We’re joking around on Twitter because I referred to Munhall’s Chief Rodgers as “strapping” but I can’t help it. That’s the word that comes to mind when I see a picture of him.

Tall. Tough. Strapping. Like the guy on the Brawny towels.

Either way, I totally have an I’m-happily-married crush on Chief Rodgers and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

You can now go to see a slideshow of my experience doing drills with the company, complete with pictures of every drop of makeup melted off my face. It’s super sexy. And be sure to read the photo captions.

Also, you can read the Princess Bride reference that ended up hitting the cutting room floor.

Go on now. I’ll be here when you get back.

    Since no one has called it yet, I’m doing it. Self- united husband. Now back away from the computer screens and wipe off the drool.

    If I were into that cougar thing, this man would definitely get my purr purring. In fact, my purr is purring. What a hunk.

    For some reason, in my mind, “strapping” always has to be followed by “young lad”. It works, I guess. I may have seen one or two girls who could be described as “strapping”, but I would never say so to their faces.
