TWO A DAY PRACTICES WITH NO DAYS OFF UNTIL AUGUST 6TH!!!!!!


“Probably a little heavier than they are used to,” Tomlin said, almost gleefully. “It will give them something to whine about.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

(Of course this happens on a day I will be no where near the eBays, but I am so excited I’m ready to run through the streets with my arms flailing around wildly!)

  3. Roy Hobbs says:

    Can I still cancel my Baseball Season Pass after watching hours of the Bucs getting slaughtered?

    Its FOOTBALL DAY!
    Its FOOTBALL DAY!
    Its FOOTBALL DAY!

  4. TheStarterBoyfriend says:

    My world may now commence spinning. The air smells sweeter. The sky a tad bluer. I hear birds chirping “Here we Steelers, here we go…” Goodness, these new mood enhancing drugs are FANTASTIC.

    I hope he makes Alan Faneca cry.

  5. Raskolnikov says:

    Two-a-days are starting? Time to do up-downs until I puke.

  6. Brian says:

    Training camps? Is that a sport?

  7. “I hope he makes Alan Faneca cry.”

    Now now… Faneca is already in fine form with the crying.

    I was just was getting a massage, and while I was sitting in the “quiet room” listening to these two Stepford Wives – one of which I think is on E! -nattering on about daycare, all I could think was, “Man. They really need the NFL Network or something in here. How can I relax knowing there MOTHERING FUCKING FOOTBALL STARTING!!!!!!”

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  8. (BTW – I don’t care where you are – hotel internet services blow.)

  9. I’ve been keeping my distance from any and all football news because its just too much of a tease, but once the Steelers are at St. Vincent’s its time to dive back in.

  10. Clare says:

    A few summers ago, I was driving down VA-267 past the Redskins’ training camp in Leesburg, and the Redskins’ convoy of four giant buses and a police escort passed me. Rolling down my window and shouting “REDSKINS SUCK!” felt really good.

  11. Roy Hobbs says:

    Dear Mike Tomlin -

    Please bring back the Oklahoma Drills.

    Thx.

  12. Polamalu is signed. 5 yrs 33 mil

  13. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  14. ladyandrea says:

    He’s so cute, I loved him when he played for St. Louis.

  15. Ellen says:

    Hey StarterWife, if you can post about Steelers training camp both here and comment the same after the Vikes preview on Deadspin, can we get a post on the Twins before baseball ends? Please? They called up Garrett Jones, he’s hot.

  16. Texas Gal says:

    We have been systematically working our way through all the MLB teams (ahem) with our Bringing the Heat posts – and the Twins are on the schedule with the rest. Soon, my dears…

  17. Ellen – I don’t know who is doing the Twins preview. Andie maybe? I know she’s covering the Blue Jays sometime this week.

    Thanks for the tip on Garrett Jones… a quick GIS shows that you are correct.,

  18. Clare says:

    Po-la-ma-lu! (Doo doo dee doo doot!)
    Po-la-ma-lu! (Doo doo dee doot!)
    Po-la-ma-lu! (Doo doo dee doo doot dee doo doot dee doo doot dee doo doot dee doo doot doot doot doot doot!)

  19. Have you seen Troy’s signing bonus? Bet Alan Faneca is crying like a little bitch NOW!

    HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
    HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
    HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
    HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    (BTW… Foreman’s future employment was a cliffhanger on House… Mike Tomlin begins training camp… hmmm…)

  20. Texas Gal says:

    Is this the proper place for me to say: LET’S GO COWBOYS!!!
    No?

  21. Hey, when your team decides to get their lazy asses in gear and start training camp… you can yell, “Go Cowboys” all you want.

    As of now, the rest of the NFL is a bunch of dandy lay-abouts who have decided to spend a few more days playing golf.

    I just read that Tomlin did strength tests/excerises today – the first day. Awesome.

  22. TheStarterBoyfriend says:

    And in case no one remembers what Clare is talking about, follow da link:

  23. Texas Gal says:

    We needed extra days to grease up Tony Romo’s butterfingers properly.

  24. Tuffy says:

    Toy Palmolive Too? That doesn’t many any sense. Look at me. I’m an erstwhile blogger and gadfly and I’m talking about toy soap. That doesn’t have anything to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ladies… of this blog, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.

  25. Yostal says:

    Training camp is here. Lions fans stock up on anti-depressants.

  26. chitowntiger says:

    Bears start on Friday. My Dad wants me to drive down to Bourbonnais with him, but I don’t think I can point out Mike Brown’s sweet ass to my father.

  27. Disco Stu says:

    Hopefully your quarterback’s not still woozy. Otherwise, bye-bye playoffs.

  28. DougOLis says:

    yay?

  29. UkraineNotWeak says:

    Jet Training Camp starts at the end of the week and for the first time in what seems forever, Chad Pennington is 100% healthy going into it. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Is it wrong that the words, “It’s the most wonderful time of year…” keep ringing in my head?

  31. Moonshine Mike says:

    Wow, someone needs to check on TSW. She doesn’t seem that excited that the Steelers minicamp has started.

    Steelers hired Laurence Fisburne as coach? wow!

  32. Tuffy says:

    “Aww, Ben. You know I loves you. Why you make me treat you like that? You know you’re the only quarterback in the world for me, but sometimes you just drive me so… so CRAZY. Why don’t you go on back to the locker room and put on some makeup for that little bruise? I’ll take you out for Italian tonight after curfew.”

  33. SA says:

    Is it wrong that the words, “It’s the most wonderful time of year…” keep ringing in my head?

    No. The week CFB starts I’ll be feeling the same way.

  34. RIP Vikings D. Tomlin is one of the best Humans in the NFL and the best young coach the league has seen in 10 years.

    I am Bleed purple/gold but any fan who was not in love with what Bill brought to the league, charity and his city are not fans the sport.

    I am excited to see the season start and get the very negitive aspects of this off season behind us. Remember this headline “The Minnesota Vikings select: Adrian Peterson and ride him home as NFC Champs”. I hate to say they will loose to the Colts in the Super Bowl.

  35. WOO HOO! And y’all had the good sense to make my fellow Trojan Alum Troy the richest Steeler EVAH!!!!

  36. TSW's M says:

    I think there are other things in life more important than football. The Iraq War, starvation and murder in Darfur, the ending of Harry Potter, will the Pirates ever have a winning season? Will I ever be a grandma? Who will the dem’s settle on for the 08 election? Nah………

    Here we go Steelers!

  37. Regina says:

    Football is back and there is so much to be thankful for.
    So lets be thankful for :

    Crisp fall days.

    A sport that is physical.

    Tailgating and BEER!!

    ESPN’s endless TC reports.

    Bad preseason games but with hot players we won’t see in the regular season.

    Da Bears!!

    Rex Grossman’s butt

    Bears Rookie Greg Olsen’s Raps

    Sweaty football hotties in the sun.

    Mr. Daniel Sepulveda!!!

    So lets be thankful for football has returned with all it’s men and glory!!

  38. [...] Carolina Panthers’ training camp is open. (Or, as TheStarterWife puts it, “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!”) Kris Jenkins is in camp, and if you had the under on his [...]
