Lukey’s got a plan

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s recently unveiled one-phase snow removal plan leaves a lot to be desired.

I hope someone remembered to give him the City’s three-hour “Intro to Safe and Effective Snow Shoveling” before sending him out there to shovel the Greenfield church of the family of Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy.

Also, do you know that you can still spend twenty bucks on a shirt to commemorate the Steelers playing in Super Bowl XLV? Yes, tons of these shirts in various styles and colors were for sale at my local Sam’s Club on Saturday:

WOO! Remember that time we played like poop and everyone puked beer into their Terrible Towels?! COMMEMORATE THAT SHIT.

My husband, one of the biggest Steelers fans I know, saw the shirt display and was all, “Who would buy THAT?!”

And I said, “Say focus for me.”

And he said, “FOCK YOUS.”

I think he meant it.

I have no idea why any Burghers would now want to commemorate such a painful loss, but I bet it’s the same kind of people still driving around with Kerry/Edwards bumper stickers.

    I saw some article during Super Bowl week claiming that the Cowboys are the favorite NFL team in Mexico. I was always under the impression that Mexico is wild for the Steelers. I have no idea why that would be but…

    Is it true?

    This is Exhibit A regarding why I never buy Conference Championship or pre-Super Bowl swag.

    If they lose, I never want to see the stuff ever again. And if they win, I want the SB Champions gear.

    If that photo of Lukey was taken on my street (which still is covered with snow), I’d almost be in favor of the Steelers losing the Super Bowl.

    I too wear pressed khakis and dress shoes when I shovel.

    I also like the person in the background inspecting the sidewalk to see if he did a good job. Either that, or he’s getting ready to puke.

    He’s looking under the ice for bodies of people who tried walking to Josie Dimon’s ambulance.

    My husband and I were in Mexico over Christmas and one day I was wearing my Steelers earrings. Our tour guide saw them and said she loved the Steelers. Later that day I went into a store and I couldn’t figure out why the guy behind the register was like Go Steelers then I remembered the earrings. Only two people but I didn’t think anyone would even notice the earrings let alone comment.
