tom arraya on steroids but without the blood or deep screaming voice? i guess as mentioned before he could pass for slash and maybe gardocki could play axl rose. i still say he intercepted peyton in that playoff game and were still the champs…since the steelers beat the colts..jk in that case that would make the patsies the champs…Go Steelers!
