What They’re Really Thinking: Training Camp Edition

If training camp shenanigans are any indication of future performance, I’m a little nervous for Steelers football this year.

We’ve got Troysus practicing soccer.

James Harrison at quarterback:

And Benny on the chorus line:

Not only that, Casey Hampton can think of nothing but food:


Hines is so stressed from his legal troubles he’s completely constipated and having trouble shitting his usual sunshine.

Rashard is stomping around demanding his version of respect.

And when he’s not playing quarterback, James Harrison is just looking for people he can cool down:

Even Mr. Burns is disgusted:

Maybe you’re not worried about this season yet like I am, but one thing we can all agree on is that on the eighth day, God created Under Armour:

    I think you missed the obvious with the next to last picture, “Hey you damned kids! Get off my lawn!” Me thinks he has those suspenders notched a couple of inches too high… OK, maybe about 8 inches too high.

    Mr. Rooney should have asked for his midsection back during the last negotiations.

    Mr. Rooney looks a bit more like Steve Urkel with that stance — sans the flood pants.

    This makes me so happy! Thank you! I will be in Pittsburgh tomorrow with my friend and our two sons. Buccos tomorrow, training camp Saturday. We’re planning on trying Las Velas, so if you see two women babbling about Troysus with two annoyed-looking boys in tow, that’s probably us!

    I extolled the virtues of UnderArmour after my first glimpse of Mr. Sepulveda. Nom nom nom.

    And after being in attendance at PNC Park for tonight’s disappointing loss, I say to alla yinz: “Git aht yer Stillers gear. This dream is over”.

    Why Fluffernutters in the armpits when he can fit a nine-course dinner in his navel?

    So glad you are back! Man, Mr. Rooney needs to just retire already. The peeing sequence was hilarious.
