OFTOT Week 6 In Review...

I'm not gonna lie to you, it's been a long week. Things around here were pretty quiet for the most part. Either you guys are all taking the week off from OFTOT, as you should, OR I'm just getting worse as the weeks go on. Smart money's on the latter, but I'm hoping it's just the former.

Anyhow, I did my thing despite the lack of conversation. I even kind of enjoyed being able to open this place up to some other topics besides just the Steelers (which clearly will always be the main focus). Sometimes you gotta just scratch that creative itch, if you know what I mean. A lot of scratching around here this week.

Not the kind of scratch I really need, but what can you do? I blame the stock market, personally. I mean, I don't own stock, I've never bothered to set up my 401k, and I don't own anything significant except a spacious and stylish 1997 Toyota Camry Sedan of Death and Destruction. But I figure somehow the financial services industry has screwed me. At least in the "stealing all the hot chicks" department.

If you've never lived here, or visited, New York is the capital of the universe for hot chicks who wanna marry a dude with money and do nothing for the rest of their lives. A noble goal, indeed. I'm trying to do the same, but in reverse. You know, find a chick with some coin and spend the majority of my days commenting on Deadspin, watching the Tyra Banks show and drinking strawberry lemonade.

So far things have been slow-going. But I'm still hopeful that someday, some girl's gonna come along and give me access to her enormous wealth, such that I can be the waste of life I really am at heart (and on this blog).

Until then, I'll just recap this week's worth of OFTOT for you all.

Let's see, this week, we...

1. Continued destroying your brain cells with [Unnamed] Steelers Pregame Show #5...

2. Basked in the glory of victory getting to the bye week alive...

3. Probed Tobiathan's subconscious for reflections on Sunday's game...

4. Gave the rest of the division shit...

5. ...I've STILL worn so many better hats than that hat...

6. Learned a whole bunch of stuff that is of no consequence to anyone...

7. Kept up with the latest on Jeff Reed's groin...

8. Learned of new Plax idiocy...

9. Attempted to discuss the dominance of LaMarr Woodley...

10. Unleashed some unseen idiocy video from the vault

11. Attempted to discuss officiating during Steelers games...

12. Met some new friends and discussed ways to fix this broken economy...

And here's today's Friday Morning Riffs for those of you who enjoy a little auditory stimulation on a Friday...

1. So Much for The Afterglow - Everclear
2. Fu-Gee-La - Fugees
3. Roadtrippin' - Red Hot Chili Peppers
4. Step Into A World - KRS One
5. Jailhouse - Sublime

And the obligatory bonus selection...
You Got Me (Live) - The Roots [featuring Jill Scott]

Other than that, have a great bye weekend, folks! We just might have a bye week edition of [Unnamed] Steelers Pregame Show on Sunday, complete with a Domski cameo. So be sure to check back Sunday afternoon for that. For now, I'm just gonna go get mentally prepared for battling hipsters in Williamsburg. I better remember to bring some eye makeup remover...you know how garlic wards off Vampires? Well, eye makeup remover wards off severely emo hipsters.

Take 'er easy, dudes and dudettes!

eeewwwwww- tapeworm?!? said...

I'll take 'er any way i can get 'er...

Anyway- i wouldn't worry too much about the cricket-chirpping silence 'round here. Likely everybody's just enjoying a bye-week. I'm sure it'll pick up soon enough.

On a wholly unrelated note: "House M.D." just showed a tapeworm being removed: remind me to overcook the laketrout. Ick. Effing ick. And eek.
