Good news, Steeler fans!

This fluffernutter-loving, jiggling, wiggling ball of nose-tackling blubber is ours for the next three years thanks to a deal he’ll sign with the Steelers.

Apparently by coming to terms with Casey Cabbage Patch Baby Cici Donna Hampton, the Steelers do not need to place the franchise tag on him, which we would talk about here if I had a freaking clue what that means.  But I don’t.  I never have.  Even when I wiki it and even when people try to explain this “franchise tag” bullshit to me, I still couldn’t explain it to you without using fake words like “transinformplementational.”

It’s like my brain rejects this information.  It absorbs information about snowboard cross rules, and how to make the perfect meatloaf, and even the mating habits of dinosaurs, but as soon as my brain hears “franchise tag,” it goes all, “LALALALALA- I CAN’T HEAR YOU!”

That said, the Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers will probably use their franchise tag on Jeff Reed, or that perhaps they’ll use their “transition” tag on him.  And now my brain is all, “THERE’S A TRANSITION TAG, TOO?!?!”

Forget the stuff I don’t understand.  There are two important simple things you need to know:

1.  We’re going to have Casey Hampton and Jeff Reed around as blog fodder for at least another year.

2.  Casey Hampton is fat; these guys are not.

Vintage Daniel Sepulveda and Tyler Grisham in their college days.

Where’s the “abpecbiceptasticnomnomizational” tag?

    Oh, dear God. That’s just not cool. I got all excited about Grisham and you throw that up first? That’s just wrong.

    Oops, I agree on the Franchise tag thingie. And yesterday when I heard about the words “transition tag”; I just wept.

    I’d rather read this ( even w/ the revolting photo of Hampton ) than that B/S about those loser Pirates.

    Allison, I’m with you. I saw the tweet about a shirtless Tyler Grisham and I RAN over here only to have the first thing I see be the deep dark depths of CCPBCDH’s belly button.
    Thank goodness Ginny ended it on a much more pleasing note.

    why do i have a feeling that if the Steelers ever did a nekkid calendar, casey would be all “i’ll do it!!”

    Annnnddddd…the estrogen cloud grows both in diameter and in density. As for Ginny starting off with Casey and finishing the way she did…how many of you eat dessert first? Which taste would you rather have lingering? Seriously, folks…the lady knows how to put the pics together.

    Transition tag means if someone throws obscene amounts of money at Skippy, the Stillers can pat him on the butt and wish him well. Franchise tag means the Stillers are the ones who must throw obscene amounts of money at him.

    No need to thank me.

    Tyler’s looking a little pixelated for some reason.

    Daniel is looking, uh. *blink*


    I think surly was the word I was looking for when my hormones overrode my brain.

    “Abpecbiceptasticnomnomizational” will definitely be incorporated into my vocabulary! Somehow.

    “Franchise tag” is God’s revenge on people who mock the infield fly rule as being impenetrable.

    From the unflattering bevy of female-reader comments regarding Casey doesn’t this now mean it’s OK again to describe FAT chicks like Oprah and Kirstie Allie as FAT?? as opposed to the PC “big” girls??

    I’m just sayin’….

    Funny how the fat guys make the big money and are the stars of the team while the pretty boys with the abs are barely on the team and contribute very little…. other than giving women wet panties.

    Daniel is perfection and tyler is another much needed male beefcake for the Steeler Nation! Maybe if all football players looked like the our yummy Tyler & Daniel the NFL would be a much better place!

    Tyler is my nephew and he is darling. He is just as kind a person as he is goodlooking. He is a great role model for our children and his cousins. WE love him!!!!!
