Have You Ever Been to Philadelphia?

As the Steelers move from Cleveland to Philadelphia and continue their world tour of world-class shithole cities -- what's next, Mogadishu? -- Mike & Mike (Greenberg & Golic) are in Philthydelphia, too, broadcasting their inane ESPN talk show. We should all have jobs like that. No, on second thought ...

Anyway, Joey Porter's Pit Bulls are feeling less optimistic about the game on Sunday than we were earlier in the week. If Big Ben were fully healthy, we'd feel better. On the other hand, Big Ben is kinda like Jethro Bodean of The Beverly Hillbillies. Nothing seems to faze him. Just give him a big plate of ham-hocks, pig's feet and grits, and he'll be fine.

Now, talking ourselves back into optimism -- and don't you just love how we (I) constantly use the "editorial we"? We (I) have identity issues. Sometimes, I (we) feel like all the characters in The Wizard of Oz, all at once -- anyway, what we (I) -- Joey Porter's Pit Bulls -- have a hunching suspicion about this game, on the side of optimism, is that Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is due to immolate, self-destruct. He's just due. Something's going to happen. Maybe he'll get a bad cheese-steak on Saturday night. Maybe MTV will re-run his feature on Cribs. Something.

Something will set him off. Get him off his game.

Maybe James Harrison. Silverback. Yeah, that could work.

The photo, by the way, is of an Eagles fan. At least he got something right.

And, finally, if you find Mormons weird, bizarre and/or annoying, this classic from Big Daddy Drew at Kissing Suzy Kolber.

thankyouthankyouthankyou That was such a pleasant surprise. I need to start linking to my favorite steeler bloggies more often, because I'm quite proud of my blogroll.

Man, let me tell you a little story about some Mormon shadiness.

My company built this whole web site for this Mormon company, yet the company refused to pay for it. Then, a week or two later, we noticed that the site we had designed and programmed for them was up, live on the internets. And after examining the code, we confirmed that it was the exact same code from the staging site we had set up for them. Complete with comments from our developers and everything. But even when our legal department intervened they denied any wrongdoing.

Eventually it all worked out and we got paid. But shit, man. Dem Mo'mons 'er some shifty little buggers.

Mormons, dude. Like Nihilists on a moral high horse.

Oh yeah, and thanks for the link and the love! As always.
