The Steelers are off to a good start, which makes SWB happy.  When they lose, we have to suffer through the Monday morning mourning. You know, after a Steeler’s loss the traffic is slower, the coffee shop patrons take longer to pay for their drinks, road-rage is times ten, etc.

Everything changes when the Steelers win in Pittsburgh.

Now, if the the Steelers could rub off on the Pirates just a tad more.

Anyway … thanks Steelers … your win means less headaches for this weasel one this beautiful Monday mourning-less morning.


Changes To SWB

Our New Owners

Yup, we being taken over.

This is for the good.  After being inactive for a while, another site has inquired about taking over Screaming Weasel.  There will be changes, it will retain some of  the sarcasm, but will lose some of the “rantiness”  and negativity that it had when it started around 2005-2006 and rant blogs were the fad – although we will gripe a little through it,  and SWB will be the occasional guest writer.

We think you’ll like it … and what it will present about Pittsburgh.

Please welcome Karyon Nightly (sophisticatedpgh) as  the new main writer.


The Day After and the Road To Super Bowl 45

Yinzers getting ready the morning after AFC championship

Yep, we won again.  Being the courteous people that Pittsburghers are, we gave them a link of Parma Sausage and a cheese sampler from Penn Mac as a consolation prize.  We believe them a worth opponent, but not good enough to get that cool metal trophy we’ll put on out shelves.

We’re on the way to Super Bowl 45, Ben could bring in the Steeler’s 7th ring in his 7th season, by number 7.  Think of the lottery possibilities here folks.  This is an important win for the city – it will bring even more international recognition of our city, the sport of American football, and people.  The more people come to our city, the more jobs come with them.  Considering that, even if you aren’t a sports fan, you might want to start rooting for The Steelers to get ring 7.


SWB Off Hiatus, PittGirl is Back, and all is well in the city ..

pghprogess052108We’re back from an unintended hiatus, which included jobs loss, combating flooding from the last potential downpour, and keeping the newest tad-frog alive.

Hopefully that won’t happen again …. the flooding, at least.

Well, if you haven’t heard, The Burgh Blog in some way has been revived via Pittsburgh MagazinePittGirl is back. It’s nice to see an established publication like Pittsburgh Magazine acknowledge where the city’s readership is at, along with adding an educational writer to the mix.  Now, if they can just become desperate enough to notice me ……

Anyway, congrats to PittGirl, glad to see you in a new home.

This brings us back to all being well in the city.  The Steelers have the Super Bowl, the Pens brought the cup back home, and the Pirates ….. ok, well let’s skip the negative.

Even with the economy the way it has been, Pittsburgh is already starting it’s recovery without hitting rock bottom like so many other cities.  We can still see a light at the end of the tunnel – although everyone still slows to a crawl before entering (some things are just the way they are even during a bad economy).


PS – River rats never leave … we just hunker down a bit.

It’s the first day of Spring (training)

April 20, 2009 Leave a comment

swbbreaking1… and a few Steeler vets forgot to show up. Isn’t that kind of like a teacher not showing up for the first day of school after summer break?

Hopefully this isn’t a sign of the Steeler’s discipline breaking apart of the showing up of big heads that they don’t need to show up. I remember where that attitude got the Steelers previously. Anyway, it’s probably not that … super star sports figures *never* get big heads.

Supposedly a few flights got canceled, Willie Parker’s dog ate his plane ticket, Troy’s hair got stuck in the Taxi door, etc. 🙂 Honestly we don’t know if Willie has dog or not … but it sounded good, and we just couldn’t resist picking on Troy because he’s an all-around good guy.

PS – Good luck this year from SWB … and if yinz have an overabundance of tickets you know where to send ’em.

John Stallworth approved to buy into the Steelers

March 24, 2009 Leave a comment

Two time Steelers MVP John Stallworth has been approved to buy into the team that made him famous (or that he helped make famous, which ever way you look at it). SWB was wondering who the “nationally known” person was going to be that would be one of the possible three additional investors into the team – and Mr. Stallworth would definitely be a welcomed addition to the owners list of the six time Superbowl Champs, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

PS – He’s been as successful in business as he was in football. I’d pick him.

Rumors about Steelers adding investors true

March 19, 2009 Leave a comment

According to this article at the Tribune-Review by Scott Brown the Steelers have three possible new investors lined up to buy into the team. This all has to be approved and completed by March 31st, which is the dealine for restructuring ownership. Although the names are not being released, they are being said to be ones that would be easily recognized.

Considering the Steelers are loved greatly by Pittsburghers and beyond – this would be interesting reading to all … and maybe more money going into our already great football team.

Update: Additional article from the PG


PS – Go Steelers!!!
