What I’m Really Thinking: Flaking Out Edition

You guys, there won’t be a What They’re Really Thinking post for this past Sunday’s game.

This is only the second one I’ve missed since I started writing them, not counting of course that little nine month hiatus I took that one time.

I promise WTRT will be back for the Jets game.

    I’m sad, but understand completely. Sending you a few images via Twitter that I just captioned specifically for you!

    :(. Oooookkkkkkk. lol. Actually, I have a suggestion – as penance do one for the Pens – Cryers games tonight!!! Not that I’m sure you don’t have 1 million other things that need done. You do such a great job with WTRT it was just an idea ;)

    Queing up the clip of Cameron in the back seat of the Ferarri. (In “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” for the uninitiated.)

    Understand completely. Every December, I develop an eye twitch from all the stress, and I’m not even dealing with a family-restaurant restoration project!

    Awwww… How about a mini WTRT? I can’t believe you’d bypass a two interception Troyus game that included his Superman flying into the endzone TD.

    Fair enough. Given your last couple of weeks, you’re probably feeling like you’re James Harrison and Life is Roger Goodell.

    One thing, though. Was I the only one who looked at the bearded Carson Palmer and saw Mitchell from Modern Family?

    How about we just say “Troysus Saves” and leave it at that.

    stop…close eyes…deep breath…repeat as necessary. Don’t flake out too much. we don’t need you having an “Event”. :)

    That is completely unacceptable young lady. You march yourself in front of that computer and start typing funny comments onto pictures of Steelers and Bengals players now! And that’s an order Missy!!! ;-)

    I’ll just Yinz Luv da Stillers over and over again to make up for it.

    I will never, ever forgive you for this. NEVER. OK, that might be an overstatement. More accurately, I look forward to the next installment. :)

    Awww. Understandable tho what with everything going on.
    Hope everything is ok and looking forward to the next one!

    WWTRT? The same thing every team thinks when they see Troy; “Oh, shit!”

    Pretty tough crowd today, no? See what happens when you raise expectations? Come back soon. Meanwhile, GO Pens!

    The ad banner at the top of the PG homepage is for Subaru’s “Share the Love event.”

    How hard is it to find 10 good pictures of Troysus and write “mmmmmm” and “awesome” and “nom nom nom” on all of them? ;)

    In all seriousness, hope everything is OK and things get back to normal soon.

    I’m looking at that photo of LaMarr Woodley that Amy tweeted and I now have “…everybody was kung fu fighting…” running through my head.

    I also thought the sideline discussions between Carson Palmer and T.O. would be entertaining.

    Bummed, but totally got you on this.
    I’m with Sue and thing that “Troysus saves” pretty much covers it.

    Feel better soon!

    It’s been an empty week of mirthless misery.

    Totally understandable. But please remember that you promised it would be back for the Jets game! We love you and WTRT!
