Steeler time.

Happy Halloween!

Wouldn’t Stupendous Man be a great Halloween costume?

So, let’s talk Steelers, shall we?

1.  The Steelers are losing to the Redskins in the Chunky Soup weekly matchup.  That’s bad.

We’re 8-0 for Chunky matchups, so clearly, you need to go vote to keep us undefeated, all in the name of charity via soup donations to food banks.

While you’re voting, ponder this:  Why hasn’t Chunky approached Baby Cici Donna about being its spokesfatty?

2.  You know Snoop Dogg is a Steelers fan, but now he’s managed to combine the Steelers and the Buccos of Suckitude onto one article of clothing.

I hope the suckitude of that Pirates P doesn’t ooze down and get on the awesome of the Steelers logo.

Also, nice boots lady.   Oy.  Is that part of your Super Grover costume?

3.  Why have I never seen this video of Snoop Dogg, Bill Cowher and The Duke before?

I love how Snoop is trying to do the street kind of handshake with Coach Cowher and Coach Cowher starts patting Snoop’s hand all, “Such a nice young boy. Would you like a butterscotch?”

But my favorite moment is at :16 when The Duke throws signs at the camera all, “Yo.  Fuggin’ it up in da hizzle!”

Also, that video made me miss Bill Cowher a little bit.  [tear]

4. Benny says it is very distracting seeing hot girls stretch.

They try to make their cheerleaders stretch in our tunnel before we come out of the locker room. That’s just not good,” Roethlisberger said yesterday.

“The couple of preseason games I’ve played down there, we’ve seen it,” Roethlisberger said.

And it’s a distraction?

“It can be, let’s be truthful.”

You know, I can’t write about that because I’m not a guy (says Ken Rice) and I don’t really understand how watching some hot sexy girls stretch would be enough of a distraction pre-game to affect your performance during a game.

I mean, ladies, correct me if I’m wrong, but they could have a whole host of hot guys in skimpy clothes doing stretches and we’d be all, “Nice pecs, babycakes” and that’d be it.  Game time.

We wouldn’t be affected unless those guys were also carrying rather large diamonds, some Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and a caddy of cleaning products because they’d really like to clean our houses.

And that’s not a euphemism.

You can start with the bathrooms.

    bucdaddy — yeah, maybe PG can stretch for us in those do-me boots while chokin’-a-bitch.

    that’d be hawt.

    as for ben — is it me, or does he shave his legs?

    My caption for this picture would be, “Oh hell, I thought it was only a fart! Wipers!”

    You know who I envy. Wii Steve. He just stands there and watches women stretch all day, while being a colossal douche. Then, he waits until they’ve hit his weight goals and then all of the sudden he starts with the nice guy act. It’s right out of Mystery’s playbook. You know he’s got to be getting plenty of tail.

    I’m not in the know re Bennie, but yes, a lot of jocks, in particular football types, shave their legs, easier with all the taping and liniment and other such stuff.

    As a happily married woman, I would just take the cleaning-supply toting men. Thank you.

    The Chunky Soup battle people. I know we aren’t against the packers but they do try to rival us in fan pride. Packers have almost 14,000 votes on theirs… Steelers have almost 6,000. COME ON PITTSBURGH FANS!!! We’re looking bad on there. This gives Green Bay something/anything where they can say they are better fans. Even if it is soup.

    PittGirl – make your minions vote, please.

    Put Sid and Geno stretching in front of me and I would say, “don’t tell me you don’t do windows.”
