Steely McWalkingPSA...


Ok, I think things have gotten a little out of hand in the Burgh at this point. Must be something in the water...err...make that the whiskey...

What, you don't know?

One of the dudes who portrays Bill Cowher Steely McBeam was apparently arrested back in January and charged with Driving Under the Influence. Why we're just hearing about it now is a mystery...

Nevertheless, his BAC was somewhere between .166 (quoth the Trib) and .173 (says the PG), which if my memory serves me correctly is about twice the legal limit and a few hundredths of a point from officially being blacked out...or as they call it on the South Side - Jeff Reeded.

As for the net result - you'll be happy to know that since he wasn't voted to the Pro Bowl, he has "been relieved" of his "duties." No word yet on whether he'll be relieved of giving Larry Zierling handjobs at halftime...I'll keep you posted though.

Any thoughts on this? Where do we even begin?

I'll bet it was fun in the holding cell, with Steely McBeam leading all the guys in a chant of, "Here we go Steelers, here we go!"

Wouldn't YOU drink all the time if you were Steely McBeam?

Ugh, I hope they don't replace him...just let him die, please...

JPPB ~ I think he was actually overheard chanting - "Here we go syphilis, here we go!"

Christy ~ Unfortunately, it apparently takes two men to do the job of Steely McBeam. So alas, the character will not die with this one.

Domski ~ Don't let your love for dudes with large rods cloud your judgment.

Marc ~ I know what I'm gonna be next Halloween...
