Net weight 13 lbs.... Oops! We meant 11.2 lbs.
I wonder how many Super Bowl parties will have a cake in the shape of a deflated football on Sunday....
A Pennsylvania candy maker got some kicks out of a deflated chocolate football it made as it poked fun at the New England Patriots' Deflategate scandal.

Pittsbrugh Dad Responds To A Stupid News Story: PITTSBURGH DAD WATCHES "JAGOFF IN BAR" VIDEO

You might have heard that someone with a cameraphone caught Curt Wooton (who plays Pittsburgh Dad) at a sports bar have a reaction to the Steelers losing the big game that was probably calmer than 90% of the reactions in Pittsburgh. He used a few choice words that every adult has heard and probably used.  The person then posted it up on YouTube with a snarky title mentioning Pittsburgh Dad, not Curt.

It seems that KDKA decided this was newsworthy and ran a piece on it asking Pittsburghers what they thought---- and some people were upset with Curt for having a reaction (as I said) that 90% of the Steelers fans around the world had. it's total bullsh!t. It's a non-story and KDKA and everyone else that covered it as a real news story should be ashamed.

The good news is that Curt and Chris Preksta responded with this GREAT episode of Pittsburgh Dad.  Enjoy!

For anyone interested in gaming, you can get an invitation to the closed beta of Endgame: Ancient Truth, Google's follow up to their popular Ingress mobile game, by donating $5 or more to support the Cahokia Mounds and tagging that donation with "#AncSoc".  When you get the invitation, I would recommend joining the Cahokian line for a couple of reasons. Thanks.
This campaign is set up to raise $7,500 to purchase new brochures for Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site.  Please help!! Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site is considered one of the largest and most complex archaeological sites north of the great Pre-Columbian cities in Mexico.  It is one of only...

Niantic Labs is adding to the beta invite list again with another GoFundMe fundraiser. Except this time:
 • the project isn't really related to Endgame, like the Cahokia Mounds project was
 • they are asking for a $10 donation rather than just $5
 • the offer expires when the project has been fully funded
 • it's for the Endgame: Proving Ground "training" app (it sounds like this might eventually become the full-fledged Endgame mobile app, but I'm not sure why the name was changed)

Hey all. My blog is only about living in downtown Pittsburgh. My wife and I have lived - carless - for two years now.  Recent posts are about the Steel City Yellow Jackets (who are going to the ABA playoffs), a contest I'm running to support a small downtown business and the building that started the downtown living explosion. Please stop by!

Here we go STEELERS.
It sounds like the same old song we’ve heard for years, but now the “Here We Go” fight song has been updated.
