Boys and Ghouls, I'm ready!!! Are you?…Welcome back to another addition of the Hump Day Mix.Thanks for tuning in, as you know you’re master of ceremonies: DubSleazy, will be leading the charge and WV and Chachi will be the other 1/3’s of the TRIFORCE for this week’s mixery (Arnie is sitting out this round due to conflict with his schedule, 1BLKGLDFAN also has some hiccups as well.)…I am happy to be back after a week’s hiatus in Omaha for a wedding, and I am very glad that we got out of that Donkey slump and wrecked shop on the J-E-R-K-S. So let’s get down to the biz…yes the picks againts the Raiders the rants and the star studded eye-candy. So this being the first official 3.0 HUMP DAY MIX sit back and enjoy the show, 3rd season and were still pleasing. Now let’s get to the HUMP!!!
The Key differences and thoughts as well as how does it feel to not have any new names on the injury list?
DubSleazy: When it came down to and through all the x’s and o’s from last week to this week to next week, I scratch my head. Last week no Clark, no Deebo…no problem right?…wrong, we get Manning’ed. This past week no Taz, no Deebo, no problem…we run shop. Especially with some new flavor that coach Dad implemented to fluster Sanchize and his band of Green Horns…now to this week…Possibly again no Taz, and no Deebo…in the black hole…what type of D are we going to see…hopefully we "righted" the ship and we stomp the Silver and Black right where the sun don’t shine…as well as I am happy we don’t have any blaring holes for injuries win/win.
WV: Being able to look at the injury report and not see any new names on it is a rather awesome feeling. Now if we can get the names currently on the list healthy in short time, which would be awesome as well. The key difference between how the defense played in week one and week two, Mark Sanchez, now you may be confused as to how a player for the other team can help our defense, it's quite simple Mark Sanchez is no Peyton Manning and he doesn't run the no huddle as well as Peyton is capable of doing. No injuries so far I will take that as well.
Chachi: It feels good. In fact a lot of things feel good this week. Funny how 7 shorts days can turn the tide from blues to bombast. Ah Time. Regarding Injury, too many Steelers were already injured, the team couldn't afford more. But it's like winning an early round of Russian Roulette, there's not much room to celebrate. Next week is another game and if you can beat chance you hope the men play using sound techniques in order to preserve their bodies for the long haul. And injury has no bias, injury is not racist, injury doesn't care if you are Hulk Huge or Ain't Shit. Injury will eat Tom Brady with the same gusto as it eats Sabby Piscitelli.
DubSleazy: I am stating right now, were driving a huge friggin tank right into that sinkhole of a stadium in Oakland and were bringing their house that Al Davis built, right on Carson Palmer’s 5 head. Simple as that…on the Donkey side of the house, gaping holes in everything that was patched up when we played Toe-a-holic’s team. Thus we have knocked the rust out so to speak…
WV: The main and only point to shutting down the Raiders of Oakland this week is rather straight-forward, don't let Darren McFadden get rolling and allow Carson Palmer to throw it right to our DBs, because he'll be good for at least 2-3 of those types of plays. Against the Donkey’s well…just look at the game tape.
Chachi: I think there were a number of factors: The Offense was able to provide breathing room. The game was played on the road. Santonio's contribution was huge. Thank's Tone! Two early drive penalties allowed the Jets to march down the field and put up 10 points. During the second drive the Steelers Defense gave New York 20 yards in penalties. You don't win playing that kind of football. They appeared to make the right adjustments and played a pretty good remainder of the game. They did well enough to win. It was nice to hear Heyward's number called as the clock bled out.
How has the offense clicked, in the past 2 weeks and predictions against the Tales from the Crypt team (i.e. key components)?
DubSleazy: From a 2 week point the offense is doing well, I mean well enough to get to the redzone, therein lies our efficiency issues of getting 7’s instead of 3’s. When it comes down to it we will capitalize on CP’s mistakes hell ladies and gents we know this cumquat from the days when he played for the Bungels. Enough said…Offensive player of the game: BB he will go 17-22 303 yds 2 TD’s, and the Defensive player of the game, I’m going with the Wolverine 3 TFL, 2 sacks, 1 fumble recovery for a td…The Burgh 31 – Scumstains 13.
WV: I love this…Steelers 34 – Raiders 17, Offensive player of the game: Take your pick from our young money crew, I’m not flashing stats but were running the table. Defensive player of the game: The whole secondary…Let’s bring the pain!
Chachi: These are the things that are running through my mind as I'm more amped to begin my search for tasteful yetprovocative organic breasted women than wax any further in regards to Week 3. If the Steelers continue to play their strengths, make the proper adjustments during game situations, and execute their job assignments on all sides of the football they have the tools to put a bow on The Raiders and find themselves rested for Week 5 at 2 - 1. Tical. Scoreboard: Steelers 21 - Raiders 19
DubSleazy: Ok. I got one…I hate Donkey fans, I put them up there right next to Ratbird and Cryboy fans…no class whatsoever, while leaving the Donkey game I got hot dogs and beer cups ½ full might I add thrown at me while I was going into the tunnel. NO BUENO!
WV: I have a rant also (but nothing that chaps my ass), I have to talk about the greatest display of offense I have ever seen, there isn't too many times when you watch a football game and see a team score 42 points and still get blown out but I did this Friday night (And I have the box score to prove it) when my Alma Mater got blown out by the soon to be back to back state champion Wayne (WV) Pioneers. I saw 45 first quarter points, I saw 64 points in a half of football and I was 6 PAT kneel down away from seeing 90 points. It truly was the greatest display of offense I have ever seen.
Chachi: What I like about the early NFL campaign is parity. Right now the win loss records are pretty even. Dramatic comebacks and upsets in Week 2 after blowouts and hard fought happenstance victories in Week 1 have the horizon looking balanced. Ah, the magic time of year where every fan (excluding Jaguars and Browns) believes, if but for a mere quarter, that their franchise may compete for the greatest trophy of team accomplishment in the Free World.
(anyone else hear bagpipes?) The Steelers travel to the Left Coast in Week 3. There is a hole waiting for them out there and it is black but it has been wilting for years like tar that never sees shade. Did Carson Palmer during his time in Oakland sponsor a Cornhole Classic? Rants...meh....Tical!
and lets not forget this classic...

Now on to good looking women…
Hostess of the week:
DubSleazy: my oh my oh my…
and…I am now a fan of the Badgers…
WV: Yes… Hailing from the 2nd greatest city in America Chicago, Maria Kanellis
From the really high up city of Denver, CO, Eve Torres
Chachi: Now, The Beauties:
This week I am going with a classic array of imagery which hearken back to my youth, when times were simpler and JC Penny catalogues were titillating.
Cybill Sheppard (The Last Picture Show - Forget. About. It.)
Cheerleaders of the week:
DubSleazy: Yeah yeah…I was stargazing again…but the Donkey’s do have a lot of snow bunnies…catch my drift?!
and lastly that hit my di…er..my heart…
WV: No cheerleaders, just Suicide Girls I am a kid in a candy store right now!
Chachi: A 2 For 1 Bonus with Eve Plumb and Maureen McCormick (although this may not seem like the hottest selection at first glance, if you let your mind embrace the speculation that these girls may have gotten frisky familiar with one another during later season of The Brady Bunch, well, then it is a different concept altogether. Tical Marsha, Tical.)
Well…this wraps up yet another HDM mixfest…tune in next week, as we take on the other ½ of the PA bowl, the Filthy McNasty hoodlums a.k.a. Ze Dream Team 2.0, at the Ketchup bottle. Much love as always BTSC faithful…se la vie.
