AFC North Headline Of The Day...

The good people of Buffalo, NY need to get out more.



If TO came to my hood, I'd be all like, "Yo son, you betta check yo bullshit at tha do' an rekignize!"

[Don't worry, I'm embarrassed for MYSELF right now]

I definitely wouldn't be standing there, mouth agape, like Megan Fox just stepped off the plane.

But I'd be lying to you if I told you I knew that was what happened...because I didn't even bother to read the story. I just saw an opportunity and seized on it.

That's how I do's it, Larry.

Anyways, I guess Marshawn Lynch wasn't doing his job. He wasn't enough of a distraction for the Bills to let TO go unnoticed. Better tender your resignation for that one, Marshawn. Because there's a new Sherrif in town.

The question that's got everyone all aflutter this morning is - Does this make sense for the Bills?

The question I have is - How does this NOT make sense for the Bills?

Look, I hate TO, you hate TO. But that doesn't mean he couldn't help the Bills.

The Bills have been a perrenial AFC East doormat. $6.5 million for one year is not that big of a deal given the potential value TO could bring. I've read that people doubt Trent Edwards. Well, I can't really say anything about Trent Edwards because I don't really know enough about him.

Bottom line - If something wasn't done, the Bills could have (and still might) very well become the NFL's first Canadian franchise.

So at least they're trying, I guess.

But what I really wanna know from TO is - How do the Ravens look now, you douchebag? Thanks for being a prima donna about everything. Having you in the AFC North would've sucked. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, tune yourself in to 2004.

So at this point, there's only one more thing that can be said about this...

I'm curious - since when did it become funny to use Hitler in your jokes?

No, seriously. When did it become funny to use Hitler in your jokes? Because if there was some kind of announcement, I guess I must have missed it.

The amazing part about that video is not that Hitler's the star, though. It's that there's almost four minutes of it.

Overkill? Perhaps, just a bit.

Clearly there is absolutely no proper transition I can make here. So you're just going to have to move on to the links now...

What you have to look forward to at a Pens practice - almost getting a puck to the gourd [PSaMP]

Joey Galloway visiting the Steelers? Sadly, my only question is - Can he pass a physical? [Post-Gazette]

Anthony Smith is now someone else's problem. The Green Bay Packers, in fact [Press-Gazette]

Ed Bouchette. Still hating on the Redskins one week later - "By now, anyone over the age of 25 should know how the Steelers operate...They are as predictable as the Redskins missing the playoffs." I love it [Post-Gazette]

So does The Big Lead [The Big Lead]

In the headline says it all department - "Steelers Won't Overpay for Harrison" [Beaver County Times]

The Steelers sign Conan O'Brien [Mondesi's House]

Looks like LaMarr Woodley will be throwing out the first pitch at the Altoona Curve's home opener [Altoona Mirror]

Steelers banners are apparently the new black [Post-Gazette]

Igor Olshansky. Now a Dallas Cowboy. I guess Dallas isn't messing around with it's Defense this season. Good for them [Associated Press]

After 800 years in the NHL, Gary Roberts finally hangs the skates up. Good career, dude. You will be missed. /virtual man-pat on the ass [The Pensblog]

More on the inimitable Gary Roberts' retirement [PSaMP]

It's like people have always said - When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you [Coach] good? Whatever, Dan Bylsma dresses for success [Getting Nifty in the Clutch]

If Capitals fans spent as much time cheering on their team as they do talking shit on Sid, maybe I could call them real fans. Seems like we've got a long way to go on that one, though [Puck Daddy]

Too bad all the douchebaggery in the world couldn't stop Sid [ESPN]

Some things just shouldn't be left up to technology [Good Experience]

Carnegie Mellon student being sued by the RIAA [Recording Industry vs. The People]

Facebook. It's not just for stalking anymore [Trib]

And speaking of Facebook being your enemy and not your friend... [HHR]

Apparel of the day on Saturday = a Ron Francis Whalers jersey...

I didn't even know any of these existed anymore.

And finally, I feel like I should say something right now. I like to cast stones around here and everything, but at the end of the day, I'm the one who walks around his apartment at night wearing man-slippers.

What I'm trying to say is - Some bloggers out there like to pretend like they know something you don't.

Other bloggers know that at some point, each one of us will be a hypocrite. Possibly some 8000 points, even.

And then there are bloggers who know that they write a blog.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to keep things in perspective.

That is all at this time.

Obligatory Footer - If you haven't already, become a fan of OFTOT on Facebook, join the blog network and follow me on Twitter. Or don't. Your choice, really.

off topic, but joey galloway visiting with the Steelers.

although hes in his late 30's i'd love to see him in black and gold.

I'd rather see Sweed get some more time on the field, and give ward a 2 or 3 year extension.

As for the blog thing, they're blogs. People browse to them.

Everyone's perception of good is going to be different.

Right, no, I said and meant nothing of "good" or "bad."

I just meant that I go on these random daily rants in which it might seem like I'm saying my point of view is "right," but I'm not.

I'm mostly doing it to entertain. And if anything, I'm just trying to start a conversation.

Though there will always be times...nahmeen?

If we're going to look for a receiver in that age range, why not take a look at Harrison, too?

that's all I ask, just make me chuckle, and show me some steelers stuff.
