I still have no idea why the Steelers insist on breaking out those horrid, striped throwback uniforms. I have yet to meet anyone who says, Man, those really look good!

A lady friend of mine made the astute observation that they look like bumblebees wearing Spanx.

I love it when NFL coaches get caught swearing by the cameras. I especially love it when the network takes the time to make a slo-mo replay of it, like they did with Jim Harbaugh today at the end of the Saints game.

It is likely that someone in management told the team they would have to wear them every week until they started playing better. I guess the threat worked.

In partnership with the NFL, all Allegheny County McDonald's franchises are including collectable "Pittsburglar" action figures in Happy Meals from now to the end of the month.

I, for one, love them. You people (yeah, I said *you people*) just don't appreciate artful gauche.

Should have used "Yinz."

Artful Gauche was the minority owner of the Steelers for a couple of years in the '40s.

It was also the name of a punk rock band in the late '70s. (Disclaimer: no it wasn't.)

I thought he was just yelling for more Fudge.

I agree, the team looks like bumblebees. What gets me is the beige pants.

Someone finally made a GIF of it.

And yes, that's exactly the speed it was shown on live TV, too.

Link posted since I are 2 stupid to figure out how to embed IMGs/GIFs.

All I can think when I watch that gif is "WHEEEEEE!"

All I can think of is that he's probably licensed to operate a motor vehicle.

This is why Ralph Wilson lives in Detroit.
