A look back at the Steelers week that was: Mind Blown edition

BTSC’s random thought renegade is back with his bizarre look at the Steelers week that was.

BTSC continues their recap of the past week’s events for our readers. But where they went wrong was asking the one narcissistic writer that would put a bizarre spin on it to do it. So let’s all take a look at a BAD week in the Burgh together.

Monday 8/30

  • In a related story, I have just been offered the Senior Editor and Podcast Producer position at Bishop Sycamore. But seriously, if ESPN wants to broadcast High School...the Richland Rams of Johnstown, PA is a fantastic scholastic football program.
  • And my starter wife expected prophylaxis to work when I was out of town on business. Tuitt was placed on IR later on in the week.
  • Is it me or is the Steelers’ offensive line starting to have more question marks than the Riddler’s sport jacket? That Frank Gorshin knew fashion.
  • JuJu is getting lambasted for risking his 2021 season by performing something called the milk crate challenge. Please, I risk my life daily doing the milk shake challenge.
  • The first rule about Steelers Fight Club, Ray, don’t talk about Steelers Fight Club. The second rule about Steelers Fight Club, don’t...Oh screw it!!! Did Minkah really jack up Claypool?
  • I drove past BTSC Senior Editor Jeff Hartman’s house, I can’t confirm nor deny reports that sounds of champagne corks popping and Kool and the Gang’s “Celebration” were eminating from the house. There were also Arby’s Beef ‘N Cheddar wrappers strewn on the lawn, but that was me. But remember, Berry always seems to (like the Jefferson Starship song) seems to find his way back.

Tuesday 8/31

  • The Patriots are cutting Cam Newton and the Raiders are doing the same with Karl Joseph. Cue the calls to sign both.
  • I’d like to highlight a brilliant quote by Editor Dave Schofield, “Wow. Did anybody see this coming (I wish we had sarcasm font)…?”. Great scoop, Rapoport. Maybe if I try hard enough this (okay, I better not call him names, so...) guy will block me from Twitter like he did Hartman. Wait a second, hardly anyone follows me on Twitter.
  • I agree. This would be perfect. Get busy, Kevin Colbert. Please.
  • The Steelers got their roster down to the obligatory 53. As you will see, like Crystal Pepsi, nothing is permanent. How awesome was Crystal Pepsi?
  • The ice cream truck was out of Hello Kitty Ice Cream Popsicles and I had to settle for the Power Puff Girl treat with gumball eyes. You can question my manliness, but the HK Popsicle is phenomenal.
  • Had a weird headcahe and a low-grade fever tonight. Guess I was all amped-up from the cuts and the sherbety treat.

Wednesday 9/1

  • Had to get tested because of the fever, I’m sure it’s nothing. I think the dude poked my brain. If the Steelers want to add me to their testing statistics, they can.
  • Say it ain’t so, Joe.
  • Seriously, even I predicted this one. Even I moved on to the next woman that would go out with me after the Starter Mrs. BAD dumped my sorry behind.
  • What did I say to you about Crystal Pepsi. Things are getting interesting with the Practice Squad list. Excited for Gilbert. Also, is that Karl Joseph on there?
  • The Stat Geek predicted this...Zach Banner, Stephon Tuitt and Anthony McFarland were placed on the IR.

Thursday 9/3

  • Cue up the aforementioned No. 1 song from February 7, 1981...Gotta love Kool and the Gang. Ironically it was three years to the day that the Vikings signed Matt Wile who the Steelers cut in favor of Berry. I hope it’s 20 years before Minnesota inks Pressley Harvin III to a deal.
  • Looks like I’ve got the next 10 days free. I don’t get it, I wasn’t hanging out with the Tennessee Titans.

Friday 9/4

  • This is interesting. Doesn’t solve the nickelback problem. But they know more than I do see. Even the Steelers front office hates the band Nickleback so they don’t want one on their team.
  • Is he gonna pass the physical in La La Land? I wish the kid luck.


  • Learning about the loss of Tunch Ilkin on this day. Great Steeler, but even more an amazing human being. Not much more to say.

This was the significant week that was for the Steelers, mixed-in with my black-and-gold loving life. I’m sure next week will be full of Steelers happenings as well, so we’ll have to do this again. Have a great week, but better yet have a BAD one.
