My Pittsburgh friend Chipped Ham Sam

Chipped Ham Sam is the Pittsburgh Steelers # 1 fan. He was born on 10/12/75, exactly 9 months after the Lombardi trophy's first arrival in the "Burgh." Sam got his nickname from the massive quantities of chipped ham sammitches he can consume on any given Sunday during football season. He can often be found yelling at the television when he doesn't like a play "Come off it, for cryin' aht loud!" When Sam goes to a sports bar and they don't have the Steelers on, he'll say "How come yinz ain't watchin' the game, Picksburgh's on?" If someone makes fun of Sam's glorious mullet haircut, he'll scream "Quit jaggin' ahrand yinz jagoffs!" Sam is celebrating his team's first victory of the season against the Houston Texans today, 38-17. Go Steelers!

Congratulations to the Penn State Nittany Lions on their second victory of the season yesterday vs. the Oregon State Beavers. The Beavers came to Beaver Stadium in State College and got annihilated 45-14. Go State!
