All my rowdy friends...

Its been over a year since I wrote anything on the blog so forgive me...but I needed a place to write about how the NFL has set up the Steelers to lose in Denver this weekend.

Hold your pants on.

I'm not saying they WILL lose...just that this is the perfect storm for the league to make a point and a whole lot of money.

Just thinking about it makes me kind of sick.

Here we have an aggressive, pursuing defense that hits hard...and has already had players fined and suspended for hitting a QB (who was running out of the pocket) vs a team with a QB who LOVES to run.

What happens if the defense isn't as aggressive?  What if they pull up instead of going for the hit on one of those read options Tebow likes to run?

I can almost guarantee there will be two or more roughing the QB or personal foul penalties against the Steelers in this game.  And that could extend drives and lead to scores.  Or at least swing the field position in a game where you have a gimpy QB and having a short field would be very beneficial.

Now even if you think (as many people do) that a few of the fines James Harrison has received are for bogus hits the fact remains that one questionable call (like the one against London Fletcher on Tom Brady a couple weeks ago) could not only affect the game, but affect Harrison playing the following week (assuming a win in Denver).

This could also go the other way and show how certain QB's *cough*AaronRodgers*cough* get better treatment from the refs than other ones and NOTHING gets called.

You never know with an NFL ref.  Each crew seems to understand the rules differently.

The Steelers SHOULD win.  They are a veteran defense and they should stay in their lanes and keep Tebow boxed in where he will be forced to *throw* the ball.  If that's what you call it.

But if the unthinkable happens just remember who to thank.

School Days

Here's the Friday Five!

Yes, I know its Saturday night...I was busy! Heck I haven't even had time to decide what I'm going to start calling the blog now that I've already turned 40!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I had heard that it was homecoming week at WVU this weekend and it got me thinking about songs that are associated with the local sports teams.



West Virginia, for example, has adopted this song from John Denver as their theme over the years.


Much closer to home The University of Pittsburgh also had their homecoming this weekend. I had to reach out to an old friend and ask if there was a song they used to get the fans up or something they called their own....and he came through for me!
(And kudos to the guy who did that video!)


Once you get to the pro teams its a lot easier!


Starting with the Pirates...yes they are pros...its hard to believe its been 30 years since Pittsburgh won a World Series. OK, not that hard to believe. But back then there was a real family feel between the team and the city.


(By the way...best use of this song since 1979? Right here!)

Onward and upward and I'm not sure the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, your Pittsburgh Penguins, still use this song as Gary Glitter ran into a little bit of trouble in the recent past.


And of course there is the six-time and current Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers with their 4th quarter anthem!


So there you have it! The Friday Five!

Enjoy and if you have any suggestions for a future list drop me a line or leave a comment!

Sixteen Candles...

Here is your Friday Five...five videos with a particular theme!

I started this list a while back after hearing a song that struck me as odd.

Here are (at least) five songs about jailbait.

I just can't imagine where musicians get such a bad rap!

These were just the songs that I knew of off the top of my head...a quick search came up with many, MANY more!

Obviously these are in no certain order.

Is it ironic that a group calling themselves the Police had a huge hit about a teacher lusting for his student?



Nice try Winger, but 17 is still 17. Even if she above the age of consent...we know what you mean!



The 60's were a simpler time of love and peace and chasing young chicks in mini-skirts.



Even the Beatles were not above interest in a younger girl.



And you would think the groups would keep from ANNOUNCING the age of the girl they would be arrested for stalking!



And a bonus track...just to prove the members of the Beatles never changed. (Even if it mean remaking a jailbait song!)


So there you have it. Although there were a few songs about women chasing underage guys these seemed a little, well, creepier!

Happy Friday!

Dead or Alive

A couple weeks ago I said I was going to start a Friday night music blog.

Naturally I've been busy the past couple weeks and didn't do it...so here's the Saturday morning version!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Jim Morrison, lead singer of the doors allegedly died while in Paris on July 3, 1971. I say allegedly because there are those who still believe he faked his own death.

In fact you can see a picture of his "ghost" here.





More recently, and you may have missed this, Michael Jackson died.

And yes, there are those who say he faked his death.



Here's an oldie but a goodie.

I actually found people who think that Glenn Miller faked his death while performing during WW II! Presumably because his body was never recovered...



Then there was Kurt Cobain. Who supposedly took his own life because of the strain on him being successful. Isn't it wonderful that people can waste valuable band width with their conspiracy websites?



Naturally we have Elvis Aaron Presley. There are enough conspiracy theories about his death to write a book...or several of them.



Clearly he was in a good state of mind...lol.

That's it for this week!

Enjoy your weekend!
