1.  Sometimes the weather gods look down on PittGirl and say, “You’ve had enough of 30 degree temperature swings, wind that sucks the hot out of your curly hair, and you’re a pretty hilarious bitch who deserves to wear her open-toed shoes.  Here’s a little gift for you.”:

Baseball-game going weather for sure.   On behalf of the Burgh, THANK YOU weather gods.

2.  The Steelers didn’t just select a punter in the fourth round of the draft, they selected a BADASS punter.  (h/t to reader parking chair, too)

3.   Am I the only one that thinks the old Steelers mascot, the Terrible Fan looks like a giant penis?  A giant fur coat-wearing penis?  Just me?  Okay.

4.   Blake?  Rocks.  That is all.

5.  For all the boys feeling slighted by my Troysus beefcake post (ladies, let’s just take a moment to remember that post.  Ahhhh.  That was a good morning, wasn’t it?) … here ya go.  You’re welcome.  This also marks the first time I’ve ever seen the Trib use the words “crotchless” and “edible panties”.  Awesome.  TOTES safe for work.

    I don’t watch American Idol, but I’d find someone who has that gumby hair thing going a bit difficult to take seriously regardless of how well he sings.

    The Post Gazette had an article on the new punter: http://www.postgazette.com/pg/07122/782646-66.stm. He was a former linebacker, and has a chiseled physique. I think the Yinzer ladies are going to like this guy, possible “Hot Burgher” material.

    The original “mascot” was the brainchild of Bob Garritano, whose day job was assistant principal at my alma mater, East Allegheny High School.

    Since you’re dying to wear those open toe shoes, what color polish does PittGirl do her toes in?

    It does look like a wang…a wang with a Terrible Condom on his head to avoid getting a Terrible Rash.
