OFTOT Week In Review...

I'm out of my damned mind. It's a proven fact. I think Google even has an algorithm to show as much. I do some of the most ridiculous shit, and I can't even explain why. It's always been this way for me. Sometimes I'll think of something so random, and it will lead me to an even more random thought, which in turn will lead me to something extremely random, yet somehow relevant to the Steelers. This is most times how I come up with post/photoshop ideas.

Take yesterday's game "preview" post. Where in the hell did I come up with an image of Jack Del Rio as a pirate, with David Garrard as his obligatory pirate parrot? Well, when I was writing the post, I was going out of my way to use as many derivations of Jacksonville and Jaguars that I could think of (mostly involving the term "jagoff"). Whilst exercising this unbridled creativity I thought to myself...Jag-u-ars...what can I put on the end to make something new and different. Of course the answer was a GH so that it became Jag-u-ARGHs, which of course means pirate speak. Obviously, right?

Yeah, I don't know either. Maybe I shouldn't have wasted so many brain cells in college. This shit is getting out of hand. Either way, hopefully you all enjoyed the past week's worth of OFTOT, even if I sucked at life in writing/commenting. Hopefully next week will be better.

Anyways, here's a rundown of this week's peaks and valleys...

1. We eked out a win against the Mudermore Ratbirds

2. We kept up with AFC North Current Events

3. Tobiathan shared his intimate feelings with us

4. I put my good health on the line in the name of good luck

5. We spitballed as to why we haven't seen hide nor hair of Limas Sweed

6. We learned that Bruce Arians knows more about FAMILY planning than GAME planning

7. I lamented having a blackberry

8. We got to know each other a little better

9. We coined a new nickname for the Jaguars...and previewed Sunday's game

Lastly, if you're on the internets this weekend, don't forget to come check out the [Unnamed] Steelers Pregame Show on Sunday afternoon, and then swing by for the OFTOT Gameday Liveblog with Tobiathan. I think Monday's liveblog was pretty awesome, and I plan on being part of Sunday's as well. Though I'm gonna rein my commentary in a bit and let Tobiathan run the show. Sometimes I get carried away...

Also, if you haven't done so already, I highly recommend you join the OFTOT, PSAMP, and Sean's Ramblings networks on Facebook. I think (hope) I speak for the three of us when I say we'd love to make your e-cquaintance(s).

Ok, and really finally - if you're looking for some new tunes to delight in, feel free to check out my Friday Morning Riffs (I send these out to a bunch of people I work with every week)...

1. Everything In Its Right Place - Radiohead
2. Scenario - A Tribe Called Quest
3. Open Your Eyes - Snow Patrol
4. Come Pick Me Up - Ryan Adams
5. Lost Desire - The Roots
Bonus Selection - What More Can I Say - Dangermouse (and Jay-Z)

Hope to see you all Sunday! I'm just gonna go have no life for the rest of the day...
