Not just a Meat Loaf interlude.

There’s a great hook in the Meat Loaf song “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” in which baseball announcer Phil Rizzuto calls what sounds like an imaginary baseball play – which, in itself, can be interpreted as the old baseball lingo for two horny people getting their freak on. Well, apparently people are getting their freak…

We got Kenny Pickett! DOUBLE YOI!!

Point of reference here. I am a longtime Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Cut my arm, it bleeds black and gold. And after the quarterback we previously had in our operations finally retired, there was a question as to what would happen with the Steelers going forward. The quarterback position is the heart and soul of any…

The Washington Commanders pay tribute to a legendary D.C. football team.

As you may be aware, the NFL’s team in Washington, D.C. has undergone a much-needed rebranding. After decades of riding on the racist nickname of “Redskins,” the team rebranded itself for the past two seasons under the generic name of “Washington Football Team.” Which, in itself, was kinda quirky and had its charm, but it…

Two specific wins, and a third game to not end in a tie. That’s all I want.

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, it all comes down to today’s contests. There’s only one path for the Black and Gold to advance into the postseason. It’s a longshot, but it can happen. (1) The Steelers have to defeat the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore. Now Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson is ruled out for the game with a…

Some things to root for in the Steelers’ regular season finale.

As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, I totally understand. Our postseason right now hangs in the balance. To make the playoffs, three things have to happen. Pittsburgh needs to defeat Baltimore in Baltimore this Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts have to lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville. And the Chargers-Raiders game on Sunday night can NOT…

Najee Harris knows what a bed is, ESPN.

Last Monday night, I watched the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. The win continued the Steelers’ four-game win streak, it pushed them closer to the top of the AFC North division, and hopefully shut up all the naysayers about the Steelers’ 2021-22 season. I mean, the quarterback should have retired…

Back heel up, it’s a pass. Back heel down, it’s a run.

This may be the last year that my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers have their long-time quarterback under center. I mean, right now the options to replace him aren’t great; between previous use of backup Mason Rudolph and signing the washout from the Washington Football Team Dwayne Haskins, it looks like our quarterback might get one more…

Hey, Najee Harris, welcome to the Steelers! Double Yoi!!

As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, last year’s season was a heartbreaker. The team starts out with an 11-0 win-loss record, and then proceeds to puke up the rest of the season – and loses a playoff game to the (scuse me, I’m going to retch) Cleveland Browns. Ugh. And then afterward, the team loses running…
