What’d I miss?!


Nothing like being out of the country for a week to make you totally lose touch with what’s going on in the Burgh.

Seriously, you guys.  I got off the plane yesterday and had to resist the urge to grab every Burgher I saw and shake them.

“What’d I miss?!  Did Troysus sign?!  Is Benny still Fug and Gross?!  Are the Pirates winning?!  Did Lukey move forward at all?!  DID SOMEBODY KILL ALL THE PIGEONS?!??”

I also had the overwhelming urge to get a Post-Gazette out of the airport machine just so I could hold it to my face and smell it.

I’m now going to go read my sixty thousand emails and feeds and I’m going to get right back with you guys later once I have answered the questions above.  I’m pretty sure I saw a pigeon flip me off this morning, so I know the answer to my last question.

And he now knows what a kick in the beak feels like.

    Welcome back PG. Go easy on Benny Boy. I’m counting on him this year.

    Bulldog – d’oh. I got him confused with every hockey player that’s ever existed. Sorry. And sorry, PG. Then again, I’m not exactly the most reliable news source.

    Troysus- Not Yet.

    Ben- Yes

    Pirates- I thought you went to Mexico on vacation, not Mars!
    Not just no, the answer is Hell No.

    Lukey- I’d say he’s shifting position as he always done
    trying to avoid confrontations. Unless you meant
    the forward movement of his airplane bringing him
    back from vaca.

    Pigeons Killed- No, they were geese.

    Rest easy now…

    Polamalu signed a five-year contract worth $33 million, making him the highest-paid Steeler and highest-paid safety in the NFL. He will receive bonuses — including signing and roster — of $15,375,000.
