Painting the dome for the big game

posted at 11:55 am on December 10, 2012 by

I’m taking a vacation day, but I thought you’d might like to see a few pictures from my visit to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers-Chargers game.  As most of you know, it didn’t go well for the home team; the Chargers won 34-24, in a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated.

I still had a blast, though, and I did follow through on one promise: I told the TEMS chatizens that I would get my head painted like a helmet.  Some of you may have already seen the results on Twitter, but my friend Michael took pictures before, during, and after the artwork.  Some of the reaction shots are hilarious:

Actually, I got a lot of positive reactions to this all day long … even at the airport on the way home. One woman asked me if I’d let her take a picture of me to show how insane Steeler fans can get, and I posed for her while her friends laughed. It turns out one of the women had the seat next to me on the flight home, and we had a nice conversation about pretty much everything except the Steelers. The first thing I did when I got home — after clearing the 12-14″ of snow off my driveway that had accumulated during the day — was get in the shower to clean up, which took a lot less work than I’d feared.

Anyway, I had a great time, and would do it again in a heartbeat, including the artwork!

How does that ad go?

Its only weird if it doesn’t work, or something?

Ha, you look great Ed!

eyesky on December 10, 2012 at 12:19 PM

Ed, you are a good sport!

sandspur on December 10, 2012 at 12:20 PM

Ed, we’re 0-2 when you attend games.

Watch from home from now on please.

ButterflyDragon on December 10, 2012 at 12:33 PM

I told my nephew about this. He’s a Steelers fan. Probably not this much of a Steelers fan.

Imagine your chagrin should the shower have NOT washed your tonsorial decoration away!

You know for someone who posts here as much as you do. I don’t get you. Lately nothing but personal attacks against Ed and Allah, not sure about Erika and Mary Katharine. Soon I will start taking wagers on how long Ed puts up with your crap. If you don’t like Ed move the heII on. Free advice, worth exactly what you are paying me for it. Don’t let the door hit you in the a s s on your way out. Or do, I really don’t give a crap.

C’mon, Ed, if you were a real Steeler’s fan, you’d have the helmet tattooed on your head. The look really does become you. ;-)

TXUS on December 10, 2012 at 2:11 PM

You look so tickled. Looks like you had a beautiful day, considering the time of year.

The next step is usually to go to Ace of Spades and trash HotAir.

Cindy Munford on December 10, 2012 at 2:14 PM

I was looking forward to seeing the paint job on your show today.
Good photos sir!

What, no throwback uniform?

Ed, we’re 0-2 when you attend games.

Watch from home from now on please.

Or tell us when you’re going so we can alert Las Vegas to take the Steelers game off the board. Actually, I wish it really worked that way; luck I believe in – superstition, not so much…

You sound like you actually think you matter. Even a little bit.

Cindy Munford on December 10, 2012 at 2:14 PM

Been there — done that. Will again and again, too.

They actually know what the score is over there. And how utterly reprehensibly Soft & Squishy™ HotAir.com has become since Michelle sold out to the highest bidder. AoSHQ doesn’t even list HotAir.com in their Blog Rolls anymore — and they list over a hundred ‘preferred’ sites.

Does that make you feel sad?

Aw — poor dear :(

Well — wake up and smell the coffee, toots.

FlatFoot on December 10, 2012 at 3:20 PM

I at least give you props for wearing the jersey of a former Georgia Bulldog player.

rivlax on December 10, 2012 at 3:22 PM

Yeah — the jersey of Hines Ward.

Even Honey Boo-Boo hasn’t cried in front of the cameras for 30 minutes straight — once much less twice. But then again — she hasn’t been cut from the team yet either.

Toots? LMAO! They may not have the HotAir Link but they borrow material and reference the bloggers all the time. It’s a great site. Do you think your comments are going to change anything?

Cindy Munford on December 10, 2012 at 4:01 PM

Keeping silent sure as heck won’t change anything back to its original glory around here. Besides — toeing the corporate line is what it’s all about within the Salem Communications owned Band of Bloggers.

You feel compelled to read what is written and then complain and whine about it. I feel compelled to write. Which one do you have any control over — whatsoever?

But hey — if doing absolutely nothing works for you — then that is what you should do. No need for you to worry about what others feel compelled to do either. Win-Win for you. So do that. Mmmm-kay?

I’m neither complaining or whining, just interested in what your goal is. Unlike you, I wouldn’t presume to know your intentions as you appear to to determine mine. So I asked. Just interested in the tactics of a long time HotAir commenter. My real opinion is that there is no win win, all loss. We all deal in our own way, knock yourself out.

For a woman that is.

Okay — and thanks for your permission too.

I hope your life gets better so you can emerge from your deep self-loathing some day. I truly do.
