1. Everybody (or, you know, 4 people) have emailed me to check out the September issue of Esquire Magazine because Lukey is in there under some kind of style section (really?!?! How much style can a dude who tucks a Steelers jersey into dress slacks actually have?) Surprisingly, PittGirl does not subscribe to Esquire, so today my mission, should I choose to accept it … and I do … is to find it on the newstands.
2. My draft is complete for the Celebrity Bloggers Fantasy Football and thankfully, those handling my draft in my physical absence did NOT play a cruel joke on me and draft the Earl of Fug and the Duke of Gross to my team, because as the coach of Ben Roethlisberger, I would spend a lot of time pacing up and down the sidelines screaming at him about just how fug and gross he is. Instead, I’m looking at Carson Palmer. I could have drafted a bunch of gorillas with physical handicaps and I would still win. It is THAT meant to be.
3. In uptown downtown on Forbes, there is a place I pass often on my bus called “The Hemorrhoid Relief Center” and on their sign is a picture of a puffy capital H with feet, and his hands stretch up high with wiggling fingers and he has a stupid smile on his face. So Steeler Nation, take heart, there IS a more ludicrous mascot than ours out there … the Hemorrhoid H. I feel better already about Steely McBeam. No I don’t. Steely still sucks. That needs to be a t-shirt.
Update: Anthony found the H.
The city could not tell the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette where six laptop computers, 10 notebook computers, four handheld computers, 10 digital projectors, 10 digital cameras, 14 printers, and one flat-panel monitor ended up. The items that could not be pinpointed cost $55,350.
Since late 2005, 10 people have held the three mayor’s office posts dedicated to the Weed and Seed program, the turnover driven by two mayoral transitions, firings and resignations.
Maybe, just maybe, Lukey needs to quit asking everyone to resign because I think everyone that gets fired is all, “Well, fine. But I’m taking my computer with me.”
