Tim Benz fills all your Ben Roethlisberger photoshop needs. And trust me, that is a bigger need than you would think. [WXDX/Tim Benz]

Hub Arkush of Pro Football Weekly absolutely tees off on the troubled quarterback, and says that the Steelers should release Roethlisberger. He probably thought some of those photoshops were real.  [Pro Football Weekly]

And what would a Big Ben hat trick of links be without getting the opinion of noted scholar Bill Romanowski? []

John Phillips of 93.7 The Fan took a road trip to Coors Field in Denver, and he provided this very thorough, photo-loaded recap for us. Three words for you: Rocky. Mountain. Oysters. [Food and Games]

The Pittsburgh Penguins recalled seven from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, including Forwards Dustin Jeffrey, Nick Johnson, Mark Letestu, Eric Tangradi and Tim Wallace, defenseman Steve Wagner and goaltender John Curry. Why stop at seven? []

David Schoenfeld took a look at every one of the 22 losses the Pirates had in Milwaukee from 2007-2010. Warning: this is not for the faint of heart. []

Charlie Batch's BP Management of Munhall apparently had an issue with some unpaid school taxes, and that was cleared up in full on Tuesday. The rough offseason for Steeler QBs continues. [PG]

Neal Huntington and Frank Coonelly both appeared with Vinnie and Cook on 93.7 The Fan on Tuesday morning, and if you're looking for news on John Russell getting his walking papers, you'll probably want to skip these interviews. [93.7 The Fan]

Ken Laird takes a look at the positives and negatives of the 2010 Steeler draftees. I'd say the only negative is that they took about 100 linebackers. [ESPN 1250]

Bryant McFadden scored a three-year extension with the Steelers, reports Jason La Canfora of The deal keeps him in town through 2012 and is worth $7.5 million in all. It also includes a provision that he be returned to the Pittsburgh West Cardinals in 2013. []

Dancing with the Celebrities of Pittsburgh is coming up soon, and it's a nice benefit for several area charities. But I'm thinking they're being a little generous with the "celebrity" label. An architect? A jewelry store owner? A stylist? I'm sure they're all nice people, but Pittsburgh is teeming with potential names for an event like this.

I think this competition could be infinitely more interesting. Throw in a Fedko, a Mikey and Big Bob, a Madden, a Talbot, a Skippy, a Malkin, a Krenn, a Wannstedt, and a Pompeani, and those tickets would go faster than Pens playoff seats.

You're telling me you wouldn't want to see that? []

The American Idol Live! Tour 2010 will be coming to the new Consol Energy Center on September 14. Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus, Didi Benami, Lee DeWyze, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Aaron Kelly, Katie Stevens and Tim Urban will all be on hand to perform. Tickets go on sale May 15. Pretty sure I'm washing my hair that night. [PG]

Carlos Mencia will be coming to the Byham Theater on June 20, and tickets for that show go on sale May 1. Definitely sure I'm washing my hair that night. [Trib]

Matt E. sent over a great email: "I just logged onto the Penguins shop website because I'm thinking about getting a new car and wanted to see if they had any window decals. Check out the MILF they have up there headlining/ modeling the Mother's Day collection. I'm not 100% sure it's supposed to be a mother, as it says "Women's Sale", but still, it got a laugh out of me."

and finally, Brian from the Watch Your Back website (and sponsor of the Tekulve t-shirt giveaway) picked a winner in the recent caption contest:

From reader CtB: "To show the world he had mastered the dark powers of Telekinesis, Dan Onorato was going to make an example... Nay, he was going to make a messy example of his arch rival, Luke Ravenstahl."

CtB, please email with your address and shirt size and we'll get this out to you ASAP.

And the biggest news of the night...

Peace out Ovie!

Chip said...

Hahaha... I'd love to hear people still argue Ovechkin is the best player in the world and Sid is overrated and blah blah blah... I don't even think Ovie is better than Geno.

Just keep standing around at the blue line waiting for that puck, Ovie.

Canadians look impressive and have that hot goal tender. Should be a good series. Hopefully we can break up the trap.

Hey, great. Thanks for the pic of the fried buffalo testicles, man. Fuck THAT shit.
