Yesterday was the last chance NFL teams had to make the playoffs, and while most teams already knew their fate, for some there was a lot of pressure. Take the New York Jets, for example, who just had to beat the infamous lovable losers the Buffalo Bills. Well, we learned that payback for a bad firing is a b****, and that the Bills will make sure you lose. Which means that the Jets are out, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are in. Ahh Pittsburgh, you may be the luckiest city right now, barely getting that that 6 seed in the AFC.
Also housed in Pittsburgh is the MLB team the Pirates, and two hours directly east of them is their AA team, the Altoona Curve. While generally unheard of, this team has some fan-please moments in their being, like for example playing in a stadium called ‘Peoples Natural Gas.’ Ahhh, so many fart jokes!!!
The logo contains their first born mascot Tenacious, a railroad worker who is there to represent the history of the area, as well as the modeling of the ballpark.
Cute and all, but I think the real winner on this team is Al Tuna, the certified Rally Specialist, who states he has the ‘best dance moves north of the South Pole.’
His celebrity idol is Flipper, but he’s better than Flipper because he can breathe in AND out of water! Cool!
Just to get your Monday back to work started on a high note, know that this team once had an ‘Awful Night,’ in which the first 1000 fans were awarded a photo of the GM’s gall bladder after he recently had to have it removed, and one of them was even lucky enough to win the gall bladder itself. Isn’t that…. a great prize?
Happy 2016, and welcome back to work 🙂
